current competition. An increase of 20% in patient admission is targeted under the
proposed strategic plan of the hospital.

to skills, experience and qualification of employees starting with recruitment and in its
subsequent hiring. Founders may give simple verbal recommendation but undue influence is
strictly prohibited, with continuous training and seminars, and a working environment that
encourages employees’ loyalty, there will be an increase of employee efficiency and
productivity. Employee’s confidence and professional capabilities are maximized when
management sets the example of trust, honesty and integrity in its corporate culture. When

practitioner such will redound to patient loyalty and income for the hospital.

hospital discounts for them and their legal spouse and children below 18 years of age, stock
options, team building, seminars, training, sports festival and Christmas party held annually.
An employee that is happy is both productive and loyal to the corporation.

to clients. This activity can coincide with the DOH calendar of activities such as Cancer
Prevention Month, where the hospital can offer packages related thereto.

are unable to pay, the Credit and Collection Department shall refer them to the social
worker that will facilitate referral of the patient to PCSO or other foundation who are
