MetroSanitas Met Live clinic, the first outpatient-surgery-clinic built together by Metro Pacific and Keralty in the Philippines

Blog Image

MetroSanitas Met Live Clinic has become the first outpatient-surgery-clinic developed by Metro Sanitas Corporation, the joint-venture between the Filipino corporation Metro Pacific Hospitals Holding (MPHHI) and the worldwide established Keralty health specialized group (formerly known as Organización Sanitas Internacional). Located in Pasay City (3rd floor of Met Live Mall, EDSA extension corner Macapagal) and with more than 1,200 sqm, the new clinic is the biggest outpatient-surgery-clinic in the area. Equipped with the latest technologies, it will offer not only general medicine, but also a large variety of specialties (outpatient-surgery, clinical laboratory, preventive medicine programs, etc.). The clinic has been designed to attend up to the 80% of the healthcare needs of the people living or working in its area of influence.

The MetroSanitas Met Live clinic presentation event took place last May 24. The celebration was also an opportunity to present the project of Metro Sanitas Corporation: the establishment of an outpatient clinic network oriented to the provision of integrated and high-quality medical care in the Philippines. During the event, Mr. Augusto Palisoc Jr., Metro Sanitas Corporation Chairman and Metro Pacific Hospitals Holding President, explained the reasons that lead Metro Pacific to choose Keralty as partner. In this sense, Mr. Sergio Martinez, Metro Sanitas Corporation President and Keralty Global CEO commented how the companies “share the same values and a very valuable know-how”. “Keralty is about ‘care’ and ‘altitude’, because what we think the most is to care about our patients, our customers, our employees: care about people. We are a company from people to people”, he added. Referring to the project, Ms. Anna Lacambra, Metro Sanitas Corporation CEO and CEO Keralty Philippines, pointed out the objectives that the joint-venture has in the country and explained the distinguishing characteristics of the new clinic.

A health system based on commitment

Following the example of other clinics successfully developed by Keralty in several countries, MetroSanitas Met Live clinic has been designed under the Keralty health system and according to the ‘one stop clinic’ concept. The high attention paid to key aspects as clinic location, service quality and affordability, technological equipment and innovation or research constitute the main pillars of Keralty ‘one stop clinic’ model, which, at the same time, is supported by the professionalism and human quality of a multidisciplinary team that works applying a health model which can be summarized in the following 5P’s: personalized, predictive, preventive, participative and permanent. In few words, a model that implies the adoption of a preventive attitude towards disease instead a reactive one and which allows to solve up to the 80% of patients’ health needs in one single place.  

In this way, Keralty clinics represent the implementation of the health system developed by Keralty group along all its years of experience in the health sector. In contrast with other ways to understand health, the Keralty health system stands out for paying attention not only to the physical state of the patient, but also to his emotional state, setting the focus of attention in health prevention and promotion instead of focusing on the disease. Consequently, the Keralty health system is not restricted to identify health with the absence of disease; it understands health as a state of well-being that transcends the individual condition of the patient having also effect on his closest environment (family, friends, community, society). Thanks to this, Keralty has become a ‘health producer’ group whose health system is not only confined to guarantee the well-being of its patients, redounding as well to the well-being of the society as a whole. For this all, Keralty constitutes a ‘health producer’ group which is committed not only to its patients, but also to the society where it has presence.
