The Dover Park Promise

At Dover Park Hospice, we treasure life even in one’s last days. With compassion, we alleviate suffering and maximise quality of life for the terminally-ill and their loved ones through a holistic approach.

 


Our History

Founded in 1992, Dover Park Hospice is Singapore’s first purpose-built hospice, caring for those nearing the end of life’s journey.

As a secular, non-profit organisation, we open our doors to people of every age, race, religion, and income level. Our team of healthcare professionals and volunteers is wholly committed to their calling to enhance the living, comfort the dying, and support the grieving with compassion and dignity.

Our premises have served as a tranquil sanctuary for over 10,000 patients and families over the years, as we meet their unique physical, emotional, psycho-social, and spiritual needs through our brand of holistic palliative care.

 


Operations & Funding

To give our patients the level of care they deserve, we rely largely on fundraising activities and generous donations. This allows more than 80% of our patients to be heavily subsidised, paying only nominal sums.

Our annual operating budget expenditure is estimated at $14 million, of which 40% is met by government funds, while the rest is raised through kind contributions from individuals and corporate well-wishers.
