A Spotlight on Healthcare Equity and Accessibility

Capitol Medical Center, Inc. (CMCI) proudly emphasizes the equity and accessibility of healthcare in the Philippines as it becomes the 10th Z Benefit Package contracted facility of PhilHealth (Philippine Health Insurance Corporation) and 25th nationwide for Kidney Transplantation. 

The Z Benefit Package for Kidney Transplantation is structured to offer financial support to qualified members undergoing kidney transplant procedures. This initiative is geared towards enhancing accessibility and affordability for PhilHealth members seeking critical and costly medical interventions.

Since the 1970’s CMCI has been one of the leading hospitals in the Philippines to perform kidney transplantation.  This significant milestone for the institution aligns with its rich heritage of being one of the first to perform successful living donor kidney transplants in the country as shared by Dr. Angel Joaquin M. Amante, head of CMCI Organ Transplant Center.

In 2003, CMC was the first transplant center to perform Laparoscopic Nephrectomy. The institution established an integrated program for Organ Donation, marking the first stand-alone organ procurement in the country in 2006.

Currently, the institution is armed with two comprehensive PhilHealth packages to support patients with renal disease. The hemodialysis treatment consisting of 156 dialysis sessions per year, and the Z Benefit Package where patients can be provided with the best care and world-class kidney transplantation procedure at reasonable cost.

Part of this journey are the tireless efforts of the esteemed doctors and nurses to achieve this partnership. With hard work and dedication, CMCI undoubtedly stands tall as the beacon of a high-quality healthcare facility, true to their call of providing Right care, Right Here.

This initiative reflects our unwavering commitment to make life-saving treatments more accessible and affordable to those in need of treatment. It embodies our collective dedication to enhancing patient care and supporting the journey to recovery and well-being,” emphasizes CMCI’s Medical Director, Dr. Jorge T. Logarta.
