THE Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC) unveiled recently its newly renovated hospital lobby.
The renovated lobby, thoughtfully designed to create a wider and more comfortable space for all its patients, is part of CSMC’s continuous effort to improve its quality of service and ensure excellent hospital experience for everyone who enters its doors.
“The new lobby that we see is just the start of more renovations in our facilities and upgrade in our medical equipment,” CSMC President and CEO Raul Pagdanganan said. “This development reaffirms our commitment to the community and the patients we serve,” he said.
The new lobby now houses a memorial plaque for Cardinal Rufino Santos, whose legacy of compassionate service serves as the foundation of the hospital.
During the program, CSMC also unveiled its enhanced Vision, Mission, and Values wall which carries the hospital’s core principles, and a newly installed tribute marker that CSMC dedicates to its healthcare workers in recognition of their sacrifices during the pandemic.
“Through this simple remembrance and dedication, with hearts ignited by passion and purpose, we remember who we are, where we came from, and what our true destiny is as Caring Cardinal Leaders- a ray of hope, a lifesaver, an exemplar of excellence, always in the service of others,” CSMC VP and Head of Human Resources Maria Louzel Diaz-Tiozon said.
To round up the event, CSMC welcomed members of the Singing Cardinals to celebrate the premiere of the new CSMC Hymn video, which was published just in time for Saturday’s Independence Day celebration.
Joining Pagdanganan in leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony were CSMC SVP and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Zenaida Javier-Uy, and Chief Financial Officer Marivic Mabuti. The event, hosted by CSMC VP and Head of Business Planning and Development Division Dr. Marichu Catan, was also graced by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila Oeconomus Rev. Fr. Cesar Buhat, CSMC Chaplain Fr. Jun Abogado, Metro Pacific Hospitals Group Chief Operating Officer Dr. Jeffrey Staples, and other members of the CSMC Management Committee.
