According to HealthExecNews.com, which describes itself as a health care information network and daily publication catering the needs of health care executives, “SLMC has received international accreditation and is recognized as one of the best hospitals in Asia and the entire world.  As such, it regularly receives patients from around Asia, Micronesia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.”

“This hospital holds 650 patient beds, with almost half of those available as fully-furnished, private suites with televisions and other modern conveniences to make every visit as comfortable as possible,” it added.

St. Luke’s Medical Center, which first established itself as an esteemed health care institution in Quezon City before opening its world-class facilities in Global City January of 2010, currently ranks 11th in a list of  25 prestigious hospitals around the world. Hospitals in the United States dominated the list with Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, California bagging the top spot.

According to its website (http://www.stlukesmedicalcenter.com.ph/index.php), SLMC’s Medical Arts Building and nursing tower open “to a grand hotel-like lobby with a concierge and front desk officers ready to assist patients and guests.” The hospital also has 60 Customer Care Officers “at the patient’s beck and call.”

 SLMC welcomed its inclusion in the list, noting it was the first time that a Philippine hospital was included.

    Does anyone actually have a step by step instruction on how to make biloo biloo? I have tried before, and either used too much vanilla and not enough Jack fruit. I want to try again:).

    I dunno about that. But when my best friend’s dad was admitted there for about a week, he was a bit disappointed with the nursing service. If the hospital is supposedly world class, then it should be able to compete with the standards being upheld by first nation countries.
    There was no bedside care, and all the nurses did was to pass medications.

    I meant first world, not first nation. My bad.
