A smiling face is the mirror of our body and can heal sick patients” – Last March I came here for check-up. I was then referred to Dr. Espinosa so I went to his clinic. He sent me back here for EEG. The staff downstairs at the front office did the EEG for me right away so I had the time to go back to Dr. Espinosa who interpreted the result. It was done so fast that we had the time to go back to Ilocos that same day. I thank the staff very much. To Lorma as a whole, thank you so much and may God bless you all. All the staff and employees of Lorma Hospital are very friendly. I’m very glad to see their smiling faces every morning. Keep up your good work!!!

“I have been supplied with newspapers everyday. I had been to big and modern hospital in Manila, and it’s only here that we are given newspaper.  Nursing personnel – prompt in doing things for patients’ comfort.  Very good big, and clean trash cans." 
- From Exec. Suite E

“My thanks to Dr. Gamboa and MCO in the ER who gave a helping hand during my life and death situation. I can’t forget all of you who gave me my second life and of course to our beloved God Almighty who used your hospital to help me survive. I was so satisfied. In behalf of my small kids, husband and my relatives, thank you very much! God bles you all!” – From 2A (Ward)

Lorma hospital has improved a lot when it comes to services. The personnel are so caring and they always offer a friendly smile. I am happy to see some interns who were my former students in high school. They are so cheerful and fresh looking which help the patients recover fast. LORMA EXCELLENT! – From Rm. 222

Kidney Transplant: The best option for end-stage

Most often, kidney transplantation is the best treatment option for patients with chronic and end-stage renal disease. A kidney transplant is an operation that places a healthy kidney in the body. The transplanted kidney takes over the work of the two kidneys that failed and one no longer need dialysis. Often,the new kidney will start making urine as soon as blood starts flowing through it. A successful kidney tranplant affords a new beginning for ESRD patients because it offers enhanced quality and duration of life.
A recipient receives a healthy kidney from a donor. Kidneys for transplantation come from either a deceased or a living donor.

Benefits of a Kidney Transplant

A successful kidney transplant has many potential advantages that contribute to an enhanced quality of life.
These include:

  • Freedom from life-long dialysis therapy
  • Increased energy
  • Fewer, if any, diet and fluid restrictions
  • Return to usual lifestyle
