Seamen’s Hospital Manila upgrades facilities

AMOSUP members and their dependents can avail of improved healthcare and medical services in the newly renovated areas of the main building

AMOSUP Seamen’s Hospital Manila completed the upgrade of major portions in the main building. The building’s ground floor lobby, the emergency room, and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology now have improved features and enhanced facilities.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, which took up the vacated room of the Outpatient Department, now commands a bigger space accommodating the department’s office, residents’ call room, and clinical consultations for 10 doctors at a time. The department has acquired new examination beds, new 3D ultrasound machine and six new units of fetal monitors with LCD display.

The emergency room became more spacious as it occupied the former OB-Gyne clinic area. The room can take in three patients at a time at the cubicles and isolation area. The department acquired new examination beds, transport stretchers, cardiac monitors, and OR light for minor procedures. A bigger counter for patients’ admission and staff work is also accessible.

The ground floor lobby was renovated to adapt to the new look of the other offices in the building while maintaining its classic Spanish-inspired concept and design. The reception area is now fully air-conditioned, making it more comfortable for patients who are waiting to be served by the respective departments.

The lobby’s reception area features new padded benches where patients can sit and wait. They may also watch TV shows or monitor their queues on the bigger screens installed.

The Seamen’s Hospital’s renovated and modernized facilities was inaugurated last 02 October 2019. The ceremonial ribbon-cutting was led by AMOSUP president Dr. Conrad F. Oca, with ITF general secretary Stephen Cotton as the guest-of-honour. The project is part of AMOSUP’s commitment to upgrade the hospital’s capabilities to be able to improve the quality of healthcare services delivered to the union’s general membership and their legal dependents.

The upgrade follows the similar improvement made in other facilities such as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Maternity Section, which were inaugurated in February 2019. SF
