25th Founding Anniversary Message
By Congressman Jerry P. Treñas
For 25 years, the West Visayas State University Medical Center has distinguished itself as one of the premier medical institutions in the entire Western Visayas Region. It is therefore with great pleasure that I join the Medical Center in celebrating its 25th founding anniversary.
The efforts of the Medical Center to provide quality health care and medical services to its countless of patients are a testament to the hard-work, ingenuity, and unparalleled dedication to duty of the men and women of the hospital. The visionary programs and initiatives of the Medical Center allow numerous patients hailing from all over Region VI to benefit from the superior medical services which your hospital provides. Under the inspired leadership of Hospital Director Dr. Ramon Guerra, your outstanding medical staff delivers excellent health care and treatment which is at par with the best medical institutions in the country.
The theme of the 25th anniversary of the Medical Center is “UMC at 25 years: Soaring High Beyond Expectations.” I am glad that your hospital continues to aspire beyond the heights in order to deliver medical services beyond what is expected from the Medical Center. It is extremely important to aim high in order to reap success. Mediocrity in any profession is unacceptable, and your hospital’s dedication to excellence is a sign of your medical staff’s commitment to serve the people of Western Visayas and Iloilo City. I am also pleased to note that the men and women of the Medical Center are fully committed to the vision of your hospital, which is to create a “world class healthcare institution geared towards service, training and research.”
The medical profession is integral in modern day human societies. Doctors, nurses and the medical staff of hospitals ensure the health and survival of our citizens. Your profession is literally devoted to save lives. I am therefore grateful for the professionalism and commitment of the men and women of your Medical Center to cure the sick, treat the wounded, and save the dying. The staff members of the West Visayas State University Medical Center are heroes in their own right. May you all continue to serve our people with utmost zeal and dedication.
