WHO WE ARE
In 1913, Dr. Charlotte Ferguson-Davie, wife of the first Bishop of Singapore, had a mission: to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of those most neglected in society – women and children. A humble dispensary was set up at Bencoolen Street for this purpose. This marked the start of a long and illustrious journey of the St. Andrew’s Medical Mission. The humble dispensary grew into the full-fledged St. Andrew’s Mission Hospital in 1923. It was incorporated under an Act of Parliament: The St. Andrew’s Mission Hospital Ordinance in 1934. Since its inception, the hospital purposed to serve all regardless of race, religion and socio-economic status.
Today, St. Andrew’s Mission Hospital (SAMH) is a community service arm of the Diocese of Singapore. It is a not-for-profit voluntary welfare organisation and an approved Institute of Public Character: HEF0036/G, from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2020; UEN No.: T08CC3017C.
