Celebrating Our Everyday Heroes

Singapore Operations Division held its annual Nurses’ Day celebrations on 1 August 2019 at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.

Nursing staff across all four hospitals in Singapore enjoyed a day of fun and celebrations on this special occasion to appreciate our nurses for making a positive impact to patient care.

Kicking off the event, CEO of Singapore Operations Division Phua Tien Beng paid tribute to our nurses and thanked them for their hard work and dedication. Following that was a baton passing ceremony which saw Elaine Ng, Group Head of Nursing of IHH Healthcare, handing over her Singapore leadership portfolio to Josephine Ong as she took on her new role as Director of Nursing, Singapore Operations Division.

Highlights also included the presentation of awards to outstanding nurses and talented song and dance performances including an original number by our very own stars of the day, our nurses! Celebrations continued into the afternoon with a talent contest, The Clash of the Titan, where five participants went head-to-head displaying their skills of dance, song and magic. There was also a trivia segment with prizes given out to winning teams.

As advocates of your patients and the healthcare industry, remember that you are empowered to “Create Value and Make a Difference”. Don’t be shy to voice out your ideas and be active contributors of patient care. The organisation will continually support you in your aspirations and provide a nurturing and collaborative environment where you as nurses can thrive and reach your fullest potential.
