Dr. Conrad Oca discusses the legacy of Capt. Gregorio Oca, and the future of Filipino seafarers and the Philippine Maritime Industry.
“Capt. Gregorio Oca’s attention to cleanliness and detail speaks of a man for whom no detail is ever too small to improve or make better.”
The hospital facilities and staff are updated in terms of equipment and training, so they can serve the seafarers and their families better.
“Being loyal and being genuine. I learned these from Capt. Oca. These traits are extremely important.”
Capt. Oca told us, ‘Love your work. We are here to serve the seafarers—we shouldn’t argue with them.’”
“To dedicate myself to work with the same passion and commitment we give our own families. This is because our work means so much to seafarers, who in turn sacrifice so much for their families.”
