The City Government of Manila headed by Mayor Francisco Isko Moreno Domagoso and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan finally recognizes Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital’s ISO 9001:2008 & 9001:2015 Certification from TÜV SÜD on August 20, 2019 at the Bulwagang Antonio Villegas, Manila City Hall.
Through the support, donations, and assistance by different surrounding barangays and NGOs, most especially the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. and the Rotary Club of Chinatown Manila, and the internationally-acclaimed World Medical Relief, JJASGH was first awarded with ISO 9001:2008 Certification on July 8, 2016 and has successfully transitioned to the latest version ISO 9001:2015 last August 8, 2018. An ISO Certified institution means it follows international standards, procedures, and service quality.
OIC-Hospital Director Dr. Merle Sacdalan-Faustino on her speech, told the story of our tough journey towards this achievement. She recalled that once, it was only a dream, but with the help of so many kind people, we are now celebrating its success.
VM Lacuna, who was tasked by Mayor Isko to supervise the operations of the six district hospitals, asked the doctors, nurses, and staff to continue providing world-class and reliable medical and healthcare services.
Mayor Isko for his part, thanked everyone who have extended their help to JJASGH in achieving this success and once again pleaded for everyone’s cooperation. He also quoted Albert Einstein’s words, “EXCEL TODAY, AND TOMORROW WILL BE DIFFERENT”.
It was indeed a fulfilling and rewarding conferment ceremony for Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital and all those who were present. We pledge to always continue providing quality healthcare and medical services compliant to international standards.
