About the St. Scholastica’s Mission Hospital at Pambjan
The Missionary Benedictine Sisters in the Philippines established a modest 25-bed facility to address the critical need of Pambujan and its surrounding communities for low cost health care. In certain cases, care will be provided for free particularly to those who truly cannot afford the cost but are in dire need of care.
The hospital sits on 3.5 hectares of land donated by the Salazar family and was deeded free and clear to the Missionary Sisters of St. Benedictine.
The Hyundai Asia Resources, Incorporated courtesy of the CEO Fe Perez-Agudo, an alumna of the Benedictine-run St. Scholastica College funded construction of the facility.
A corporate entity called AIM of Naves,France donated a fully equipped mobile clinic that serves as the extension of the hospital.
In order for the hospital to be sustainable, an Endowment Fund Campaign of 100 Million Pesos (US $2.3 M) was established to ensure the long-term viability of the Hospital.
A dental clinic is presently under construction within the facility of the Hospital. It is slated to open when the hospital is inaugurated in February 2016.
