QualiMed is a network of healthcare facilities owned and operated by Mercado General Hospital, Inc. (MGHI) in partnership with Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI). The QualiMed Health Network operates using three facility formats: mall-based multi-specialty clinics, stand-alone ambulatory or day surgery centers, and full-service hospitals (from primary to quaternary).
All facilities under the QualiMed Health Network are designed to have an organized, cozy, and relaxed atmosphere. The intention is to promote a warm and engaging atmosphere where patients can interact with medical professionals and receive better medical advice and treatment. All QualiMed medical staff and professionals are trained to provide customer service where patient experience is a priority. Patient care is coordinated within the QualiMed Health Network; in cases where patients need to be transitioned across different facilities, management of transfer can be easily and actively managed.
These are primarily mall-based clinics located in Ayala Malls. The clinics serve as primary care clinics focused on providing primary preventive and promotive care. The clinics are less crowded than your usual hospital facility. According to studies, around 65-80% of patients need only primary care services. For example, there are recorded cases when children die of diarrhea or pneumonia in crowded hospitals because they are not given urgent treatment. Patients waste precious time lined up in hospitals, whereas they can be treated promptly at primary care clinics.
AMBULATORY OR DAY SURGERY CENTERS
Ambulatory or day surgery centers are healthcare facilities offering surgery services that don’t need admission; procedures are performed under an outpatient setting. This is a practical choice for patients because they won’t need to pay admission fees and other related charges. The ambulatory or day surgery center is capable of performing same-day surgeries focused on minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopic, endoscopic, and arthroscopic surgeries. With the advent of minimally invasive surgeries, surgical incisions have become smaller resulting in faster patient recovery.
FULL-SERVICE HOSPITALS (PRIMARY TO QUATERNARY)
Full-service hospitals offer the most comprehensive healthcare services in the QualiMed Health Network. Besides having hundreds of beds for inpatients, they have capabilities for emergency rooms, major surgeries, intensive care units, and the whole gamut of specialty and sub-specialty doctors.
