De Los Santos Medical Center
Founded in 1949 by Dr. Jose V. de Los Santos Sr., known as the father of Philippine Orthopedics, the De Los Santos Clinic has planted its roots in health care through years of treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from bone anomalies. Dr. JV de Los Santos was complimented by a staff of about 20, and facilitated by an operating room, x-ray, laboratory, pharmacy and 30 beds. The clinic has become a landmark in the Espana, Quezon City area when the de Los Santos’ mission of giving medical attention to more people led to the expansion of the clinic in 1973 into the De Los Santos General Hospital. The hospital was capable of accommodating 150-bedridden patients in Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Medicine and Surgery. The hospital diversified into education and training by opening a school of Nursing & Midwifery in 1975 and became a medical training institution in 1985, both of which have graduated notable professionals in the health care field today. The growth of the institution was continuous due to its dynamic leadership spearheaded by the enterprising wife of Dr. JV, Pacita Villanueva, and its highly qualified medical staff. Today, the company is a medical center offering complete medical service and further expands through constant investment in its facilities and people. Despite its significant growth, the de Los Santos’ never lost sight of their pursuit to reach out to more Filipinos and to contribute to the development of health care. The hospital board is still chaired by the couple who made the hospital possible. It is now managed however, by their children, Dr. Jose V. de Los Santos, Jr. as President and Dr. Efren V. de Los Santos as Medical Director, and, their grandchild Mr. Ronaldo H. de Los Santos as Administrator. In line with the family’s goals, they created subsidiary companies, Applied Diagnostic Ultrasound Inc., Hearth Care Diagnostics Inc., and DLSMC Diagnostic Imaging Corp., all of which were formed to venture in the operation of the most sophisticated diagnostic equipment’s; the opening of a school of Physical Therapy in 1994 which yielded some top-notchers in the board exams; and the setting-up of the Dr. Jose V. de Los Santos, Sr. Foundation for medical research and medical service to indigent patients in 1995. Today, DELOMED is still progressing and always will as it strives for betterment in health care.
