Be inspired by the generosity of members of the Chinese community such as Tan Jiak Kim, as well as passionate doctors such as Lim Boon Keng, who dedicated their lives to laying the foundation of Singapore’s medical education and healthcare system. At the same time, learn more about SGH’s role during the Japanese Occupation.
