Makati Medical Center bolsters its position of providing top-notch patient experience with the inauguration of its Medical Concierge. Located at the 1st Floor of Tower 1, the full-service concierge facility is created to deliver medical-related and lifestyle assistance services for MakatiMed’s local and international patients.
“We have always prided ourselves on putting the patient’s needs front and center,” says Rosalie R. Montenegro, MakatiMed President & CEO. “The creation of the Medical Concierge further ensures that patients and their guests are comfortable, from the moment they step inside MakatiMed until they return home or arrive at their destination.”
“We recognize that most patients have needs beyond their medical concerns while admitted, and that these needs may be harder to obtain in a hospital setting,” says Arlyn L. Songco, Division Head, Marketing & Sales Services. “With the Medical Concierge, patients and guests can look forward to assistance for a gamut of requests, from basic appointment setting or explanation of medical procedure packages, to exclusive needs such as private dining arrangements, travel-related requests, or even personal shopping.”
