CLARK FREEPORT – The direc­tion of health care and pro­grams should be fo­cused on pre­ven­tion rather than treat­ment.

Thus said Dr. Cenon Al­fonso, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of The Medical City (TMC) Clark, dur­ing the sign­ing of a part­ner­ship agree­ment with of­fi­cers of the Pam­panga Press Club (PPC), led by Pres­i­dent Dios­dado Pangili­nan.

Al­fonso said that pre­ven­tive medicine fo­cuses on the health of in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties, and de­fined pop­u­la­tion with a goal of pro­tect­ing, pro­mot­ing, and main­tain­ing well-be­ing and to pre­vent dis­ease, dis­abil­ity, and death.

The TMC of­fi­cial also stressed the re­spon­si­bil­ity of medical prac­ti­tion­ers to ed­u­cate the peo­ple and pa­tients on how to pre­vent ill­nesses. “We in the Medical City, con­sider our pa­tients as part­ners.”

“Ito ang am­ing katungku­lan, bi­gyan ng sapat na kaala­man ang bawat isa sa ko­mu­nidad up­ang mak­a­gawa ng tamang de­sisyon sa kani­lang sar­il­ing kalusugan,”Al­fonso said.

The me­moran­dum of agree­ment (MOA), signed by Al­fonso and Pangili­nan, will pro­vide health ben­e­fits to PPC mem­bers and their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies.

The health ben­e­fits in­clude dis­counts on in-pa­tient and out­pa­tient ser­vices in co­or­di­na­tion and fa­cil­i­ta­tion of ap­point­ments with doc­tors and spe­cialty cen­ters.

Through this part­ner­ship, TMC Clark also aims to es­tab­lish a co­op­er­a­tion with the PPC mem­bers in terms of pro­mo­tion of health pro­grams like well­ness events, blood donation, pre­ven­tive medical ex­am­i­na­tion, and oth­ers.

“This is our way of wel­com­ing the PPC as part of TMC Clark fam­ily,” said Al­fonso.

Eve­lyn Lu­ciano Yu­mul, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor of TMC Clark, said the mian pur­pose of the part­ner­ship is to let the PPC mem­bers and their de­pen­dents ex­pe­ri­ence qual­ity health care with­out leav­ing the provi n ce.

TMC Clark, a world-class ter­tiary hos­pi­tal, is ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing the high­est qual­ity of pa­tient care in a con­ve­nient way, ac­cord­ing to Yu­mul.

“The best way to start the year is to take charge of our health. We are giv­ing our part­ners, the PPC mem­bers and de­pen­dents, the gift of good health to help them make 2017 a more pro­duc­tive year,” Yu­mul added.
