Makati starts partial ops of P9.77-B PPP hospital

The city government of Makati has opened the outpatient department of its P9.77-billion healthcare facility which was being undertaken through public-private partnership (PPP) scheme.

In a statement Wednesday, Makati Mayor Abby Binay said the P9.77-billion Makati Life Medical Center’s outpatient department would be operational 24/7, providing Makati residents and private patients access to healthcare, consultations, diagnostic, and pharmacy services.

Meanwhile, the hospital’s full operation is targeted by early 2024.

"Today marks a great milestone for the people of Makati, especially our senior citizens, as they now have access to quality primary care services 24/7. It took several years to complete, but we delivered on our promise to give Makatizens a bigger and more accessible hospital where they can receive medical attention whenever they need it," Binay said.

The Makati Life Medical Center is considered as the largest PPP hospital to date.

The Makati local government teamed up with LifeNurture Incorporated to launch the healthcare project.

Binay said that once fully operational, the Makati Life Medical Center could deliver “the highest medical standards” while keeping the fees affordable to the public.

The facility is set to have a total of 360 beds and 190 doctor's clinics, as well as advanced technologies for prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.

The PPP project also invested in robotics for the hospital’s physical rehabilitation medical center.—AOL, GMA Integrated News
