The Fe del Mundo Medical Center (FDMMC), a pioneer in child health care in the Philippines, unveiled on February 17 its newly renovated buildings and facilities to become a fully upgraded private-general hospital catering to communities in Quezon City.
The unveiling marked the hospital’s full leap from being a primarily children’s and maternity hospital to a holistic medical center offering services to patients of all ages, from prework to postcare.
Under the new management of Mount Grace Hospitals, the FDMMC now offers improved facilities in allergology-immunology, hemodialysis, physical rehabilitation, endoscopy, hematology-oncology, and obstetrics and gynecology; surgery, with various subspecialties in internal medicine and pediatrics; anesthesia and pain management; and comprehensive diagnostic services.
“We are continuously improving and expanding our services to achieve our goal of giving our patients quality and affordable medical services. The Fe del Mundo Medical Center has grown into a bigger and better hospital, capable of catering to the growing needs of our patients,” said Marivic T. Lualhati, FDMMC general manager.
The hospital was founded by the late Dr. Fe del Mundo, a distinguished Filipino scientist and pediatrician who received various awards during her career, including the Elizabeth Blackwell Award as a “Woman Doctor of World Renown” and the 15th International Congress of Pediatrics Award as the “Most Outstanding Pediatrician and Humanitarian” in 1977.
Dr. del Mundo established the FDMMC in 1957, first as a children’s memorial hospital that had a 107-bed capacity and a wide array of services, mainly for pediatric patients. It later became known as the FDMMC in honor of her works and achievements.
Since late 2013, when it became a member of Mount Grace Hospitals, a dynamic and growing healthcare management group, the FDMMC has transformed into a bigger and better general hospital that continues to uphold its legacy of excellence in providing its patients with a warm, caring experience.
The Fe del Mundo Medical Center is on 11 Banawe Street, Quezon City. For more information, call (632) 712-0845 to 50 or visit www.fedelmundo.com.ph.
