The Batangas Medical Center celebrated this year’s National Hospital Week on August 5-9, 2019. It was a fully-loaded week, concluded by the roaring success of the Mr. & Ms. Batangas Medical Center pageant.
The week commenced with the employees gathering at the Flag Ceremony on August 5 to witness the launch of the environment-friendly projects spearheaded by the Socials, Sports, Health & Wellness Committee like the Bike-to-Work Project and the Plastic Goes to Scrap-Everyday is Tumbler Day. A tree-planting activity was supposed to be included in the day’s activity but due to heavy rains, it was scheduled for another day.
The Bike-to-Work project is in support of the Physical and Mental Illness Program, where able employees would go to work using their bicycles on Fridays. It also aims to support the Clean Air Act by minimizing the use of fuel thereby lessening the harmful pollutants affecting the environment. This program will also help promote and maintain a healthy lifestyle among the employees which can result to a positive work productivity.
