Reflecting on our Past, Preparing for our Future!
Since 1983, IACM (International AIDS Candlelight Memorial) is considered as the largest and one of the oldest grassroots movement for HIV, commemorated every 3rd week of May, with the following objectives:
a. To remember those who have died of AIDS related illnesses;
b. To show support to people living with HIV (PLHIVs); and
c. To recognize the importance of multi-sectoral intervention for strategic program implementation.
Bataan General Hospital (BGH) held its series of strategy cascading through the annual teambuilding activity last May 22-23, June 1-2 and June 7-8, 2018 at Fontana Resort and Country Club, Clark Freeport, Angeles, Pampanga. The activity aimed to cascade the strategy map and vetted outputs each department and section heads have committed through the hospital’s new undertaking towards institutionalizing a Performance Governance System (PGS).

A remarkable achievement becomes more valuable as it is shared with all others, Dr. Glory V. Baltazar exemplified this as she presented the PGS Plaque of Recognition to the MSGC Officers and members in appreciation of their commitment as external champions and partners of BGH.
PERPORMANCE GOVERNANCE SYSTEM, A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY , “A SHARED RECOGNITION”
“Making governance a shared responsibility” becomes a new battle cry as the Department of Health enjoins government hospital to adopt the Performance Governance System ...“ Challenge Accepted” was the bold response of the Bataan General Hospital.
Our journey towards provision of effective and affordable medical care and support has taken us to conquer the hardships of institutionalizing an international standard for a quality management system (QMS), which in our case, an ISO certification for 9001:2008 in 2014 and its updated 2015 version in 2018. With our fervent desire to become the leading multi-specialty medical center in Central Luzon by 2022, we wish to continue to move forward to deliver excellent healthcare service by continually improving our system processes and now BGH has moved to adopt a Performance Governance System (PGS).
