Dendrobium SGH

The orchid Dendrobium SGH is cultivated to mark SGH’s 185th birthday. Dendrobium SGH symbolizes the Hospital’s status as a distinct regional centre of excellence committed to uphold its slogan of "A Tradition of Caring and Excellence".

This magnificient orchid is a hybrid of two award-winning orchids - Hawaiian Dendrobium Akemi and Dendrobium Palolo Sunshine. It is a robust plant with several pseudobulbs and a long upright inflorescence.

The well-arranged free flowering golden blooms with a flush of pink represent the social mission and humanitarian legacy that has been the driving force behind SGH’s efforts and achievements in Service, Education and Research – the three pillars of the Hospital’s mission.
