MORE changes are coming at UST Hospital after a professor at the College of Nursing was appointed medical director.

Dr. Charito Malong-Consolacion will serve a three-year term beginning July 28, according to a letter of appointment signed by Fr. Napoleon Sipalay, O.P., Dominican prior provincial and chairman of the board of trustees.

She replaces Dr. Marcellus Francis Ramirez, who served as acting medical director for almost two years.

“I hope you all accord the same commitment, respect and dedication to the new medical director,” Ramirez said in a text message to his team.

Her appointment came just days after Fr. Julius Paul Factora, O.P, the regent of Nursing, was named chief executive officer of UST Hospital.

Consolacion earned her nursing and medicine degrees from UST.

She finished her residency in internal medicine at UST Hospital, where she became a nephrology consultant.

Consolacion earned her masters degree in hospital administration, magna cum laude, in 2019.

At Nursing, she was the subject coordinator of health assessment.

Consolacion received the Gawad Santo Tomas for research and community service in 2018.
