When my mother died due to cancer, I became health conscious.

From the moment she was diagnosed, we have been to different hospitals because of various tests that she needs before the operation.  Imagine the hardship of transferring from one hospital to another plus the overhead for ambulance transportation.

Because of that experience, I became aware of what to look for in a hospital for my clinical consultations.

ManilaMed is a premier hospital located in the heart of Manila (U.N Avenue corner Taft Avenue, Manila). We recently visited the hospital to check its state-of-the-art facilities.

Why premier hospital?

ManilaMed prides itself of having a roster of medical professionals known for different expertise. In fact, one of its founders, Dr. Paulo C. Campos, holds the illustrious reputation of being the Father of Nuclear Medicine in the Philippines, as a result of his many achievements and breakthroughs in the field.


Why would I choose ManilaMed?

ManilaMed is a one-stop medical institution. While other hospital needs to transfer you to other hospital for your required procedure, ManilaMed has it all the procedures that you need. Moreover, during the course of our tour, I have realized that it has taken huge steps in pushing for its desired identity of one that provides exceptional and compassionate patient care.

The following subcategories are the different centers that we have checked during our visit inside the hospital:

Center for Women’s Health

I so love this! Knowing that everything I need is in one center. I did say that because I’m very conscious with my health, and there are procedures that were advised to me by my doctors that I should undergo, and to my amazement, they have it in their Center for Women’s Health. The cost was in the range that I was told by my personal doctor. What I have learned is that the Center for Women’s Health of ManilaMed is the first in the country to house 5 major units dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of health issues important to us, women.

They offer the following services:

OB-GYN Ultrasound (OBUS)

  1. 2D, 3D, 4D Ultrasound
  2. Transabdominal, Transvaginal and Trans rectal Biophysical Score (BPS)
  3. Non Stress Test (NST)
  4. Congenital Anomaly Scanning (CAS)
  5. Bogy Doppler Studies
  6. Ultrasound Guided Paracentesis

Maternal and Fetal Medicines (MFM)

  1. Consultation for high risk pregnancies
  2. Ultrasound for 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy such as CAS, BPP, Biometry, Doppler Studies
  3. Non Stress Test
  4. Ultrasound guided amnioreduction

Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC)

  1. Mammography
  2. Sonomammography (Breast ultrasound)
  3. Core Biopsy
  4. Ductography
  5. Wire Localization
  6. Cyst Aspiration

Fertility Enhancement Center (FEC)

  1. Consultation for the infertile couple
  2. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  3. Follicle monitoring
  4. Evaluation of fallopian tube patency (hysterogram)
  5. Semen Analysis and Sperm Washing

Colposcopy and Cryotherapy Center (CCC)

  1. Colposcopy
  2. Cryotherapy
  3. Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)
  4. Liquid based cytology with HPV-DNA testing
  5. Vulvar Biopsy
  6. Treatment for Vulvoginal Warts

Complementary Services

  1. Routine Pap Smear
  2. Acupuncture For infertility
  3. Reproductive Urology
  4. Pediatric Cardiology
  5. Breast Surgery
  6. Cosmetic Surgery

I was actually looking for a hospital that does Cryotherapy and ManilaMed has it which made me recommend the facility to my brother for his wife who has a cyst in her breast.

Nuclear Medicine Unit

This center of ManilaMed uses equipment which entails the use of small amount of radioactive isotopes usually attached to a tracer molecule or radiopharmaceutical to diagnose and determine the severity of cancer, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

ManilaMed state-of-the-art  MRI machine  gives the doctor accurate images and measurement necessary for your treatment plus it also shortens the time required for MRI procedure

Heart Station

Heart Station implements diagnostic test based on your doctor’s prescription and offer the following services like

24 hour holter monitor

Carotid/venous/arterial duplex scan

Dobutamine stress echocardiogram

Electrocardiography

Treadmill stress echocardiogram

Treadmill stress test

Two dimensional echocardiogram (2D echo)

Hemodialysis Unit

Compared to other centers that have the dialysis procedures, ManilaMed Hemodialysis Unit has a 20-bed capacity special area equipped with the latest B. Braun dialysis machine with the capacity for online hemodiafiltration.  For 2 hours, the patients are comfortable lying down and watching TV while doing the procedure.

 

Just what the ManilaMed often says “Only our best to make you feel better”, I can really attest that they value the good of every patient before anything else as seen for their passion in making every person who walks through their doors of making them feel better.

I have plans of going back, yes; it may be far from my residence but I am sure that the trip is all worth it because I can have all the care that I need in one hospital if I may say so.

I was truly inspired in the Center for Women’s Health because of the entire things that I have learned, and because they have all the things that I want for the check up and future treatments that I want to avail.

See you soon, ManilaMed! 🙂

  1. A one stop shop for all your medical needs gets on A on my books. For check ups and medical/diagnostic tests though we prefer going to bigger hospitals.

  2. I also like one stop hospitals. I dread those situations I’ve heard and watched from people and movies where they have to transfer from one hospital to another. I mean when I was in labor and was transferring from one room to another, it was already difficult. How much more to a differe t location. 🙂 One day, I wish to see most hospitals to have complete facilities too. 🙂

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. Mahirap talaga kalaban ang cancer. That’s why it’s important talaga na we take care of our health. Prevention is always better than cure. 🙂 It’s great to know about ManilaMed. Pareho tayo na pagdating sa ospital, importante sakin yung facilities and the line of doctors na merong clinic sa kanila.

  4. I am from Manila an malapit lang ito samin. Taking note of this pag nagkaron na kami ng third baby, para dito na ‘ko magpacheckup until I give birth.

  5. This has been a friend’s choice for her 2 pregnancies and she attests to its facilities. 🙂 If this is nearer we would have opted for it but we’re surrounded by 3 other hospitals that are just 5min away. But for people needing a lot of lab tests, ManilaMed is a great choice.

  6. So sorry to hear about your mom, we too experienced the same with my lola. This is why I prefer to live in an area where medical facilities are nearby. Wala kse top notch med facility dun sa probinsya namin. 🙁

  7. I haven’t been to ManilaMed because of the location. It’s nice that they also have a Center for Women’s health. That’s what I love with my favorite hospital in Ortigas.

  8. It is very important to me that when it comes to lab works I can fully rely on accurate results and as you shared here ManilaMed is fully equipped with the latest medical equipment for accuracy and modern treatment.

  9. Sometimes, ugly things happen first before we give much importance to important things, health included. I am sorry for your lost. It somehow brought something nice as a consequence, which is being health conscious. And truly, finding a hospital you could trust is equally important. It is reassuring to know that ManilaMed is one of those hospitals that can be trusted. I also love hospitals that do not require one to transfer to other medical institutions for a specific procedure.
