Be at the forefront of public healthcare!

We offer you the unique opportunity to innovate and shape the way healthcare is delivered. We have already begun work in our pre-operations wards located in the Yishun Health campus and Tan Tock Seng Hospital. We are looking for highly-motivated individuals from Medical, Nursing, Allied Health, Ancillary and Administrative fields, to JOIN US and be part of our rapidly growing healthcare family.

Nurses are the hearts and hands of WHC. You will use your skills to not only treat the sick and injured, but also offer guidance, psychological and emotional support to patients and their families. Together with a multidisciplinary team, you will play a leading role in providing compassionate and dignified care to our patients. You also have the opportunity to pass on your specialised knowledge by training caregivers to provide basic care, and educate patients and their families. Choose from several possible career paths in clinical, education and management to realise your full potential.

Muhammad Faiz

“The resilience of the human spirit is amazing. Some may think that nursing is a thankless profession but it can be very fulfilling if you know where to look. For example, in the wards, even though patients may be complete strangers, there is a sense of friendship and camaraderie as they encourage each other on their care journeys. I cannot help but be inspired myself.”
- Muhammad Faiz, Senior Staff Nurse


Agnes Wong

“I conduct home visits in the community and help make sure that they are able to manage their conditions well in the community. I enjoy building relationships with my patients and their families. There’s a great sense of satisfaction when you see that trust grow, and they open up to you about their lives. It’s a great opportunity for me to meet different people in the community. I’m not only helping our community care for themselves but learning from them at the same time.””
- Agnes Wong, Assistant Nurse Clinician

Ng Suyee

“As a Physiotherapist I am able to interact with patients and be part of their rehabilitation journey. I don’t see myself as working for or on the patients, but with the patients as their personal life coach to help them regain a level independence and dignity. That is very meaningful for me. And when we see our patients recover, there’s an even greater sense of satisfaction.”
- Ng Suyee, Senior Physiotherapist

Medicine is a wide field with many specialty areas to choose from including Anaesthesia, Cardiology, Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT), Gastroenterology or Orthopaedic.

Dr Pinakin Vijaykumar Parekh

“My first major encounter with the healthcare sector was after my father developed heart trouble. I was humbled and inspired by the care shown by healthcare professionals to my family and me at the time. The experience helped me realise my calling to become a cardiologist. It was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made.”
