- Social Responsibility
We contribute positively to the well-being of the community.
We established the Health Promotion & Preventive Care (HPPC) division that focuses on caring for people in the pre-illness segment of the healthcare continuum. Its objective is to promote a healthy lifestyle and prevent disease through health education. We hope to achieve this objective by offering health-screening services and targeted post-screening programmes for those found to have health issues and significant risk factors.
The NHGP logo imparts our vision and service values.
The logo portrays an individual springing forward into a future filled with healthy years and a good quality of life. In tow of the individual are the members of his/her family, which conceptually can be extended to the community, moving forward to a future of health and happiness. This enshrines the core business of NHGP, which is in family and community healthcare, encompassing a major element of preventive healthcare to help individuals achieve and maintain good health.
They emerge from a glowing sun, symbolised by a rich orange eclipse, typifying energy and strength, to support their move forward into the blue sky and towards a good state of health.
This at the same time endorses corporate branding, through the corporate colours of National Healthcare Group.
