PROJECT LOVE: Livingstone Health Spends a Day at HCA Hospice Care with Patients and Staff
The executive management team consisting of Dr Sebastian Chua, Dr Rachel Lim, Dr Wilson Tay, Dax Ng, and staff from every practice under the Livingstone Health group took part in its very first community service event at HCA Hospice Care.
In January 2020, the doctors and staff of Livingstone Health spent a day interacting with the patients and staff of HCA Hospice Care at Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital in Serangoon. HCA Hospice Care is Singapore’s largest home hospice care provider that provides palliative care and palliative care training, giving comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses.
Following an internal reorganisation and rebranding over the new year, Livingstone has added Livingstone Cardiology, its Cardiology practice, and Phoenix Medical Group to lead its Family Medicine practice. To date, the multi-disciplinary healthcare provider has five medicine disciplines under its name with an extensive footprint all over Singapore.
In the spirit of the Chinese New Year festive period, the Livingstone team and HCA Hospice Care patients handcrafted lanterns with red packets and sang Chinese New Year songs, led by Dr Sebastian Chua, Chief Medical Officer, Mr Dax Ng, Chief Business Officer, and the doctors of Phoenix Medical Group. To commemorate the fun-filled day, staff of Livingstone gave out goodie bags containing daily essentials to each patient. Dr Wilson Tay, Chief Executive Officer of Livingstone, presented a cheque of S$5,000 to Ms Mel Basuki, Fundraising Manager of HCA Hospice Care.
The executive management team then hosted a Chinese New Year lunch for the Livingstone team as a thank-you for their hard work and commitment over the past year.
Dr Tay said: “Livingstone Health would like to thank HCA Hospice Care for giving us the opportunity to get a better understanding of how the hospice operates, as well as the challenges that Singaporeans with life-limiting illnesses face. We are honoured to have been able to celebrate with the residents here during this festive period.”
