(The Philippine Star) - December 17, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Gearing towards major expansion, Manila Doctors Hospital (MDH) formally introduced the new medical tower named after the father of MDH benefactor Dr. George S.K. Ty, with Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada leading the ribbon-cutting and blessing last Dec. 8.

Located along T.M. Kalaw street and overlooking Rizal Park, the Norberto Ty Medical Tower will function as the new home of more specialty centers, patient rooms and clinics.

The formal blessing for the grand lobby was succeeded by the unveiling of Don Norberto Ty’s bust. Estrada praised the hospital’s record of service under the stewardship of philanthropist-tycoon Ty. He also stressed his advocacy in innovating health systems to provide quality health assistance to the marginalized sector.

Present during the ceremony with Ty’s family were MDH administrators led by board chairman and acting president Antonio Abaca Jr. and Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings, Inc. president and CEO Augusto Palisoc Jr.

The new building is expected to increase MDH’s capacity from 300 to 500 beds and will add 160 parking slots. It will also house an additional 64 doctors’ clinics, offices and more medical, diagnostic services and specialty centers. With the completion of 18-story medical tower, targeted in 2016, the hospital is poised to become one of the leading providers of advanced but affordable healthcare services.
