Bouquets: KKH team deserves praise

KKH team deserves praise

I would like to commend the team at KKH, particularly my doctor Assoc Prof Han How Chuan and the staff of maternity ward 82 as well as the lactation nurses, following the recent delivery of my child.

Despite an unexpectedly difficult labour and recovery process, the team’s top-notch care, encouragement and empathy made my hospital stay, and post-discharge care, much better than expected.

During my pregnancy, a number of people around me had tried to persuade me to have my first baby at a private hospital instead of KKH. So after my delivery, I thought it only fair that I shared my positive  experience and also to say that I am really proud that one of our public hospitals has such high standards.
