REGISTRATION HOURS / CHARGES


Despite the continuous increase in medication and operation expenses, with the continuous support from our generous donors from all walks of life, Singapore Chung Hwa Medical Institution has managed to maintain minimal charges for the past ten years.
But in these recent years, with prices of medication having risen substantially, in addition to operation expenses remaining high, finances of Singapore Chung Hwa Medical Institution has run into serious deficit. In order to ensure continuous provision of high quality medical services, patients will be charged as below fees.
