In spite of the complex medical conditions and the sheer numbers of patients we treat daily, patients who come through our doors are constantly reminded that they are children or women first, and patients second.
It's this belief in personalised patient-centred care, together with our medical expertise, that has created a tradition of medical excellence at KKH. And this fundamental principle still holds true to this day.
Sharing with you, the community - that's something we believe very strongly in. That's why our doctors and staff volunteer their services and time to speak at public forums, companies and organisations at the grassroots level
Back in the colonial days, a General Hospital was built in the Kandang Kerbau District. It was segregated into two sections – one section for the Europeans (the Seaman’s Hospital) and the other for the locals (the Police Hospital).
In 1872, in an attempt to control the spread of venereal disease, the female ward of the hospital was converted into a Lock Hospital, for compulsory screening and treatment of women with venereal diseases. In 1888, with a change in the law, compulsory screening and treatment were stopped. The facilities at the Lock Hospital were then used as a home for women and girls. Then in 1905, female pauper patients from Tan Tock Seng Hospital were transferred to the General Hospital at Kandang Kerbau District. Subsequently, the hospital was also used to house female lepers and poor children. It eventually became the Pauper Hospital for Women and Children.
