IN pursuit of a fully- functional Integrated Hospital Management and Information System (IHOMIS) as recommended by the Department of Health (DOH), Mayor Honey Lacuna received in behalf of the Sta. Ana Hospital (SAH), computer workstations and dedicated server worth P2.7 million.
Lacuna was joined by SAH Director Dr. Grace Padilla in thanking the La Filipina Uy Gongco Corporation (LFUGC) under the leadership of its Cluster Head for Livestocks Gerald Jone Uy Gongco for their ‘generous and invaluable donation to the City of Manila’ which, according to the mayor, is vital to the project that is of paramount importance to the city’s healthcare system.
The mayor acknowledged the help of the private sector in keeping the city-run hospitals afloat, citing a report from Director Padilla regarding the help that the LFUGCL had been extending even during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She also expressed gratitude to Lacuna for her unwavering leadership and support in realizing the vision.
“It is through her inspiration, dedication and commitment that Sta. Ana Hospital continuously strives for health excellence for a Magnificent Manila,” she said.
“La Filipina Uy Gongco Corporation’s donation is not just a gift of technology, but a gift of hope, progress,and a brighter future for the people of Manila. This generous gesture demonstrates the power of collaboration between the private sector and the local government, and how, together, we can achieve remarkable milestones, Padilla added.
“Today, we gather to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to this act of benevolence as a testament to their commitment to improving our community and the lives of our patients,” Padilla said.
Lacuna said that based on the report of Padilla, the donation will greatly help in the day-to-day operations of the SAH, for a fast and efficient delivery of service among indigent patients.
