Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC) President and CEO Raul C. Pagdanganan was recently honored with the Accountancy Centenary Award for Excellence by the Professional Regulatory Board of Accountancy (BOA). The conferment was held at the Manila Hotel on March 17, Friday, in celebration of 100 years of the Accountancy Act of 1923 in the Philippines.
Following the theme “Celebrating the Past, Transforming the Present, Shaping the Future,” the Accountancy Centenary Award was given to 100 of the most excellent certified public accountants (CPA) in the country who ‘demonstrated untarnished integrity and reputation’ and ‘have contributed immensely in the advancement of accountancy profession and national development’.
Pagdanganan finished his Business Administration and Accountancy degree at the University of the Philippines (UP) in 1981 and passed his board exam as part of the top 20 successful takers. He was appointed to the UP Board of Regents 40 years later, in July 2021.
Pagdanganan has accumulated 25 years of experience as a senior finance executive and member of management in different companies, joining CSMC as its President and CEO in September 2020. During this period, he has helped bolster CSMC’s reputation as one of the Philippines’ leading hospitals in the fields of Cardiology, Oncology, Neurology and more, with his efforts commended on numerous prestigious platforms; Pagdanganan’s most recent recognition prior to the Accountancy Centenary Award was the Dangal ng Lipi Award for Health, the highest award given by the provincial government of Bulacan, presented to him in September 2022.
“I’m humbled and greatly appreciative of this recognition given to me by my esteemed colleagues in the field of Accountancy,” said Pagdanganan. “I’m also grateful to the people and businesses who trusted me over the years, especially my Cardinal Santos family. I would not be where I am today without their support.”
