As the leading healthcare institution in Mindanao, the core value that our caring provides goes beyond physical wellbeing of our patients. It extends to a more profound human need—life itself! That is, the life of our patients.
When we talk about life, it is always in reference not only to health but also to the environment. As such, we strive to be responsible stewards of Mother Earth, taking into consideration our ecological footprint.
We take ample care in assessing our impact and engineering our ways of doing things (systems and processes) according to what is socially and environmentally responsible. We invest in state-of-the-art facilities to ensure the efficiency and efficacy of our waste management system. We have a sewage treatment plant (STP) and adhere to waste disposal and management protocols set by the Department of Health and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
We understand that efforts at environmental protection and conservation do not bear fruit overnight. It has to be carefully deliberated in view of the future. Our concern for the environment reflects in our long-range planning.
With our thrust for energy conservation, all lighting fixtures are being replaced with energy-saving lamps, cutting down energy consumption on light by almost 50%. We are currently re-designing our facility to provide optimal utilization of our limited land space. This is to address the fast growing traffic of patients and guests at DDH. Our newly opened 4-storey steel parking complex, the first of its kind in Mindanao, is but a testament to our firm commitment to make a difference in improving the quality of life not only of our patients but the whole city of Davao!
Furthermore, our blueprints for expansion are geared towards a “green infrastructure” that optimizes energy and water resources, thereby reducing consumption, wastage and pollution.
At the core, we desire to uplift life itself. We pride ourselves in providing care that enables our customers to live life to the fullest through a lifelong partnership with our organization, because here at Davao Doctors Hospital, We Care for Life!
