100 bed state-of-the art hospital to open in Cagayan

Cagayan, Philippines─Another healthcare facility, the Cagayan United Doctors Medical Center (CUDMC) with a 100-bed capacity state-of-the-art hospital will soon be catering to all basic health services.

CUDMC offers more than 80 laboratory services for hematology, clinical microbiology, clinical microscopy, serology and immunology including CoViD-9 antigen and rapid test and clinical chemistry.

In a press release, Dr. Valeriano Combate, President Board of Directors, said the new hospital has reserved 20% of its bed capacity for CoViD-19 patients exclusively isolated at the 4th floor of the 5-storey hospital in compliance to Department of Health (DOH) Administrative Order No. 2020-016.

Considering that all hospitals and isolation facilities in the region have now reached its maximum capacity, Combate said they can extend up to 30% to cater and provide additional beds for CoViD patients.

In addition, the center boasts its eight isolation rooms with negative pressure wherein it helps prevent airborne diseases from escaping the room and infecting other people especially in the case of COVID.

One of the features of the hospital is the presence of the healing garden on its third floor adorned with beautiful landscape of flowers and foliage of different kinds which would help energize and heal patients.

The Cardiovascular Unit (Heart Station) is equipped with treadmill stress test, 2D echo with Doppler, 24-hour holter monitoring, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and electrocardiogram (ECG) and stress echocardiogram.

Combate assured the public that they will offer affordable prices for its services given that the hospital is privately-owned.

Said level 2 hospital located at the Caritan Centro, Tuguegarao City will be open to serve once the Cagayan United Doctors Medical Center of Tuguegarao City, Inc. (CUMDC) received its license to operate (LTO) from the Department of Health.
