MakatiMed opens Wellness Center for convenient holistic wellness

Located at Ayala North Exchange, the center gives patients an ‘off-hospital’ site option for medical consultations and healthcare services 

Top hospital in the Philippines Makati Medical Center recently opened its MakatiMed Wellness Center at the 7th floor of Ayala North Exchange Tower 1, 6796 Ayala Ave. cor. Salcedo St., Legaspi Village, Makati City. 

Designed to provide a convenient and comfortable facility for consultation, diagnosis, and outpatient procedures, the Center, according to MakatiMed President & CEO Atty. Pilar Nenuca P. Almira, “caters to every individual (pediatric and adult), and was set up to preserve the good health of patients, for early detection, and for ascertaining the diagnosis of possible illness.” 

Offering holistic healthcare and a wide range of procedures, the Center offers diagnostic imaging services including bone mineral densitometry, general ultrasound, mammography, OB-GYN ultrasound, sonomammogram, and x-ray. 

Skin and Laser services cover body contouring, body sculpting, hair reduction, lift and firm, skin renewal, skin whitening, and tattoo removal; while health screening services include electrocardiography (ECG), weight management counseling, laboratory procedures, and primary care consultation. 

MakatiMed Medical Director Saturnino P. Javier, MD, points out that the Wellness Center provides a major contribution to the healthy normal that the hospital is encouraging the public to adopt as we continue to face the pandemic by “giving patients the option of an ‘off-hospital site’ facility that will ensure the continuity of all avenues of care related to the promotion of health wellness.” 

He adds that though the main hospital remains safe, the center gives patients “the flexibility to address health concerns minus the perceived or imagined fear that a hospital environment inherently may bring about.” 

MakatiMed Wellness Center’s Ma. Gia B. Sison, MD assures patients that the facility “implements the same high standard and strict safety and sanitary procedures within Makati Medical Center. We also encourage scheduled procedures to allow our team to handle the screening of each patient who comes through our doors.” 

And since it’s managed by MakatiMed, patients can expect the same high quality healthcare and compassionate service the hospital has long been known for. “The MakatiMed Wellness Center is being managed by implementing the highest standards of safety for patients,” says Atty. Almira. “It is meant to provide the quality of care and service every MakatiMed patient deserves.”
