Who We Are

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.

Our core service, home hospice care, is provided at no charge to about 3,600 patients annually. As our patients vary from newly-born infants to the elderly, we also operate a Day Hospice programme for mobile patients and paediatric palliative care (Star PALS) programme for children as part of our core services. Our 24/7 hotline ensures help is available round-the-clock.

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.

HCA's Strategic Directions for FY22-26

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:

  1. Leverage on strong foundations and continual innovation.
  2. Prioritise depth and quality care.

  3. Foster greater collaboration.
