Bataan St. Joseph Hospital & Medical Center revolutionises Philippine healthcare with groundbreaking Cath Lab acquisition

The state-of-the-art technology represents a huge milestone in the treatment of cardiac diseases and vascular anomalies.

Marking its golden year, the Philippines’ Bataan St. Joseph Hospital & Medical Center (BSJHMC) has continuously proven to be at the forefront of service innovation, making significant strides in healthcare for the people of Bataan and nearby provinces.

Amongst its most highlighted innovations is its recent acquisition of the VCON Cath Lab, which features AI technology. The introduction of such technology marks an important achievement in Philippine healthcare, with the technology being the first of its kind in the entire Philippines.

The inauguration of this technology became such a momentous event that it was graced by the presence of Department of Health Secretary Teodoro Herbosa, who emphasised that the VCON Cath Lab not only enhances the treatment of cardiac diseases but also presents new possibilities in addressing various vascular, oncologic, and neurological anomalies.

“The introduction of the VCON Cathlab with Artificial Intelligence at BSJHMC demonstrates a commitment to not only embracing advancements in healthcare but also leading the way in pioneering new technologies for the benefit of patients. By investing in such cutting-edge equipment, the hospital has positioned itself as a leader in providing superior care and innovative solutions for complex medical conditions,” the company said.

BSJHMC’s continuous efforts to introduce groundbreaking innovations showcase its commitment to setting new standards of excellence in healthcare. As such, the Healthcare Asia Awards 2024 has recognised it as the winner of the Smart Hospital Initiative of the Year - Philippines category.

“This [win] stands as a testament to our dedication to service innovation and our commitment in revolutionising patient care in the country, even in the entire Asia,” the medical centre said.

The prestigious awards programme recognises exceptional healthcare providers that have redefined the standards of healthcare through their enduring dedication to innovation, setting of new industry benchmarks, and substantial contributions to their communities.
