Strategic Planning

Since its founding in 1910, KWSH remains rooted to its role as a charitable organization looking after the healthcare needs of elderly in the community.

The KWSH Board of Directors approved a 10-year plan that will bring us to 2033. The key strategic thrusts are:

1. To be the institution of choice for clients and residents

  • Create top of mind awareness among clients, residents and the public
  • Provide a positive experience that people will talk about and propagate

 

2. To be the preferred place to work for employees

  • Develop a conducive and inclusive culture at the workplace
  • Become an employer of choice
  • Provide personal and career development for staff

 

3. To be the leading organization in ILTC

  • Increase capacity and capability, and develop wider range of services
  • Become the Centre of Excellence for training and innovation in eldercare services

With the enactment of The Kwong-Wai-Shiu Free Hospital (Transfer of Undertaking and Dissolution) Act 2017 on 19 May 2017, the old Kwong-Wai-Shiu Hospital Ordinance, enacted in 1910 when KWSH was founded, has ceased to exist. Instead, a successor company, in the form of a company limited by guarantee, has taken over all the assets and liabilities, thus allowing KWSH to operate under a modernised corporate structure. Such changes provide KWSH with greater flexibility to provide quality healthcare services to Singaporeans.

The Kwong-Wai-Shiu Free Hospital (Transfer of Undertaking and Dissolution) Bill was first read in Parliament on 7 November 2016 and subsequently passed on 3 April 2017.

Open performance appraisals are conducted with staff annually. Staff are assessed based on their competencies and performance. The appraisal provides for planning of work objectives, training and development needs, and feedback on performance. 

The appointment and setting of remuneration for key staff would be subjected to approval by the HR Committee.
