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

FOR MOTHERS AND BABIES


Lorma as a breastfeeding facility
To promote optimal feeding of infants and intensify the bonding between mother and child, Lorma has adopted the rooming-in policy. This policy encourages mothers to breastfeed on demand and discourages dependence on milk substitutes. This policy is in line with the DOH’s Philippine Infant and Young Child Feeding Strategic Plan of Action for 2011-2016.
For mothers and babies visiting the hospital for consultations, an aircondi-tioned out-patient breastfeeding room is available on the second floor of the west wing building. This room provides the mother and child the comfort and privacy they need. Just contact the Breastfeeding Support Group at 072-700-0000 local 143 or talk to the nurse at NICU Transition Room for the use of the facility.


NICU Transition Room
Renovated on May 28, 2008, the former Lorma Nursery is now transformed into a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Transition Room. It is equipped with machines like Ventilators, Radiant warmer, Incubator, Cardiac Monitor, Syringe pump, and other equipment to provide better care to newly born sick babies. An electric breast pump and a refrigerator for milk storage are also available.
For babies with communicable diseases, an Isolation room is readily available for use. In-patient mothers with infants may also avail of the breastfeeding room in the NICU Transition Room as needed. Sterile hospital gown, cap and slippers are provided upon entry to the Room.
The NICU Transition Room is manned by highly trained and competent nurses 24/7 to ensure better healthcare to infants.

 

July 22, 2013 -- The Department of Health has accredited Lorma Medical Center as Mother-Baby Friendly Hospital. Lorma is the first private hospital in the Region to achieve this accreditation based on the criteria set by the World Health Organization and the UNICEF.

The Mother-Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global effort for improving the role of maternity services to enable mothers to breastfeed their newborn. It aims at improving the care of pregnant women, mothers and newborns at health facilities that provide maternity services for protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding. By doing so, infants need not be dependent on milk substitutes and infant mortality could be reduced. The Lorma Breastfeeding Support Group was formed to educate the public and mothers on the benefits and management of lactation. The group also implements the mother and newborn rooming-in policy of the hospital and supervises designated breastfeeding areas for employees. For more info on Lorma Breastfeeding Support Group, please contact Ms. Jonalyn Padilla, the BF Counselor, at 0916-6872434 or call our Breastfeeding Hotline at 072-700-0000 local 143.
