To achieve KWSH’s mission and vision, the Management engages key stakeholders to formulate both a 5-year plan as well as a yearly plan. These plans are presented to the Executive Committee (EXCO) for approval and yearly budget adoption.
Action plan for achieving mission
Management has worked out a corporate score card with the EXCO. This score card covers all the key performance indicators/outcomes which are consistent with our mission and span areas such as customers, clinical, processes, strategic pillars, governance, finance and HR. The status of the corporate score card is presented to the EXCO on a quarterly basis.
The Management team also monitors a set of Departmental KPIs at the operational level to ensure the key performance indicators/outcomes are achieved.
KWSH has charted a strategy plan till 2024. Known as “Beyond 2020”, the plan works toward our mission and vision through a mapping of our clients and the region we serve, with detailed information on the health/physical conditions we are focusing on. A number of strategic thrusts have also been developed with budgetary and resource projections carried out for the implementation of the Beyond 2020 strategy plan.

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.
