L.E.A.P. – the acronym for Lead, Enable, Assist and Protect. LEAP is a powerful word that encapsulates the brand that propels the leadership and general membership of the Philippine Hospital Association (PHA) as it navigates the wide universe of healthcare.
The PHA is a 70-year old organization of healthcare providers from the government and private sectors in the 7,107 islands of the Philippines. It is composed of nearly 2,000 hospitals. A not for profit and non-stock entity, its views and voices are much sought after and enjoy the recognition of the various agencies of the government as well as the lawmaking bodies of the land from both the Congress and the Senate.
At the moment, in its Platinum Year, I sit as the organization’s 13th President. Certainly, it gives me much pride to be part of the important page in the history book of the organization.
