Our Logo

The Dover Park Hospice logo features two forms — the Circle of Life and the Dove

The Circle represents the passage of life — the trials and experiences from a life well lived; a wisdom and certainty that come with age; a personification that death is but the natural completion of life’s cycle.

Significantly, the Circle is not enclosed, allowing the Dove to soar free from the Circle and take flight towards another realm, full of hope and dignity. A subtle shadow in the background hints at the care and compassion that has supported this journey.

A series of artistic brushstrokes blends three key colours — Teal, Sky Blue and Dove Grey — to form images depicting the Circle and Dove, signifying the graceful transition into timeless serenity.

  • Teal — a symbol of trust, dedication and healing
  • Sky Blue — evokes a sense of grace and peace; also brings to mind the “limitlessness” of a blue sky
  • Dove Grey — this warm neutral grey is associated with tranquility and timelessness, suggesting a peaceful state of being

    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 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.
