What's in a name?

Hospitals in Singapore

Do you know why New Changi Hospital (NCH) changed its name to Changi General Hospital (CGH)?

Because NCH stands for 'Never Come Home'.

That's why business was very bad before it changed its name.

Now CGH stands for 'Can Go Home'. So business is picking up.

Business in Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is still going strong because SGH stands for 'Sure Go Home'!

Now National University Hospital (NUH) is also considering a name change. It stands for 'No Use Hospital'!

What about Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH)?

Not too good a name, no wonder so much problem. It stands for 'Tiam
Tiam Si Hospital' (Die Quietly).
