Davao medical Center (DMC) is now Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC)c
Indeed, DMC is expanding and improving far more to cater to all individuals in Mindanao, not merely in Davao City.
From a 600-bed capability, the Southern Philippines Medical Center has now already a 1,200-bed ability as mandated by law. Since there’s an raise in the number of bed ability and change in physical structure, there will also be an increase in the hospital personnel too as their salaries that could take effect in July this year. But each adjustments will take place in a gradual manner, I was told.
Simply because of these alterations, the SPMC is considered as the largest federal government hospital in Mindanao with the greatest bed ability. But Dr. Bong Vega stated the Philippine General Hospital in Manila has a 1,500-bed capacity correct now. In Tagum City, the Davao Regional Hospital in Apokon has only a 400-bed ability, he explained.
According to assistant secretary of wellbeing Dr. Paulyn Jean Rosell-Ubial, SPMC will not merely present wellbeing solutions to its locality but also to provide research and trainings to all physicians. Foreign physicians can also have their training at SPMC as part of the medical tourism program and where they can also share their well being expertise and knowledge to other local doctors.
Dr. Ubial stated SPMC is an institution that will lead the method to health care. She quoted DOH secretary Dr. Esperanza Cabral in saying that the biggest room from the world is the room for improvement. Thus, Ubial told the SPMC personnel who attended the meeting to “let’s continue to enhance ourselves…let’s retain on dreaming and we can attain our objective.”
Meanwhile, DOH 11 regional director Dr. Teogenes Flores Baluma encouraged all of the federal government hospital personnel to be the center of excellence, responsiveness and efficiency to ensure that all of the other DOH federal government hospitals will look at SPMC as a great example. “Live with your vision by giving exceptional solutions according to your highest capability,” he mentioned.
Dr. Vega claimed the formal launching with the new name of their hospital will be carried out during the hospital week which is in August this year.
To Dr. Bong Vega and the rest in the personnel of SPMC, my warm congratulations to all of you. Keep up the very good work!
