The Starfish Story of the UST Hospital Outreach and Indigency Programs Wins Corporate Social Responsibility of the Year Award From Healthcare Asia


In 2016, in celebration of its 70th anniversary, the USTH launched the Hospital Outreach and Patient Education program, and provided free services in the form of free vaccinations, free diagnostic and ancillary tests and patient health screening for indigent patients of the community. Various lay fora providing patient education were also held. With its success and the growing demand for more programs of the same nature, the USTH  management planned out a more comprehensive program that will provide totally free interventions and treatment for patients.
