Alexandra Hospital


Alexandra Hospital (AH) strongly encourages re-employment of mature and older employees and has made concerted efforts to achieve this as one of their corporate goals. Re-hiring is also based on the workers’ health and performance, with pre-retirement planning and consultation provided. The workers are re-hired on renewable one-year contracts. The hospital also does not cut the wages of its employees after they turn 60, even though it is allowed to reduce wages by up to 10% under the Retirement Age Act.

An employee who was re-hired to take on a different role is 70-year-old Mr William Low. "Uncle William", as he is affectionately known in AH, used to work as a hospital health attendant. IT-savvy, he is now working as an event coordinator within AH, and handles event logistics such as sound systems and lighting.
