What.

Update (Oct. 10, 2013, 6:05pm): Audrey Lau, director of the Corporate Development Division at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital has written to New Nation about our “factually incorrect” post.

It was initially stated in this post that KK Hospital and Gleneagles have introduced a service for parents of new born babies.

However, she wrote: “We would like to place on record that the information implied by your post is factually incorrect. KKH does not have an additional charge to patients for the use of this system. The Lianhe Wanbao report referred to in your post clearly mentions that KKH does not charge patients.”

New Nation will be updating this post to include any new information.

Including those from Lianhe Wanbao and Gleneagles, if any.

$15-baby

One hospital, Gleneagles, has introduced a service for parents of new born babies.

To ensure they are given 100% assurance that the baby they are carrying home is theirs, all they need to do is to pay an additional $15.

An incident in November last year in KK Hospital involved a mix-up, which resulted in two babies going home with the wrong parents.
