Dubbed as the country’s first medical mall, Centuria Medical Makati aims to give a world-class experience to both local and foreign patients
The Philippines’ expanding economy, public infrastructure, and job market have positioned the country to become a haven for expats and foreigners seeking a better quality of life. This includes the medical tourism industry, where people from all over the world are realizing that the country offers exceptional health care at a fraction of the cost.
Noted real estate developer Century Properties ventures into this booming industry via Centuria Medical Makati, a 500-clinic, 28-story outpatient facility located in Century City, a 3.4-hectare mixed-use development in Barangay Poblacion. Touted as the country’s first medical mall, Centuria Medical Makati aims to give a world-class experience to both local and foreign patients by combining the technology and expertise of a tertiary hospital with the luxurious, laid-back ambiance of a lifestyle mall.
For medical director Dr. Chelsea Elizabeth Samson, Centuria Medical Makati is a one-stop shop for a wide-range of patients as it offers a vast range of medical services and procedures, giving patients a lot of options to choose from. Among its six centers of excellence are the Advanced Lab Solutions by Hi-Precision and the Surgery Center at the seventh floor, and the Asian Breast Center and the Peregrine and Eye Laser Institute at the eighth floor.
Also included is the Urgent Care Clinic, which is open 24/7 and caters to patients who need immediate medical attention, but facing conditions that are not necessarily life-threatening such as cough and colds, headaches and dizziness, and minor cuts and abrasions. Completing the centers of excellence is the Executive Screening Center, which provides comprehensive and personalized executive checkups to evaluate the patient’s health status and detect unrecognized health risks.
Visitors who prefer to complete their executive checkups without having to leave the premises can check in to the Executive Guest Suites located at the eighth floor. These are fully furnished hotel-style suites that provide a unique healing environment for patients, complete with round-the-clock assistance and choice recovery meals.
Aside from clinics and patient rooms, Centuria Medical Makati also houses a high-end food hall located at the topmost floor dubbed Sky Lounge, and an event venue courtesy of HAUS Connexxion at the 17th floor. And just like a regular mall, it also has a bank, a convenience store, and several other concessionaires, plus a dedicated concierge similar to a five-star hotel to welcome guests and patients.
Centuria Medical Makati has also partnered with Siglo Suites, which offers serviced residences across Century Properties projects, perfect for tourists and visitors who wish to extend their stay in the country.
Projects of Century Properties include the Gramercy Residences, one of the tallest buildings in the Philippines; the Azure Urban Resort Residences, which houses the country’s first man-made beach; and the world’s first-ever Forbes Media Tower, which is poised to become the address of choice for BPOs and multinational corporations.
