The Department of Anaesthesia in celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and in collaboration with the Season of giving made love possible through our gift giving activity.
This month was not just “business as usual” of catering to our patients in the operating room for safe surgical passage, but also connecting as a family.
We remembered the child Jesus who was born in a manger with nothing but love and as a tribute we thought of sharing our blessings by giving back to orphaned children in the DSWD Pampanga.
The event, which was headed, by Dr Vladimir Untalan and Dr Angelo Miguel Realina paved a way for a great bonding activity among consultant and resident staff in the department.
