Due to the influx of COVID-19 cases arising from the Omicron outbreak in the country, Filipinos are once again confined to their homes, either due to implementations by their local government units, or self-imposing these measures just to keep safe. This means that certain medical tests and procedures have gone back to being remotely accessed.
With the aim of improving the quality of life for everyone, Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC) expanded its mobile clinic program with their latest healthcare innovation, Hospital on Wheels.
Taking its cue from its predecessor, the Cardinal on Wheels, Hospital on Wheels embarks on making its quality and patient-centered services accessible to every Filipino home. The Hospital on Wheels is a larger, 32-foot, ten-wheeler mobile clinic, that is fully equipped to accommodate a variety of hospital services like laboratory tests such as Urinalysis, Fecalysis, and Complete Blood Count among others. It is capable of specialized tests like ECG, Ultrasound, and 2D-Echo. Moreover, CSMC’s top medical professionals and staff can also conduct consultations.
While the initial program was developed out of CSMC’s desire to meet the medical needs of the community and reach as many patients who need medical care, the Hospital on Wheels takes it one step further by bringing it to corporate partners, small to medium enterprises, private villages and condominiums.
Such an effort was acknowledged and even praised by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Atty. Benjamin "Benhur" Abalos Jr. during the launch last December, emphasizing how the program benefits the community and helps the government in curbing the pandemic’s effects.
