So when UP-PGH told me about their University Physicians Medical Center (UPMC) and asked if I could blog about it, I said, "Sure!"
I'm going to use their official photos although I wish I'd actually gone there and checked out the place myself. But I have no yaya so I always bring baby Iñigo with me and I didn't want to bring him along for a hospital tour (baka he'll catch something and get sick). So I'll just tell you about the stuff you can find at the new UPMC.
It's a private outpatient diagnostic and surgical center.
Where is it?
It's on the grounds of U.P. Manila and PGH, in the Faculty Medical Arts Building, declared by the National Historical Institute as a heritage site. The interiors were specially decorated to be an homage to the fab Art Deco architecture. I'm so glad they did that! There are so many gorgeous buildings in Manila but no one realizes this because they're ignored, not maintained and not decorated.
Ambulatory Surgical Center, Cardiovascular, Industrial & Occupational Health, Intravenous Therapy, Laboratory & Drug Testing, Radiology & Nuclear Medicine, and Physical Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine.
There's also a pharmacy, coffee shop, food court. If feel mo mag-lakwatsa, malapit lang ang Robisnons Manila! Of course, since it's a campus, the 300 faculty members happen to be doctors! So you can schedule a consultation, have a diagnostic test done, eat lunch, fill out your prescription all in one day and in one place!
There's parking. That's very important in Metro Manila!
Well, my friend says it's a really nice hospital but super cheaper than other medical centers. She lives in Alabang, like katabi niya halos ang Asian Hospital, but she drives all the way to UPMC for her chiropractic therapy sessions. It's not like she's nagtitipid or she's kuripot, ha. She just likes UPMC better. The facilities daw are new and really nice for the price.
