Who We Are

VISION OF A BETTER WORLD

who-we-are

Who We Are

A world where everyone has equal access to quality healthcare, where poverty is not a hindrance to medical education, and where the public constantly supports charitable, educational, social welfare, and health research programs.

Our mission is to:

  • Allow greater access to excellent healthcare and information to low-income families;
  • Create equal opportunities for bright but underprivileged students to enter medical school;
  • Award grants that will allow Filipino doctors to update and upgrade their knowledge through training and fellowships here and abroad;
  • Provide funding for medical research that seek to understand and address illnesses prevalent in the country.

Our work carries on the long tradition of St. Luke’s Medical Center in caring for the poor. Unknown to many, St Luke’s started in 1903 as a small clinic in Tondo, Manila providing free medical services to indigent people in the community.

St. Luke’s Medical Center is a non-stock, non-profit and non-sectarian medical institution. Although it has become one of the largest private hospitals in the country, it has stayed close to its roots. Over the years, it has silently continued this mission of providing the poor access to private medical care. It has also expanded this mission to include medical scholarships, continuing medical education support, and research funding.

The St. Luke’s Medical Center Foundation, Inc. was established to enable more people to benefit from this.
