Century Properties builds world-class medical arts center
Century Properties continues to spearhead breakthroughs and make significant impact in the property industry with its new venture — the Centuria Medical Makati.
Centuria Medical Makati is a 28-story medical arts center that will house more than 500 clinics to serve doctors of various medical expertise, medical tourists and local patients. The property boasts of a spacious lobby and warmly lit, homey surroundings — a refreshing departure from the aseptic ambience of traditional clinics.
The infrastructure will also dedicate floors for medical support facilities including a hospital-grade day surgery center, recovery suites, radiology center, pharmacy and diagnostic laboratory to be run by Hi-Precision Diagnostics.
Providing consultancy for Centuria Medical Makati’s day surgery infrastructure design is GE Healthcare, globally recognized not just for its medical equipment and healthcare solutions but also for its extensive medical infrastructure consultancy services.
The concept of a topnotch outpatient IT-medical center began with Century Properties Chairman Jose E.B. Antonio who wanted to highlight and maximize the country’s untapped potential as a medical tourism destination.
“We’re very bullish about the prospects of medical tourism in the Philippines considering that the cost of treatments here is one-third of what you would pay in the United States,” Antonio said at an investment forum.
“We have capable, good doctors. The fact is that our doctors are well-educated. We have the best nurses all over the world. We Filipinos deliver service with our signature warmth and genuine care. And the only thing we need to provide in order to serve this market are the facilities. This world-class medical arts building in the Philippines is going to be the first of its kind – our contribution to help push medical tourism,” he added.
Now on its finishing stages and slated for turnover to clinic space owners by the end of 2014, an added attraction of Centuria Medical Makati is its convenient location in the heart of Makati, right across the new Century City Mall. The strategic location guarantees easy access to and from offices, major banking establishments, residential communities, and top hotels.
Convenience is certainly of utmost priority for medical tourists and patients based outside the country. Centuria’s medical concierge service will assist in consultation scheduling, shuttle and hotel bookings, as well as flight arrangements should clients wish to tour the Philippines.
