Qualimed: Quality health services made affordable

As parents, healthcare is one of our top considerations when it comes to searching for quality yet affordable providers.

A new network of health care facilities in the country was introduced to mom bloggers a couple of weeks ago. Qualimed is set to fulfill the three As–Accessibility, Affordability, and Appropriateness–as they give the best service to its clients.

Qualimed has accessible locations all over the country. We visited one of their facilities inside the PGH compound.

If you remember the Faculty of Medical Arts Building at PGH, you will recall it once housed the UPMC or University Physicians Medical Center. It's now known as Qualimed.

The building is declared a National Heritage Site, that's why you can see the old structure outside and the modern facilities inside. Details, like this, are preserved.

Their main service is providing quality primary care, but they have flagships in each of their facilities. In this case, the Manila branch’s flagship is their Surgery Center. The one opening in Iloilo will be a women and children’s center.

Here are some more facilities in the Manila branch:

Blood testing facility. The big one on the lift tests for thyroid problems. I can so relate because I used to have monthly blood tests for my hyperthyroid.
