Ren Ci Hospital
Ren Ci, when translated in Chinese, stands for “compassion” or “benevolence”. Established since 1994, Ren Ci Hospital is one of the few charity healthcare institutions in Singapore to provide affordable medical, nursing and rehabilitative care services for the community. Serving all regardless of background, race and religion, the interdisciplinary care team delivers quality service based on the principles of loving kindness and compassion.
Most of the long-staying residents in our nursing homes come from low income families, while some are destitute. Suffering from multiple chronic medical conditions, their long-term healthcare needs have been draining them financially. While majority of the patients are either wheelchair bound or bedridden, they still long to return to their loved ones someday.
Besides catering to the long term healthcare needs of disadvantaged patients, Ren Ci also provide rehabilitative care to post-acute patients in a community hospital setting so that they can regain their functional abilities and return back to the community.
As a charity healthcare organisation, Ren Ci relies heavily on public’s donation and support as well as government’s subvention. Various fundraising events are held every year to help Ren Ci raise the much needed funds for our patients. During each of these events, our stakeholders, including our volunteers, donors, supporters, staff, board members and even our benefactors and their family members, will unfailingly come together as one united family to play their part and contribute towards a common goal: to bring a ray of hope to our less fortunate patients.
With the rapidly ageing population in Singapore, Ren Ci will continue to play an integral role in supporting the healthcare needs of the senior community. Besides giving hope to the frail seniors by helping overcome their disabilities and teaching their families to care for them at home, Ren Ci also partners various community groups and social enterprises to give dignity back to the seniors.
