Laguna hospital launches mobile clinic

THE Medical City South Luzon (TMC-SL) on Monday launched a mobile clinic amid the current pandemic and the increasing demand for healthcare.

Sta. Rosa City Mayor Arlene Arcillas led the ribbon cutting for the mobile clinic.

According to Dr. Jose Enrico Juliano, an ophthalmologist and the chief operating officer of TMC-SL, the mobile clinic is a specially-designed vehicle made to provide a wide range of quality healthcare services.

Among them are laboratory and diagnostic services such as x-ray and ECG, ophthalmology screening and referrals to ophthalmologists and other medical specialists for teleconsultation.

The mobile clinic aims to serve all employees from different locators of industrial parks such as the Laguna Technopark Inc., Laguna International Industrial Park, Carmelray 1 and 2, and First Philippine Industrial Park, as well as residents of neighboring communities by giving them easy and convenient access to quality heathcare.

“We will bring services of the hospital to your doorsteps,” Juliano said

Dr. Cesar Espiritu, president and CEO of TMC-SL, said the concept for mobile clinic came out due to Covid pandemic.

“Nakita namin ang pangangailangan because of fear of patients na magpunta sa hospital because of Covid, kaya tayo na ang pupunta sa kanila. We need to help people who depend on us,’ Espiritu said.

The clinic will have a scheduled regular visit once a week in different companies and communities to provide easy and safe access to health care services.

For business owners, having the mobile clinic at their location will help in their employee’s productivity by providing them easy access to diagnostic tests.

Having access to a regular health care provider will help people living in the communities receive health care and support closer to home.

Formerly known as Southern Luzon Hospital and Medical Center (SLHMC), TMC-SL serves patients from Southern Luzon, particularly the provinces of Laguna, Batangas, and Cavite.

It was designated by the local government of Santa Rosa as a major referral center for Covid-19 patients. It has a separate facility called “Complex of Hope,” making TMCSL as one of the safest hospitals in the region.

One of the leading innovators in the healthcare industry, TMC South Luzon has the most comprehensive Eye Center in the region and is poised to be the Cardiovascular Center of Southern Luzon.

The hospital will soon launch an HIV Treatment Hub, Kidney and Stone Center, ENT Center and Neuro Critical Care Unit.
