The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as:
- The place of intersection of two or more roads
- A small community located at such a crossroads
- A central meeting place
- A crucial point especially where a decision must be made
Crossroads was chosen because the clinic is situated right at the cross-junction of Tampines Ave 9 and Ave 6.
We aim to be a place where lives intersect and where long term relationships are built – among the staff at Crossroads, between our doctors and patients, between clinic staff and patients.
We also want to help you make healthcare decisions in your life. We strive to be your preferred partner in your healthcare “crossroads” – big or small.
Lastly, the term crossroads is inspired by a verse in the bible – Matthew 16:24. Jesus, on his own road to the cross, explained to his disciples how they must deny themselves, take up their cross and follow him.
“As a Christian, I am sure of my calling in life. I am called to deny myself and to serve others as I follow Jesus. This I aim to do, to serve all patients who come my way in Crossroads Family Clinic, with love, compassion and humility.”Dr Quah Soon Wee, Family Physician, Crossroads Family Clinic
