About Us

Assunta Hospital Today

With over 100 specialists, the 245-bedded Assunta Hospital is now a technologically-advanced specialist hospital. The School of Nursing was also upgraded to become the Tun Tan Cheng Lock College of Nursing in 1995.

Over the years, the hospital continues to pour its heart and soul and a significant part of its profits into community work, some of which have even won regional recognition, such as the Passionately You campaign initiated in 2008 to raise awareness on breast and cervical cancers. Guided by the light of hope of the FMM sisters, Assunta Hospital will continue to evolve and grow, providing care in the true spirit of its founders.
