HCA Hospice (HCA) is Singapore’s largest home hospice care provider and is a registered charity since 1989. As a charity, we provide comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses regardless of age, religion, ethnicity, nationality and financial status.
Besides medical care for patients, we provide psychological support for our patients and their caregivers as well, in the form of bereavement support and outreach programmes. As an NCSS Centre of Specialisation for palliative care, we conduct palliative care training for caregivers to equip them with the requisite skills.
In the next five years, we aim to deepen the quality of patient-centred and family-focused hospice care through targeted care and support models. By adopting robust research principles and practices, we endeavour to establish HCA’s thought and practice leadership in the home hospice space.
To achieve these strategic directions, we are adopting a multi-pronged approach:
Prioritise depth and quality care.
Foster greater collaboration.
HCA Hospice exists to promote and provide skilled and compassionate hospice care of the highest quality, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. We are also here for the people closest to our patients, offering support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.
Compassion – We care deeply for and act with kindness, consideration and care with our patients, their loved ones, our colleagues and ourselves.
Professionalism – We are reliable, committed to seeking higher standards, care about every aspect of our job and hold ourselves accountable for our thoughts, words and actions.

Collaboration – We support each other with our varied expertise, overcoming our differences to achieve a common goal.
Integrity – We are honest, ethical, and trustworthy in all dealings.
