PRC inks MOA with Big Hospitals

For fast and easy renewal of PRC ID cards and verification and authentication of PRC records, the Professional Regulation Commission forged a partnership agreement with three well known hospitals in Metro Manila.

The newly built St. Luke Medical Center-Global City, the Chinese General Hospital and the Cardinal Santos Medical Center-Colinas Verdes Hospital signed the agreement.

Chairman Nicolas P. Lapeña Jr. led the formal signing ceremony during the PRC 37th anniversary on June 18. Commissioners Nilo L. Rosas and Antonio S. Adriano together with the top officials of the hospitals witnessed the event.

The agreement embodies the strong commitment of the PRC to promote good governance as a catalyst for service excellence as it ensures the public of the competence and social responsibility of medical and health allied professionals working in the hospital.

A few years back, Makati Medical Center, Medical City and St. Lukes Medical Center in Quezon City signed the same pact with the Commission.

More and more hospitals are getting interested to join the partnership as it mutually benefits the parties.

“We are honored that the management of these hospitals, particularly Dr. James Dy of Chinese Genral Hospital, Mr. Jose Ledesma of St Lukes Global City and Ms. Corazon Consunji of Cardinal Santos is helping the government promote our good governance initiatives. We are doing this in our efforts to protect the public and see to it that the people who take care of their health and wellness are really competent and truly professionals.” Chairman Lapeña said.

“We are also glad that in our simple way, the fees collected from the transactions increased in numbers while we are able to help the students from these hospitals regularly get updates on PRC examination policies.” The Chairman added.

The MOA addresses the difficulties of doctors, nurses and other health professionals employed in the hospitals in going to PRC to update their professional IDs and records. Thus, even at work, their documentation requirements are attended through batch filing.
