The Medical City (otherwise known by its acronym as TMC) is a tertiary care hospital in the Philippines where its health care complex serves some 40,000 in-patients and 400,000 out-patients annually. TMC has a medical staff of over 1,000 physicians complemented by 2,200 workers engaged in allied medical, administrative and support services.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The hospital's main facility is located on a 1.5-hectare property along Ortigas Avenue, almost within the business district of Ortigas Center in Pasig City, Metro Manila. Composed of 115,000 square meters of floor space, it includes two Nursing Towers which can be fitted for up to 800 beds. The two towers are joined by a Podium, bridgeways, and a Medical Arts Tower. The 18 floors of the Medical Arts Tower house 280 doctors' clinics and select commercial spaces, while located within the six-floor Podium are diagnostic and intervention facilities as well as support and administrative offices.

The hospital also has a three-level basement parking accommodation for over a thousand vehicles. The complex is also equipped with a broad range of security features, an advanced building management system, and biosafety features incorporated into sensitive patient areas.[2]
