Raffles Medical Group (RMG) Ward 13 Emergency Care Collaboration* (ECC) inpatients
AMF volunteers engage with patients at Raffles Hospital’s ECC ward on a Saturday afternoon through board games to stave off loneliness and keep the patients’ minds active. The ECC is a partnership with the Ministry of Health for RMG to take in acute and emergency patients at a subsidised rate so that public hospitals can better manage their resources.
