Hospitals in Cebu: (part 1)
Cebu is no puny when it comes to medical care as well as the sophisticated facilities that can indeed qualify as one of the best. Actually, the big three hospitals that I’m about to mention are not just the best in Cebu, but can be also considered as one of the best in the Philippines as well as achieving the world-class mark. The Cebu Doctors Hospital, Chong Hua Medical Hospital and Perpetual Soccour Hospital are simply at its best in terms of quality medical service, facilities and, of course, attentiveness and accuracy.
These hospitals in Cebu are considered by the Cebuanos themselves to have reached that peak into providing advanced medical services not only with the medical instruments but also the doctors that prove to be the best in the league.
Chong Hua Hospital
IN this first part, I’m going to talk about the most-heard of and reputable hospital in Cebu; Chong Hua Hospital. This establishment started, actually, as a Chinese-owned modern building for the Chinese community known as Associacion Benevola de Cebu. It simply evolved into a major hospital that caters to not only the Chinese community in Cebu but also the Cebuanos.
Chong Hua Hospital is located right beside Fuente Osmeña Boulevard and if you can simply raise your head above the eye-view, you can already see the towering building with the huge “Chong Hua Hospital” on it. Actually, there is a new building built recently and I decided to pay a visit to see how great the “feel” of the inside compared to the old one. I actually found it one-of-a-kind, it is impressively embellished with an ample amount of green glass flavored with dark wood paneling and a seemingly refreshing vibe of the whole interior.
The core group of Chong Hua Hospital may have decided to expand a little bit and spend a hefty amount to cater their patients’ needs. State-of-the-art equipments, advanced ultrasound machines and other medical equipments are just some of its upgrade. I even heard that they now have a sleep-disorder lab and that’s an absolutely good news to Cebuanos who have trouble sleeping out there, who have been suffering for quite some time now. And, of course, most of the standout doctors of Cebu are in Chong Hua Hospital to help aid the ill-stricken Cebuanos. Surgeons, neurologists, pharmacists and others are just some of Chong Hua’s crew in helping the Cebuanos in their medical needs.
