PASIG CITY, OCTOBER 30, 2023 – Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) celebrates the success of Project Nightingale, an initiative by its healthcare company, Metro Pacific Health (MPH). This recently concluded event aimed to empower Filipino nursing students and current nurses in the country. This three-part event took place during National Nurses Week, commemorating the outstanding achievements of Filipino nurses and their unwavering commitment to embodying the Heart of Filipino Healthcare.

The highlight of this celebration was the inaugural ‘Soledad Velez-Pangilinan: The MPH Nursing Excellence Awards,’ an event designed to recognize and honor outstanding nurses. This prestigious award is named after the esteemed Mrs. Soledad Velez-Pangilinan, mother of MPH Chairman Manny Velez Pangilinan, who was a devoted advocate of the Philippine healthcare system and a proponent of patient and family-centered care.

Borromeo, Chief Nursing Officer of Metro Pacific Health, stated, “We are thrilled to have introduced the ‘Soledad Velez-Pangilinan: The MPH Nursing Excellence Awards,’ a homage to Mrs. Soledad Velez-Pangilinan’s enduring legacy in championing patient and family-centered care in the Philippines. We wish to express our deep gratitude not only to the winners today but truly and sincerely, to all nurses around the Philippines for their unwavering commitment. Here at MPH, we definitely plan to continue this program in the coming years to sustain our full support for our local nurses.”

The award, which recognizes outstanding nurses in three categories: Excellence in Clinical Nursing, Excellence in Nursing Leadership, and Excellence in Nurse Education, garnered significant attention. Among the 47 nominees from 18 MPH hospitals, 15 exceptional finalists were identified for the finals. A distinguished panel of renowned nursing and health leaders served as the jury to select the winners in each category.

Manuel V.
