More than 2500 people turned up at Bishan Stadium on Sunday (Oct 16), for the largest reunion of people born at the same hospital. A total of 2,241 people were eventually authenticated as being born in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) to break the Guinness world record.

Members of the public some aged as young as 7 and the oldest being 85, took part in the record-breaking attempt. Participants had to prove they were born at KKH by producing their birth certificate and their NRIC.

The Medical City, a hospital in the Philippines, was the previous record-holder. It set the record on 12 Apr 2012 with a reunion of 1,221 individuals who were born in that hospital.

KKH had previously held the Guinness world record for being the largest maternity hospital with a record 39,835 babies born in 1966. It held the record for 10 years.Follow us on Social Media
