Nuvali, the largest self-sustainable eco-friendly community in the country developed by Ayala Land Inc., held the groundbreaking ceremony of UPMC-Nuvali, a specialty orthopedic medical center within the eco-community last December.
Anna Ma. Margarita "Meean" Dy, Strategic Landbank Management Group Head of Ayala Land Inc. welcomed the guests. "We've seen Nuvali rise from the ground," said Dy. "A hospital is very special for us. It's always been part of our plan to build a hospital and provide medical service to Sta. Rosa, Laguna."
Sharing Nuvali's vision and compassion for the needy is UPMC or the University Physicians Medical Center, a private multi-specialty outpatient diagnostic and surgical center designed as a one-stop health facility providing world-class healthcare to all.
Dr. Edwin Mercado, UPMC President, was equally pleased that the partnership with Nuvali will finally come into fruition. "UPMC-Nuvali is another medical facility configured into a specialty orthopedic hospital that aims to answer the need for orthopedic services south of Manila," said Dr. Mercado in his speech.
He also relayed the good news that orthopedic services will be covered by Philhealth. "UPMC-NUVALI follows the same procedural mandate that UPMC is known for, the same-day surgery set-up which means that we can send patients home in 24 hours."
