De Los Santos Medical Center (DLSMC) is a 150-bed, Level 3 private tertiary hospital in Quezon City with over 350 active and visiting multi-specialist physicians. The medical institution is the 7th member hospital of Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings, Inc. (MPHHI), under the MVP Group of Companies headed by businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan.
The hospital was founded on September 17, 1949 by Dr. Jose V. de los Santos Sr., known as the Father of Philippine Orthopedics. Together with his wife, Doña Pacita V. de los Santos, they established a 30-bed clinic along E. Rodriguez Sr. Boulevard which specialized in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with bone abnormalities in support of their daughters who were stricken with polio.
On November 17, 1973, the family-owned De Los Santos Clinic expanded into a 150-bed facility known as De Los Santos General Hospital and added specializations including Internal medicine, obstetrics & gynecology, pediatrics, and surgery.
By June 3, 2013, the hospital, now called De Los Santos Medical Center, partnered with Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) and became the 7th hospital under the MPHHI banner.
Under the leadership of its President and CEO Raul C. Pagdanganan, DLSMC underwent several upgrades including structural renovations to the main hospital, and conversion of the adjacent building to a Medical Arts Building with over 50 doctors’ clinics. Alongside the hospital’s physical expansions, specialty centers were introduced for specific diagnostic and therapeutic services such as the Eye Center, Arthritis Center, Memory Center, Dermatology Center, Women’s Care Center, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, Orthopedic Sports Clinic, Wellness Center, and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery Center.
The hospital also performs specialized services in cardiology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, and minimally invasive surgery. It also became the first private, level 3 hospital in Quezon City to offer the PhilHealth Z Benefit Package for kidney transplantation.
In 2018, DLSMC opened its first Catheterization Laboratory Unit offering interventional procedures for cardiology, radiology, neurology, neuroradiology, and nephrology. True to its commitment of providing “Quality but Affordable Healthcare”, DLSMC developed packages that are competitive with other private hospitals, allowing patients accessible and affordable options to various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Together with its structural and service expansion, DLSMC also focuses its efforts on two main growth drivers: Clinical Excellence and Great Patient Experience. The institution continually adds to its roster the best and brightest physicians, nurses, ancillary and administrative staff, as well as adhere to the strictest healthcare and safety standards. Patient feedback is very important and through DLSMC’s Patient Experience Department; input is used to further enhance and improve hospital services not only for the patient, but also their families, and the community.
Throughout the years, DLSMC is dedicated to serve and provide patients with healthcare they deserve – accessible, affordable, and high quality.
