2 Quezon City hospitals recognized as best in PH
Quezon City’s Novaliches District Hospital (NDH) and Quezon City General Hospital (QCGH) were recognized as two of the most outstanding hospitals in the country, according to the Philippine Hospitals Association (PHA).
In a ceremony held at the Manila Hotel last Wednesday, November 20, the PHA said the two local government-operated hospitals are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the field of best practices for excellence in healthcare.
After having satisfied the criteria set forth by the PHA for this year’s annual recognition, the NDH was conferred as the Most Outstanding Level 1 Government Hospital while the QCGH was recognized as one of the Outstanding Level 3 Government Hospitals in the country, joining other DOH-owned hospitals.
QC is the only LGU which brought home two awards from this year's ceremony.
With the honor brought by the award comes the greater responsibility and challenge to further improve its services for the benefit of QC residents, NDH director Dr. Eduardo Aldana said of their achievement.
"NDH is moving towards institutionalizing more programs, projects, policies and activities towards fostering and strengthening a culture of patient safety, positive patient experience, and organizational performance.” Dr. Aldana said.
QCGH director Dr. Josephine Sabando for her part said it had been their hospital’s goal to be on par with other excellent medical centers in the country.
"We have fulfilled QCGH’s vision to become one of the best local government hospitals in the Philippines. This serves as an inspiration to us to sustain our programs and develop more quality services for our patients because this recognition is based on excellence in the field of training, service, research and good governance,” Dr. Sabando said.
NDH and QCGH were also recipients of the Outstanding Government Hospitals award in their respective levels.
Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital (QCRMBGH) in Brgy. Batasan Hills is QC’s third and newest city-operated hospital. QCRMBGH, which was opened in 2018, is a Level 2 accredited hospital by the Department of Health.
