The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic highlighted the importance of medical care for everyone including ensuring the well-being of migrant workers in Singapore.
The mission of St. Andrew’s Mission Hospital (SAMH) is to provide holistic care and healing to the underserved and disadvantaged.
From 2012 till just before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Andrews Community Hospital, a service of SAMH, with support from St. Andrew’s Cathedral Medical Fellowship as well as volunteer doctors, nurses and support staff, was operating a regular free mobile clinic service for migrant worker dormitories.
To provide better health care to migrant workers, SAMH has partnered the Estate of Khoo Teck Puat, the Estate of Ng Teng Fong and the Singapore Business Federation Foundation to set up a purpose-built and pandemic-ready medical centre offering the full-range of primary care services. St. Andrew’s Migrant Worker Medical Centre (SAMWMC) is the first of six medical centres for Migrant Workers that the Ministry of Manpower has planned as part of a new and integrated primary medical care plan for all migrant workers in Singapore.
From 1 April 2022, employers must purchase a Primary Care Plan (PCP) as part of work pass requirements for Work Permit and S Pass holders who live in dormitories, or who work in the Construction, Marine Shipyard and Process (CMP) sectors. SAMH is one of the PCP anchor operator.
