About The Association...


Administrators of several private hospitals convened and decided to form an association of private hospitals nationwide on March 13, 1979 in Antipolo, Rizal that will properly address the problems of the industry. Thus, the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, Inc. (PHAP) was born.
