The Women’s Wellness Tribute is an annual activity that brings the department’s seasoned, skilled, and experienced OB-GYNEs closer to the community by opening some of the hospital facilities and offering services for free.
More than a hundred women received free anemia and bone density screening, breast examination and consultation. They also availed of huge discounts on breast and transvaginal ultrasound and Pap smear at the 5th Floor Executive Lounge of World Citi Med in celebration of the department’s 22nd anniversary. The department’s celebration proves that in the evolving era of the OB-GYNE along with its specialized care and quality of medical services, the Department’s 22nd year celebration proves that women from all walks of life have access to World Citi Med’s modern equipment, expert doctors, as well as avail of important screenings that keep them in the pink of health.
Women-centric at its core because of the pioneering efforts of highly-regarded president and matriarch of World Citi Med, Arlyn Grace V. Guico’s mandate of elevating women’s health above all played a huge part in the strength and longevity of the OB-GYNE’s 22 years.
President Guico, in her opening remarks said, “The advantage we have as medical professionals is still human touch. What we can do in the face of advances in medical equipment is to make a difference in how we care and give care to our patients. Today is proof of the care that we give at sa araw na ito na para sa kababaihan, kayo ang aming bida.”
Dr. Reymond A. Mora, World Citi Med Assistant Medical Director for Clinical Services and Patient Care shares he “is grateful, privileged, and fortunate to witness the galvanized efforts of OB-GYNE Department Chairman Dr. Ma. Lorcelli Parado, Training Officer Dr. Joana Pauline Chua-Ursua, committee chairs, organizers, and partners who are all more than eager to get the day’s services going for the women who showed up…”
Dr. Mora further added how proud he is “of the gifted OB-GYN residents and consultants who selflessly give their time in honor of the great and loving women present here today.”
