Caring

LATEST - Issue 6 (2023)

In this issue of CARING, learn about the endocrine system and two common conditions – hypertension and diabetes as we navigate the body’s chemistry. Discover the multi-disciplinary care provided for patients with endocrine conditions at the Changi General Hospital Diabetes, Obesity, Metabolic and Endocrine (DOME) Centre and how we redefined the diagnosis of salt sensitive and curable forms of hypertension through technology and research. Also gain insights into reducing sodium intake in our diets, as prolonged and excessive sodium intake can lead to health complications such as hypertension.

In 2023, the Caring General Hospital commemorated its longstanding legacy of caring for our community. Look back on highlights and achievements of the milestone year with a toast to 88 years of trusted care.

Find out more about how the Caring General Hospital empowers seniors to stay healthy over 65 and set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM title for the Largest Senior Citizen’s Health Awareness Lesson, and how the CGH Community Psychogeriatric Programme team drives mental well-being for seniors in the community. 

Leading with optimism, Prof Ng Wai Hoe shares his memorable journey and reflections of his time as Chief Executive Officer of CGH, as he moves on to take on the role of Group Chief Executive of SingHealth on 1 February 2024.
