“Health is wealth” — this is what people tell us so that we take care of ourselves in order to live long and enjoy life to the fullest. As we look for ways to stay healthy, it is important to have an ally that will be always there for you in all steps of your healthcare journey.
By visiting the Felicidad Sy Health and Wellness Center at St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC) in Bonifacio Global City (in Taguig), patients are assured of a holistic assessment of their health and the peace of mind that comes from medical experts’ knowledge. The Health and Wellness Center provides a wide range of Executive Check-up Packages suited for patients’ various needs, such as diabetes screening, overweight screening, and basic health screening.
SLMC patients have considered the Health and Wellness Center as a reliable partner for their healthcare needs. Chris and Clarisse Tiu, for instance, recently visited the Center and shared their experience. “The place is very welcoming, it’s not intimidating at all. It does not feel like a sick check-up, it feels like a well[ness] visit,” Clarisse said. Meanwhile, Chris praised the Center’s one-stop shop setup.
“I found it very convenient that we didn’t have to keep going up and down or going to different centers to do the different tests. Everything was done in one facility or one room,” he remarked.
The former PBA player also took note of the Center’s safety protocols. “The moment you enter the hospital, you need a Health Declaration Form. Even before the wellness executive check-up, we had to go undergo a PCR test,” he shared.
Clarisse also said other people should patronize the Health and Wellness Center for its patient-oriented services. “If you want to get all of your tests done in one place conveniently, safely, and also have a really pleasant experience, then we definitely recommend it to our friends and family,” she added.
Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero and wife Heart Evangelista were also delighted with their experience in the Center. When asked about what he liked about the place, Escudero praised the staff members’ professionalism. “You feel very safe and you feel secure and you feel confident,” he said.
Heart also praised the convenience of the Center’s healthcare services. “You have a really good schedule that is just tuloy-tuloy, so I really appreciate that because everybody is just so fast,” she remarked. “You actually feel like you are checking into a hotel.”
Chiz also praised the meticulous safety protocols St. Luke’s instituted in the Health and Wellness Center. “That’s what you expect from the country’s premier hospital not only when it comes to wellness, but also when it comes to treating any possible ailment in the human body you might be suffering from,” he said.
When asked if she would recommend the Center to others, Heart said, “I think this is the best way to start your year or to end your year.”
The Health and Wellness Center also continues to innovate in order to provide patients the best quality of service they can get. In line with International Women’s Month, the Center is offering the St. Luke’s Women’s Health in Check package from March 1 to May 31, 2021, to help female patients address health concerns before they start. The package includes multiple benefits such as pap smear, gyne ultrasound, and breast ultrasound services together with complementary health and medical history review and COVID-19 RT-PCR test.
Truly, at St. Luke’s Medical Center, patients are assured that their care and satisfaction are of utmost priority.
