Our Campaign Storyends 17 Jan 2021, 11:59 PM
The great work this hospital is committed towards the elderly community and others in need, in Singapore really warms my heart. A large part of their success is due to the excellent service their wonderful essential workers are doing, all done in tender loving care. I believe the funds will help defray the subsidised cost for attending to low income patients in the community at the hospital. As we move into the new year 2021, I would like to ask that we all give a little ... I remember my late mom used to say, "sharing is caring" ... so, let's donate generously for this cause? Thanks a million in advance!
According to the Hospital, COVID-19 has affected the hospital in many ways, including fundraising. Several fundraising events were cancelled but the needs of patients still need to be met. Chronic conditions such as diabetes must still be managed. Wounds must still be cleaned. Therapy is still needed so people can regain their ability to carry out activities of daily living. Persons with dementia and their caregivers still need help coping day and night.
As a charity hospital, most of the patients are lower income. They may have cancer, pneumonia, dementia, stroke, fractures, and may have undergone surgery and amputations.
About The Charity
St Luke's Hospital, named after the patron saint of the medical profession, was the first hospital in Singapore dedicated to the elderly sick.
We have expanded our services beyond the elderly to enrich more lives. An Institution of a Public Character, we care for 2,000 inpatients and 3,000 outpatients each year, regardless of race, language or religion. As illnesses may be long and chronic, we care holistically for patients' physical, emotional and psychosocial well-being.
Impactful and innovative in transforming community care, we were the first recipient of the President's Award for Social Impact (2012), and the first community hospital to receive the National Healthcare Innovation and Productivity Medal (National University Hospital - St Luke's Hospital Integrated Care Path, 2016). We topped the Community Hospital Patient Experience Survey in 2018.
