THE Medical City (TMC) Clark recently entered into a community partnership agreement with the Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom) in keeping with its mission to provide world-class healthcare services to every Filipino.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by TMC Clark President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Almario Jabson and Nolcom Commander Lieutenant General Arnulfo Marcelo Burgos Jr. during ceremonies held at the TMC Ambulatory Surgical Center.
Under the agreement, TMC Clark will extend to Nolcom personnel special discounted rates, both for in and outpatient services. These discounted rates will likewise be extended to the declared dependents of Nolcom personnel.
Burgos thanked TMC Clark management for acknowledging "the sacrifices that our soldiers make in order to ensure the safety of the Filipino people."
“Apart from the discounts, the quality healthcare services that TMC Clark offers is already of great help to our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who are constantly putting their lives at risk to ensure that peace and development in northern and central Luzon are sustained,” Burgos said.
He also recognized the strong bond between medical practitioners and military personnel in the fulfillment of their sworn duties.
"Aside from our mandate of defending our state and sovereignty and defeating the communist terrorists, your soldiers have been working with you hand in hand in the fight against Covid–19. This challenging time has indeed established a strong bond between us. It is this bond that makes us more resilient, a bond developed under one common goal – to serve and protect the well-being of the people in this part of the country,” he added.
Meanwhile, Dr. Jabson said the hospital has always believed that every Filipino has the right to avail of world-class healthcare services and intends to extend this privilege to more people.
“TMC Clark aims to deliver quality care to our soldiers, the police, the teachers, and the marginalized in the society. TMC provides world-class care to each and every Filipino. The partnership is in line with the Universal Health Care program of the government,” he said.
