Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC) continues to show that it cares not just for its patients, but also the people who devote their time and service to the institution, its patients and communities through its brand-new Doctors’ Walk of Fame. The Doctors’ Walk of Fame was unveiled to the public in a ceremony held last July 1, Friday.
“We are very excited to introduce the new Doctors’ Walk of Fame,” said CSMC President and CEO Raul C. Pagdanganan. “We wanted to honor the doctors and medical professionals who shaped the legacy of the hospital and paved the way for generations of Caring Cardinal Leaders. This, we believe, gives them the recognition they deserve.”
The Doctors’ Walk of Fame pays tribute to the individuals who have contributed significantly to medical advancements not just within the hospital, but also in the Philippines. Inductees include Past Medical Directors, Founding Chairmen and Cardinal Sin Teacher-Healer awardees. Stars bearing their names can be found at the hospital’s main walkway.
CSMC is known for its world-class quality of patient care, but the institution also consistently takes care of its employees. Just recently, CSMC launched its Nursing Career Development Programs with US-based ADEX Medical Staffing and Netherlands-based OTTO Workforce to help its nurses become globally competitive professionals. CSMC also celebrates its very own People Awards, an annual awards ceremony where the contributions and loyalty of its best employees are recognized.
However, the Doctors’ Walk of Fame is not just a way to honor the pioneers and Caring Cardinal pillars of the past. The hospital also hopes that it will serve as an inspiration to future generations of medical professionals.
“Medical practice is a serious and difficult undertaking, but through efforts such as this, CSMC is able to impart to its people the values of hard work and striving for excellence,” said Pagdanganan. “We are truly grateful for all the doctors and professionals who serve our hospital and provide our patients with the highest quality of medical care.”
“As for our younger Caring Cardinal Leaders, we hope that this new Doctors’ Walk of Fame becomes an inspiration for you to dream big, aim high and achieve more here at CSMC,” he added.
