About the awards

The Eastern Health (EH) Alliance Caring Awards was created last year to pay tribute to exemplary staff, patients and caregivers from the Eastern Health Alliance.

The alliance is made up of Changi General Hospital, Health Promotion Board, St Andrew's Community Hospital, SingHealth Polyclinics and The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home.

A total of 1,007 awards will be given out today. Among them, three are honoured as patients and seven as caregivers.

The recipients were first nominated or recommended by EH Alliance staff members, before being reviewed and selected by a panel of representatives from the alliance.

An inaugural Superstar Award will also be given to Senior Staff Nurse Pearly Tan for her exceptional level of patient care.
