Madocs’ halal kitchen

Manila Doctors Hospital is the first hospital in the Philippines to receive a halal-kitchen certification from the Islamic Da’wah Council of the Philippines, a recognized halal-accreditation and -certifying body.

MDH has established a dedicated Halal Dietary Services complete with a separate halal kitchen, which produces and serves quality, safe, and nutritious halal meals to Muslim patients, doctors and employees.

Every aspect of food preparation from the procurement of halal-certified ingredients to food production, meal service, cleaning, and sanitation have been and will always be carefully looked at to ensure that it is strictly segregated from the regular kitchen of the hospital.

MDH president Arlene P. Ledesma: “Our Muslim patients, doctors, nurses, technicians, and other employees stand to benefit from knowing that they can be served authentic halal food. It is a small step toward becoming a more inclusive workplace that celebrates and honors their religion and heritage.”

Ledesma also reiterated the hospital’s full commitment in catering the different needs and food preferences of its diverse patient population, having been serving both local and international patients. MDH is also a DoH-accredited hospital for medical tourism.

IDCP is a registered federation of 98 Muslim organizations throughout the country.
