Makati Medical Center

Posted on September 8, 2009 | 5 Comments on Makati Medical Center

The Makati Medical Center was conceived to be one necessary and important feature in a developer’s plan for a total self-contained community in a suburb slowly shaping up in the South of Manila, in the early and mid-sixties. Then, the price of real estate in the now plush Forbes Park subdivision hovered around the innocuous figure of Php 100.00 per square meter as compared to Tondo’s Php 418.00 to 500.00 per square meter and Sampaloc’s Php 320.00 to 400.00 per square meter. Young folks then danced to the rock music of the Beatles, while the whole country was electrified by the successful launching of Apollo 10 which put the first man on the moon. Then, the prestigious Asian Institute of Management was being put up by the joint effort of the Ateneo University, De La Salle University and the Harvard Business School. The favorite pizza joint (then the only one in the country) was the Plaza Restaurant at the Makati Shopping Center, owned by the owners of the Aristocrat chain. It was about this time when Enrique Zobel, the top man of the Ayala conglomerate, asked three prominent figures in medical practice at that time, to compose the core group of what was to become the leading hospital in the country. Dr. Constantino P. Manahan, a famous OB-Gyne specialist and Dr. Jose Y. Fores , an equally well-known and distinguished surgeon and Dr. Mariano M. Alimurung, a world renowned cardiologist answered Zobel’s call. The following lines are from the recollections of Dr. Carlos L. Sevilla, a founding group member, who became the Vice-Chairman of the Board ad Treasurer and later on the hospital’s Chairman of the Department of Opthalmology, of the years when the Makati Medical Center was just a dream in the minds of its founders. “The dream took root years before its inauguration. Frustrated by the dearth of facilities and technology for modern medical procedures and advanced training in the country, a group of idealist medical professionals got together to pursue a common goal – the establishment of a hospital equipped with the best and the latest in medical facilities and technology, to be manned by the most competent and well-trained medical staff; a hospital which approximates those abroad so that Filipino medical graduates need not go out of the country for advanced training and specialization. That group of medical professional, composed of the country’s more respected medical practitioners, formed MMC’s founding group. “On May 31, 1969, the Makati Medical Center formally opened its doors to the public. To us its founders, that day marked the fulfillment of a dream and the culmination of years of hard work and sacrifices. Even before its tie-up with the Makati Municipal government for the Makati Health Program (MHP), we had our own charity program for the indigents of Makati as well as those form other cities, municipalities and provinces. Some of them pay a minimal amount for medicines, the more indigent ones do not pay anything at all. But definitely, there is no dividing line in the quality of our service; we treat our charity cases in the same manner accorded their pay patients. The Makati Medical Center Health Programs – MMC Charity Program – Computerized Imaging Institute – Industrial Health Clinics – Out Patient Department Charity – Remedios T. Romualdez Memorial – College of Nursing – Tropical Disease Foundation The MAKATI MEDICAL CENTER (MMC) was established by a group of dedicated medical professionals with a common vision to administer medical care of the highest order, and to make MMC the leading provider of health care in the country.

    Dear Sir/Maam:

    I chose personally this prestigious institution to apply as a staff nurse, who I believe it will offer me sufficient challenges and responsibilities and I feel that my experience, skills, knowledge and confidence match for this position.

    My educational qualification helps me working in this field as I have graduated from a reputed school of nursing, Riverside College, Bacolod City, Philippines last March 2006 and I passed my Nurse Licensure Examination last June 2006. With my 2 years and 9 months hospital experience including volunteer, and having special interest in emergency and accident care, the details have been provided in the resume, I had faced all types of situation and challenges and able to handle critical patients. I am a good team player with my colleagues and other staff members. I have created and maintained excellent relationships with patients and family members.

    Moreover, I believe that a well – trained and Professional Registered Nurse (RN) is highly needed to grow and integrity of any department and I am the one who has the skills set and the experience you are looking for. I am open for trainings and seminars, which it helps for my professional and career growth. Hopefully, you will find that I am worthwhile and skilled nurse who deserves further attention in bringing quality healthcare services. Dedication, energetic, loyalty, honesty, flexibility and ability to adapt to a new working environment are some of my additional qualities.

    Maybe, you will be interviewing other potential Professional Registered Nurse (RN) but I hope you will not make a final decision until I talk over this job with you and show what I can bring to it.

    If you feel that, I am the ideal candidate to join your hospital, please call me to discuss about interview date and time on my mobile number +639195516903. Thank you so much for consideration and time.
