Navotas City Hospital snags award for good governance


The Navotas City Hospital (NCH) has been recognized by the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) for its efforts to promote good governance.

NCH Director Dr. Christia Padolina received the Silver Trailblazer Award following the public revalida for the Compliance Stage in ISA’s Performance Governance System (PGS).

“This award reflects our continued efforts to improve our services, especially in the health sector. We will remain steadfast in our commitment to give our best as we promote the welfare and wellbeing of every Navoteño,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

Since its initiation in November 2017, the NCH instituted policy reforms and realignment of resources to realize its strategic position of being “a pioneer in community-linked secondary healthcare in CAMANAVA (Caloocan-Malabon-Navotas-Valenzuela).”

Among the changes that NCH implemented was the creation of the Office of Strategic Management (OSM) and Multi-Sector Governance Council (MSGC).

The OSM monitors the progress of NCH units in achieving their respective strategic goals. The MSGC, on the other hand, helps formulate new programs such as #NotoSolo, #GamotMoSagotKo and #JuanCard to further serve the needs of Navoteños.
