World Citi Medical Center recently launched its colourful, playful, joy-filled, and kid-friendly Pediatric Floor. Children who are admitted here will be cared for by pediatricians who have specialized in different medical disciplines and exclusive-to-the-seventh-floor nurses; all committed to give optimal care and compassion in an environment that was designed to give Big Care for Little Ones.
OIC-CEO Raymond Patrick Guico said “the hospital wants a playful environment where kids won’t feel like they’re in a hospital. We have taken the time to design this space with the ultimate goal of taking away the fear from children and giving big care for little ones all the while being extremely mindful that the rates for hospitalization remain the same; no price increase for this upgrade.”
Professional Values and Ethics Development Director Grace Annabelle Navarro opened the program by leading the opening prayer. Mr. Guico gave the welcome remarks followed by Medical Director Dr. Margarita Santella-Jara for her message of congratulations. The ribbon-cutting ceremony followed suit with hospital President Arlyn Grace Guico, Medical Director Dr. Margarita Santella-Jara, Pediatrics Department Chairman Dr. Maedina Cruz, CFO Jesus H. Santiago, Department of Pediatrics Training Officer Kristine Marie Gutierrez, and Nursing Supervisor Annabelle “Bheng” Tuazon.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony thus ushered the dedication of the Pediatric Floor by Guest Pastor Reverend Cleophas Maurice B. Villareiz.
Ellie, the Caring Elephant reporting for Big Care duty was around to welcome guests and parents. Iron Man also made a cameo to the delight of the crowd.
Walking from room to room elicited such positive reviews from Mommy Bloggers Philippines, Tweeselmom, Rock in Style Momma, Dyosa the Momma, and Mommy Blogger Pehpot who also found the hospital CEO Mr. Guico to be such a welcoming and warm interviewee whose concern for delivering value for money and service beyond expectation shone through.
Beyond expectation it truly was: The rooms are all designed to make children feel like they aren’t in a hospital at all! The Pediatric Floor has its own nook of books and toys, a customized wheelchair and piped-in music. Children spending their birthdays-in-hospital will be cheered up by a specially-prepared cupcake and a bag of freebies.
During the launch, the Pediatric Department conducted free MMR and Hepatitis B vaccinations for children and a lecture for parents on keeping their children healthy.
