​About Us​​

​WH Department of Medicine is dedicated to delivering comprehensive, streamlined, and safe healthcare services in a timely manner.

The team, consisting of both internal medicine physicians and subspecialists from diverse fields, provides evidence-based medicine and comprehensive care​​ for various acute and chronic medical conditions.​


Our services​​

WH Department of Medicine provides comprehensive services to address a wide range of medical conditions, from complex and undifferentiated ailments to chronic diseases. In addition to providing acute care, we continue to care for patients beyond their inpatient stay to maintain their well-being. Each patient has a principal clinician who coordinates their care, often involving collaboration among multiple providers. 

We offer a broad range of services tailored to address the individual needs of each patient. Our services encompass general medical care, specialised services, and niche areas such as Perioperative Medicine and Vascular Medicine.
