Makati Medical Centre was established in 1969. Following decades of innovation, development, and improvement, it has transformed into one of the Philippines’ premier hospitals and Asia’s top medical research and training facilities. Featuring sophisticated medical and surgical facilities, it has earned the distinction of being one of the best-equipped hospitals in Asia.
The hospital houses an extensive range of medical and surgical specialties including cardiac surgery, cardiology, cosmetic surgery, dermatology, endocrinology, ENT, gastroenterology, internal medicine, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and orthopaedics, among others. It is accredited by the Joint Commission International, which reflects the hospital’s commitment to providing international standards of medical care.
Makati Medical Centre has pioneered various procedures, facilities, and services in the Philippines, such as:
- First successful heart transplant
- First to use pentothal anaesthesia for labour
- First to establish hospital-based laser centre
- First to establish a cardiology computerised imaging institute, which is a primary centre for neuroradiology
- First to separate conjoined twins
The hospital, which was awarded the 2005 National Product Quality Excellence Award, is the first and only health institution in the Philippines to be certified with the 4th edition Joint Commission International accreditation standards. It treats every patient with care, dignity, and courtesy and its primary goal is to ensure the health and overall well-being of patients.
The hospital’s vision is to become the undisputed leading medical centre in the Philippines and to be able to compete with the best hospitals in the world by 2020.
