Good Morning to one and all

  I am one of the patients of your prestigious Medical Center last Tuesday, January 27, who had undergone Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). I wish to thank all the staff/employees who extended their unselfish and dedicated assistance while I was at the Center.  Special mention to Dr. Hidegunda Santos, Medicard coordinator, the HMO staff (the two ladies from the billing section), Mr. Oliver Hufana and his staff (MRI section), and the nursing students who assisted at the MRI section.


Sometimes a happy face
Takes us to a cheerful place,
Where all the sadness
Turns into gladness
And troubles fade way...
Worries and fears dissipate
And happiness ensues...
So here's a bunch of happy smiles
Especially for you ALL …

 Have a nice DAY !!

“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!!!

Thanks doctor!

“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

Wednesday, May 10, 2006, San Fernando City, La Union – Lorma Medical Center today announced the opening of its new emergency department; the latest phase in the hospital’s recent expansion efforts. The Lorma Emergency Department combines the most advanced medical and diagnostic facilities with a patient-centered design, creating a new standard of emergency care in La Union in which patients receive the highest quality care in a comfortable and convenient setting.

"We are proud to offer our patients and community 21st century emergency medicine in a wonderful new 21st century facility," said Dr. Rufino L. Macagba, Jr., M.D., president of Lorma Incorporated. "We have cutting-edge technology in a medical setting where every second counts. And in keeping with our long standing reputation for patient-centered, compassionate care, we wanted our emergency department to be utilized in large part by the physicians and nurses who use it every day."

Some of the new facility’s key features include:

  • A unique floor plan that provides clinicians with immediate access to the equipment, technology and staff they need to care for critically ill and injured patients for whom a difference of a few minutes is a matter of life and death.
  • An expanded triage area (from one to three rooms) enables the staff to assess patients and assign them to rooms more quickly.
  • Centralized registration that makes registration faster and more convenient for patients.
  • Soft, recessed lighting, curb side drop-off, private patient bays, a two-story glass atrium waiting room, which is furnished with comfortable chairs set out in small nooks appropriate for quiet conversation and other features incorporated in the facility’s design to enhance patients’, families’ and friends’ comfort and convenience.
  • Easy access to the imaging department that includes a dedicated on-site high-speed computed axial tomography (CT) scanner. In addition, an MRI scanner is located in close proximity to the emergency department, giving clinicians immediate access to the latest in diagnostic imaging technologies.
  • A helipad on the roof of the building housing the new emergency department and a new elevator to expedite the transfer of critically ill and injured patients who were brought in on helicopter ambulances.

"Here in San Fernando City, we are home to the best health care in Region I," says Allan A. Alvarez, Executive Director of Marketing and Administrative Services. “This new emergency department will keep our residents safe and healthy in the years to come."

“As a physician, I know first hand how important the design of the facility is to our ability to provide high quality and compassionate care to our patients," says Juan V. Komiya, M.D., Medical Director at Lorma Medical Center. "The opening of our new emergency department is the result of careful planning, design, and construction and the dedicated involvement of an incredibly diverse team of people here. Most importantly, our patients will benefit from the efforts."

Located on the ground floor of the new medical arts building, the new emergency department is accessible directly from the national highway. The new facility replaces the former emergency department which, is to be transformed to become the home of the new imaging and diagnostic center. The continued upgrade of Lorma Medical Center’s facilities has helped assure that all residents of Region I will have access to high-quality emergency care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The opening of the new emergency department has been timed to coincide with a host of other campus moves. Most notably, the new MRI Center (the first and only in La Union) and the completion of the new administration wing. Other moves involving patient services have taken place or will take place during the summer as the first phase of the medical center’s campus redesign is completed. The campus redesign is being implemented to make the medical center more convenient for receiving and providing care – as well as having a more attractive, unified and efficient medical facility. ## AA
