By The Medical City , | January 29, 2016


The Medical City Iloilo (TMCI) recently held the inauguration of its new complex in its current site in Molo district aimed at increasing the hospital’s capacity and service capability, making it the specialty care hospital in the Western Visayas region.

On January 27, 2016, guests were welcomed by an animated Dinagyang street dance performance. A thanksgiving mass was also held followed by a mini press conference. The program proper started at 4pm.

Present were TMC Chairman of the BoardDr. Augusto P. Sarmiento, President and CEO Dr. Alfredo R.A. Bengzon, SVP for Patient Services Group Virginia B. Alano, SVP for Medical Services Group and TMCI CEO Dr. Eugenio Jose F. Ramos, members of the Board of Directors of Professional Services Inc., other members of TMC senior management, managers and staff and distinguished guests led by Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog.

The invocation and singing of the National Anthem was led by the University of San Agustin Troubadours. Dr. Ramos delivered the opening remarks followed by a message of support from Mayor Mabilog.

“I, myself, am a manifestation that The Medical City Iloilo can greatly improve one’s health and wellness because I am also a patient of this hospital,” said Mayor Mabilog in his message during the inauguration.

Dr. Bengzon uttered a testament about The Medical City’s unique value proposition of Patient Partnership while Dr. Sarmiento gave the perfect toast to the success of TMCI and the entire TMC network.

TMCI’s expansion consists of a modern and eco-friendly six-storey structure which has expanded the current structure to accommodate new medical services, house extended operating room suites, 126 patient rooms, doctors’ clinics, expanded emergency and trauma rooms, better equipped physical rehabilitation services, bigger critical care and stroke units, and more imaging, diagnostic and treatment modalities.

The physical transformation allows TMCI to expand its services with a larger capacity to 10 major programs – Cardiovascular, Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Outpatient Clinics, Endoscopy, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Radiology, Teleophthalmology, Wound and Stoma Care and Wellness.

The new complex also blends perfectly with the Esplanade 2 which is part of the River Development Project of Iloilo City designed to turn this part of the city into a wellness hub for Ilonggos as well as local and foreign guests.

In 2009, The Medical City planted itself in Iloilo by taking over Great Savior International Hospital and transforming it into its present form. The groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of the hospital was held on June 14, 2014.

“Now with a bigger staging ground, The Medical City Iloilo aims to pursue more aggressively its goal of changing the landscape of health care in the Western Visayas region,” said Dr. Ramos.

TMCI also takes pride in the cultural transformation of its hospital staff which is vital to the vision and mission of The Medical City Iloilo.

“In adhering to the standards of quality and safety that The Medical City guards so seriously, we shall put life and color to what defines us as patient partner. We shall put premium on competence, absolutely, but we shall not fall short on compassion.”

“We shall not be defined by this beautiful building. We shall be remembered for the experience of our humanity,” said Dr. Ramos.

The program ended with a spectacular fireworks display and a heartwarming applause from the crowd. For the management and staff of TMC Iloilo, watching the stunning fireworks allowed them to reminisce the wonderful moments that led to the momentous event at the same time look forward to the beautiful future that awaits them.
