The high cost of surgical procedures today can be daunting, especially if you are on the hunt for top-notch service. The pressing question then is, where could one possibly secure high quality, patient-centered services through advanced medical equipment and first-class healthcare at non-prohibitive prices?
The simple answer is this: The Surgery Center at Centuria Medical Makati (CMM). It is managed and operated by Amatus Surgicare Inc. in a joint-venture partnership with Centuria Medical. This new Center of Excellence at Centuria Medical is a stand-alone, out-patient surgical facility that caters to the needs of specialties such as Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic/Cosmetic Surgery, Dermatology, ENT-HNS, Gastroenterology, OB-GYN, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics and Urology. Over 500 highly skilled and board certified doctors from different medical practices have already been accredited by the Center and the number is expected to grow by the end of the year.
Also, adding to the accessibility of the surgical facility is its openness to use by other doctors in Centuria Medical, as well as those from anywhere in the Philippines. If an accredited dentist is in need of a sterile environment to perform a dental implantation surgery in Metro Manila, he/she need only reserve an Operating Room for the expected date of procedure at TSC. Depending on the nature of the procedure, a reasonably priced corresponding fee is charged.
At present. the center has a total of nine spacious and fully-equipped operating theaters on Centuria Medical’s 7th floor, occupying more than half of the facility space.
On why they chose to locate at Centuria Medical, TSC President Dr. James Joaquino stated that it has to do with the facility and center’s same values and vision.
“By bringing in the best surgeons of different specialties, I believe that The Surgery Center at Centuria Medical Makati envisions the same goal, and that is to strengthen the quality of life through advanced medical facilities and affordable healthcare procedures. We cannot go wrong in this partnership as our team only partners with the best,” Dr. Joaquino said.
At Centuria Medical, doctors own the spaces, so they are able to democratize the practice and open the possibility of getting quality care at attainable rates.
In instances when a patient wishes to or needs to stay within the premises to anticipate the procedure or enjoy recovery, Centuria has built a total of 10 Executive Suites, one of which is dubbed as the Ambassador’s Suite, the biggest one in the entire cluster. Those availing of regular suites need not worry, as all suites are equally modern and well designed, just with relatively minimal space. The finishes are hotel grade, the facility attended by Centuria’s concierge service, a practice that has made the developer, Century Properties known in the industry.
But apart from its respected medical practitioners and cutting-edge facilities, The Surgery Center at Centuria Medical Makati also provides accessibility to patients, as it is located within the country’s financial business district and close to other significant landmarks in the Metro.
It also able to benefit from Centuria’s premium healthcare service that is the patient queuing system. This allows walk-in visitors to book doctors of their choice, thus speeding up the usual process of booking an appointment. Doctors’ clinics are also pre-wired with high-speed communication systems enabling them to save and transmit patient data from electronic medical records (EMR) and utilizing the picture archiving communication systems (PACS). Patients are also assisted with their travel and accommodation bookings by the medical concierge.
Centuria Medical Makati is a 28-story medical arts building located on Kalayaan Avenue in Makati City. The IT-powered outpatient center houses more than 500 doctors’ clinics and premier facilities which include, aside from The Surgery Center, a breast clinic and executive guest suites.
