St Luke’s Hospital is a community
hospital which provides professional
medical, nursing and rehabilitative
care for the needy elderly, regardless
of race or religion. It started as an
idea from the Graduates’ Christian
Fellowship and the Singapore Nurses’
Christian Fellowship in response to
the issues raised by a 1988 report of
the Advisory Council on the Aged. This
small group of Christian nurses and
doctors had a vision of setting up a
haven for the elderly sick to experience
quality care and compassionate service.
In July 1989, the Graduates’ Christian
Fellowship, Christian Medical and Dental
Fellowship and Nurses’ Christian
Fellowship formed a study group to examine
the feasibility of setting up a home
for the elderly sick. After two and
a half years of study and discussion
with various people and authorities,
St Luke’s Home for the Elderly
Sick was registered and gazetted with
seven Foundation Members.
Through countless deliberations and
consultations, the vision of a hospital
which would provide a level of medical
service much higher than was currently
available, in other nursing homes, emerged.
At the first Annual General Meeting
on 8 May 1992, the name was changed
to St Luke’s Hospital for the
Elderly and the eighth Foundation Member
joined. As the vision and passion of
the foundation members spread, their
ideals finally became a reality with
the completion of the hospital building
in March 1996.
As a voluntary welfare organization,
St Luke’s Hospital is supported
by funds from the Ministry of Health,
Christian organizations and public donations.
These funds help needy patients cover
most of their medical treatment and
