News: 20-M full-service medical center - 12 Apr 2008
SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—A medical and wellness facility, complete with diagnostic, surgical and therapeutic wards, opened here on Tuesday to offer both out-patient and surgery services to customers in the Subic Bay area and the rest of Luzon. 
The George Dewey Medical and Wellness Center (GDMWC), owned and operated by the George Dewey Medical College, is expected to put up medical, as well as recreational facilities worth $20 million, said Hermenegildo Atienza III, senior deputy administrator for business and investment of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).


Company officials said the medical center has a total of 50 hospital beds now, but 150 additional beds will be put up soon.


The facility has machines for ultrasound, dialysis, mammography, mobile X-ray, computerized tomography (CT) scan, blood coagulation analysis and field angiosenalography.


It also has laboratories for bacteriological and pathological tests, a blood bank and an automated chemiluminescence system (ACS).


Aside from medical facilities, the company will also put up a nursing home, gym, shopping center, swimming pool, bowling alley and billiards hall to be used by both patients and visitors alike.


Atienza said the new medical center project brings to three the number of business locators that have set up health and wellness-related facilities in Subic since last year.


He also said the newest project will “complement the SBMA’s business thrust of putting Subic at the cutting edge of industries associated with health, medical tourism and education.”
