Recognition for Mastery in Quality Management

PHILIPPINE HEART CENTER

The Philippine Heart Center (PHC) is a Level 3 GOCC Specialty Hospital accredited by the DOH and other regulatory agencies. It is seated in a 2.7 hectare lot at the corner of East Avenue and Matalino Street, Diliman, Quezon City, proximate to other Specialty hospitals. PHC was established through Presidential Decree No. 673 (Annex B-PD 673 Creation of PHC) as the Philippine Heart Center for Asia and inaugurated on February 14, 1975. 
 
Driven by its core values, our mission is attained in four tracks: (1) Excellence in Cardiovascular care in tune with current trends of diagnosis and management; (2) Advocacy on prevention and wellness to decrease the risk of dying from heart diseases; (3) Treat more and reach out to underprivileged through satellite regional heart centers; and (4) Excellence in research and cardiovascular training accessible to all. It is on this mandate that the PHC remains. By the words of the First lady Imelda Marcos since PHC conception in 1975, “Be there one Filipino sick and uncared for, our mission is not done.” 
 
As symbolized by its four-heart logo, the Center offers a comprehensive program of patient care, education and training, research, and public information. PHC extends the best and most efficient medical services to its patients by maintaining a pool of well-trained and highly experienced physicians and other medical personnel who utilize some of the latest in technology and procedures in cardiovascular science. 
 
For more than forty years of existence, PHC has stood as a testimony to the commitment to save lives and alleviate thousands who suffer from cardiovascular diseases, a leading cause of death in the Philippines. The Center has brought renewed hope especially to those who could not afford specialized medical care.  It has remained the main cardiac surgical referral center but is doing its best to bring specialized services to the regions through its surgical outreach program. 
 
It is heavily involved in improving its facilities to keep up with world-class healthcare standards, facilities, services and programs and offers a holistic approach in its quality patient care: Non-Invasive and Invasive Cardio-Diagnostic Procedures, Critical Care Management, Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Physical and Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation. PHC continues to expand its capacity and upgrades its human and technological resources to meet the increasing demand for its services and to carry out its mandate that is in consonance with the objectives of the Universal  Healthcare Act.  
 
PHC was recognized and awarded for the clinical and  operational best practices, as  “Gold PGS Trailblazer” by the Institute for Solidarity in Asia and was conferred with the prestigious “Island of Good Governance” Gold Seal during the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2015.  PHC continues to take the role as the prime mover in promoting good governance in healthcare acting as the catalyst in inspiring and guiding a growing number of healthcare institutions in all the regions across the Philippines. 
 
As a premiere healthcare institution, PHC is now ISO QMS 9001:2015 certified and the first and only Philippine government hospital compliant with international healthcare standards on a Diamond Level by the Accreditation Canada International.
