During a briefing with St. Luke’s executives, medical staff and associates, JCI lead surveyor Dr. Enrico Baldantoni announced that ìSt. Lukeís-Quezon City is officially accredited,î after receiving notification from the JCI central office in Chicago, Illinois. SLMC-QC also has the distinction of being the first hospital in the Philippines and the second in Asia to be awarded JCI accreditation in 2003. (PNA photo courtesy of SLMC-QC)
