Mr Chan Kim Ying, Managing Director of Thye Shan Medical Hall, was interviewed by 美香 of Singapore’s 883 JIA FM Radio Station.
In the interview, he talked briefly about the struggles Thye Shan faced over the years (1. As a family how his elder brother passed on despite being spearheaded to be the next leader to lead Thye Shan, and hence him coming into Thye Shan. 2. Struggles of the business during the Asian Financial Crisis as the first big hurdle. 3. The double whammy of having the Chinatown revamp during the beginning of the Asian Financial Crisis recovery. During then, sales in a day could be less than $100 and we had to feed at least 10 staff. Thye Shan was almost going into the history books. 4. Huge regulatory changes in that shook up the Traditional Chinese Medicine industry.).
He also shared how Thye Shan overcame it as a team and as a family. Thereafter, he spoke on how Thye Shan continues to improve on the values of Quality and Trust. He is insistent on upholding a certain standard of delivering TCM and keeping up with the times by changing treatment methods and the medicines available.
We would like to thank 883 JIA FM and 美香 for the opportunity to feature the Thye Shan story to the public. 美香 gave a great angle on Thye Shan’s story and what Thye Shan stands today.
