ABOUT US

St. Andrew’s Community Hospital (SACH) is a service of St. Andrew’s Mission Hospital.

Established in 1992, SACH was the first community hospital in Singapore set up to provide affordable intermediate medical care. We are focused on providing rehabilitation and sub-acute care to children, adults and the elderly; including those with dementia or needing palliative care. Our outpatient services include day rehabilitation, community therapy, primary care, home healthcare and other senior care services.

Community hospitals play an important role in providing continuing care for patients upon their discharge from acute care hospitals. SACH aims to promote recovery and help patients integrate back into the community after their discharge.

Our Vision
To be a light in a dark place, that ignorance would be replaced by knowledge and understanding; physical distress by comfort and healing.

Our Mission
To provide medical services characterised by Christian love and compassion to all in need, regardless of race, religion or social-economic status.

Our Core Values

Light: We are a beacon of light to our patients, caring for them with compassion and giving them hope.
Integrity: We show integrity through the highest ethical standards in speech, word and action.
Growth: We are committed to continuous professional growth, and applying the best of skills to those in our care.
Honour: We honor our patients, staff and volunteers by treating them with respect and dignity.
Teamwork: We value teamwork and nurture an environment of trust and collaboration.
