CLARK FREEPORT — Advanced techniques and approaches are being applied as Clark becomes a center for innovative medical prevention and treatment not just for the Feeeport but also for Central amd Northern Luzon areas.
Making this Freeport not only a premiere business hub but also a nucleus of modern medical facilities, the executives of The Medical City Clark (TMCC) recently announced that they will be having the first Genomics facility in the region.
During the Talk Widus monthly press conference, TMCC President and CEO Dr. Almario Jabson shared that this new facility will allow early detection of common and even dreaded diseases like cancer, kidney and cardio-vascular problems.
Jabson said that they are now leaning towards the provision of more modern facilities that will bring forth better health and lifestyle to the public.
“We will focus on the propensity for cardiovascular and kidney diseases and cancer. The whole concept (of Genomics) is for TMC Clark to be able to tell someone at age of 20 or 30 years old the propensity to these diseases based on chromosomal patterns. From there, we can also help in nutritional and lifestyle support. If not preventive, we should be able to delay (diseases), ” Jabson said.
Jabson also mentioned that TMCC is being poised as a full- fledged referral center.
With this vision, patients from the rest of Central and Norther Luzon area expected to turn to this Freeport in the availment of various medical services.
Meanwhile, TMCC Medical director Dr. Jacqueline Angeles added that aside from their new facility they are also offering extensive programs and various services.
“We now have so many services which makes TMC Clark very different from other hospitals,” she said.
