CGH 88th Anniversary

In 2023, Changi General Hospital (CGH) commemorates 88 years of clinical excellence and trusted care for the community.

Our legacy of care dates back to1935, when the old British Royal Air Force Hospital was built at Changi. Even back then, Changi was an area recognised as well-suited for relaxation and recreation — a place conducive for the healing of both body and mind.

Thomson Road Hospital, which was later renamed Toa Payoh Hospital in the 1970s and renowned as an innovative general hospital with a strong tradition in clinical excellence, served the then new towns including Toa Payoh, Ang Mo Kio, Yishun, Serangoon and Bishan to meet rapidly growing healthcare needs.

With the introduction of more medical services and increasing patients, Changi Hospital merged with Toa Payoh Hospital in 1997, to become what is known today Changi General Hospital. 

The CGH care team builds on this longstanding heritage of care and healing as an academic healthcare system, focused on medical and health research, clinical education and healthcare innovation.

As part of the 88th anniversary celebrations, CGH will be holding landmark events throughout the year to honour the enduring contributions and experiences of former and present staff, donors, patients and the community.
