Past Events

International Nurses Day is observed around the world to commemorate the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, and to mark the contributions that nurses make to society. She is respected and praised for extending her hands selflessly to those in need of help and for leading nurses to the frontline to help the injured soldiers besides serving in non-profit medical care organisation without any consideration of rewards and remuneration.

Sau Seng Lum prepared a scrumptious meal on 30th April 2019 to celebrate the effort and dedication of its nursing staffs.

In his speech, Mr Wong Peng Wah, the Vice President thanked all the nursing staffs for serving in Sau Seng Lum which is a non-profit organisation that differs from the other medical organisations as it offers low-cost medical services and requires the contribution and donation from the benevolent people to continue its operation.

“Despite our limitations, you are still willing to serve in Sau Seng Lum, I therefore believe this is because of your enthusiasm and interest in your work and to serve the society with your kind heart and compassion regardless of race and religion, and treating each and every patient like your own relatives. On behalf of Sau Seng Lum, I offer you my sincere gratitude.”

Mr Wong also mentioned that the staff’s dedication and diligence at work had directly raised the service quality and reputation of Sau Seng Lum Haemodialysis Centre which has now established a reputable image in the marketplace and has gained the trust and support of the people to indirectly attract strong financial support for the Centre. Thus it can be seen that the dedicated medical staff is the most valuable asset to Sau Seng Lum Haemodialysis Centre.

Mr Wong said, since the establishment of the centre in 1994, it has assisted 6 patients to undergo kidney transplant. In 2003, Sau Seng Lum became the first dialysis centre to be awarded the ISO 9001: 2000 Quality Management System. The centre also cooperates and establishes working relationship with University Malaya Medical Centre in which doctors regularly attend to the centre’s patients. This is the result of serving the society together.

The Nurses’ Day celebration included a lucky draw session in which the lucky winners took home a hamper each. The celebration successfully ended in a warm and harmonious atmosphere.
