Providing Excellent and Affordable Care
Dr Tan E-Ching, a Senior Family Physician in a group practice for the last 20 years, saw a rising trend of mental health problems like anxiety, depression and sleep disorders. Many chronic medical problems like hypertension, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, obesity and cancers were on the rise.
Pharmacological interventions using medications were useful but Dr Tan saw an immense need for practitioners who could provide holistic care, counselling and help patients navigate their path of healing in an integrated way.
This inspired Dr Tan to start Hallmark Health to care for patients’ total well-being, treating the root causes and not just the symptoms.
Dr Tan is also very passionate about promoting mental health in youths and adults through education. She firmly believes that mere academic excellence is inadequate. Only a resilient individual with high emotional intelligence and excellent communication skills will be equipped for life.
Thus, the centre runs programs customised for different age groups. These programs equip participants with important foundational tools like mindfulness, confidence, calm, courage, vitality, communication and leadership skills. With greater inner resources and strengths, one is able to take on the challenges of life with calmness and resilience.
