Department of Anesthesiology

The Department of Anesthesiology started along with the inauguration of the GSIS General Hospital on October 8, 1969 with Dr. Romulo Trinidad as the first chairman.

To this department belongs the task of relieving man of pain. All these years, it has been performing its function of giving service to the underprivileged and training young physicians in the science of Anesthesiology. It has trained and graduated anesthesiologist under a three-year residency training program.

Mindful of the constant need for continuous improvement, the department does not cease in its effort to update its facilities, both for service and training, hence affirming its quest for the realization of its vision and mission. 


The Department of Anesthesiology has, for the years passed, continued to support and adhere to the vision of the hospital to be the premier tertiary hospital of the country among DOH hospitals.
