Hospital Sungai Long today (March 6th, 2015) announced that it is adopting a new name, Sg Long Medical Centre Sdn Bhd.
“Sg Long Medical Centre or SLMC in short, will better reflect our medical service to the community in Sg Long,” said Ms Yeo Eng Lam, CEO of SLMC. "Many in the community already refer us as a medical center. It is a place of serious medicine and to us, patients always come first. The name is changing; our mission, commitment and philosophy are not," Ms Yeo said.
In making this decision, SLMC’s Board of Directors felt that the previous name did not reflect accurately the wide spectrum of specialist medical care that the hospital already provides.
"We recognized the need for a clearer identity with a name that customers know, trust and already associate with us," Ms Yeo said. The new name will bring other changes to the hospital, including the logo and signs posted in the hospital.
