MANILA, Philippines, 31 st July 2019 – Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings Inc. (MPHHI) will conduct its first-ever, one-day only Job Fair Caravan with nine of its partner hospitals at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3 in Mandaluyong, 10:00AM-7:00PM to hire nurses, allied health care professionals, and other medical-related professionals right on site.
Being the largest private hospital chain in the Philippines with a collective portfolio of fourteen (14) top-notch hospitals, eight (8) clinics, and unparalleled service, Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings Inc. (MPHHI) thrusts to provide quality medical healthcare to Filipinos as well as create an engaged group of healthcare professionals aimed to deliver a genuine experience through a culture of caring, quality and excellence. As one of its main goals for this year, the hospital group aims to directly address both the unemployment and underemployment situation of several medical-related course graduates and medical practitioners in the country.
As it is known, the Philippine hospital industry is still in dire need of competent and dedicated individuals who are willing to serve and save the lives of people when they need it most. Even though an excessive number of graduates of medical-related
courses have flooded the employment pool, there is a definite scarcity of practicing health professionals, doctors, nurses, midwives, etc. in the Philippines.
In addition, several medical professionals continuously search for greener pastures by finding employment overseas instead of the Philippines. In recent years, the group has seen common concerns and issues on the continuous migration of nurses and healthcare professionals, as well as the more aggressive talent acquisition strategies and tactics of local hospitals and recruitment agencies. By the same token, the perceived lack of viable employment opportunities hinders these educated individuals from finding jobs that allow them to practice their professions in hospitals, leading them to fulfill careers in other fields.
To address this existing unemployment problem, MPHHI aims to not only showcase and ideally fill up the vacancies in their operations, but also exhibit the existing and expanding network of hospitals under its umbrella – an objective that highlights the group as a stable community of companies where these fresh graduates and professionals can build their career with competitive advantage.
Through this effort by the MPHHI Hospital Group, interested applicants are given the opportunity to directly apply to a pre-selected, industry-specific selection of jobs in strategically located hospitals and clinics throughout Metro Manila and the Philippines. The first-ever MPHHI Job Fair Caravan is providing a streamlined venue that allows them to see the various options they have for hospital employment within the country.
“We take pride in the fact that MPHHI is committed not only to transforming hospitals by investing in the best equipment, improving infrastructure and delivering world-class health service to Filipinos nationwide but also by making our hospitals, employers of choice by nurses and other medical practitioners. A number of our hospitals have received several awards for being the best employers in the industry.” says MPIC Human Resources Head Loudette Anne M. Zoilo. “We aim to reach out to all medical
practitioners and provide them the chance to be part of our hospital group, delivering quality of service while taking advantage of the synergies of our group operation.”
The participating hospitals under MPHHI are as follows: Makati Medical Center, Central Luzon Doctors’ Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Asian Hospital and Medical Center, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Marikina Valley Medical Center, Sacred Heart Hospital, St. Elizabeth Hospital, and Mega Clinic.
Interested applicants are expected to bring with them copies of their updated resumés, as well as any other supporting documents that they deem necessary for job application. It is also expected of them to be prepared for face-to-face interviews and possible examinations. Job offers will be given right on the spot.
