Celebrating VRP Medical Center’s 47th Founding Anniversary for a Cause
VRPMC celebrated its 47th Anniversary with a 40-strong team of physicians, residents, nurses, and admin staff who went off on Sunday, February 16, 2020, for a medical mission in Talisay, Batangas.
The medical team served in two evacuation centers in Barangay Aya with 991 evacuees of 273 families from Barangay Pulo in Taal who were directly devastated by the Taal Volcano eruption. VRPMC provided the evacuees with free medical consultations, medicines, vitamins, personal hygiene stuff, toiletries, baby diapers, slippers, underwear, and bags of goodies.
One of the evacuees expressed his gratitude for the free pediatric consultation for his 4-year-old son who had a cough. He said that they have received relief goods from different groups but it was the first medical mission in their evacuation center.
This Corporate Social Responsibility initiative is headed by the VRP Medical Staff Organization and VRPMC Management in cooperation with the Local Government particularly in Barangay Aya, Talisay Batangas. This CSR forms part of VRPMC’s collaboration with Mount Grace Hospitals, Inc. in reaching out to the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.
This project for a cause was held in lieu of the traditional celebration of VRPMC’s founding anniversary via a night of fellowship with VRP Physicians and HMO partners.
