P120-M Ormoc Doctors’ Hospital starts construction, opens 2012

by EVMail News on January 31, 2011

Doctors and specialists practicing in Ormoc City pose with Dr. Potenciano Larrazabal Jr. and wife Zeny (7th and 8th from left) with the perspective of the soon-to-be constructed Ormoc Doctors’ Hospital at the background during the groundbreaking held Sunday, January 23, in the morning. The doctors are would be investors to the hospital, which will be selling shares of stocks soon.

OWNERS OF the Cebu Doctors’ Hospital, majority shares of which are owned by the Potenciano wing of the Larrazabal family here, held a groundbreaking this Sunday morning (January 23) at the site of the future Ormoc Doctors’ Hospital which is scheduled to open early next year.
Dr. Potenciano Larrazabal Jr, president of Cebu Doctors Hospital, his wife Zeny and children, led the groundbreaking which was also attended by the other Larrazabal siblings and practicing doctors and specialists in Ormoc.
The “Ormoc Doc”, as what the family wants the hospital to be known, will offer the same quality service like “Cebu Doc”.
“It will have everything that Cebu Doc has – state-of-the-art hospital equipments, the latest monitors and tests, an MRI, a cardiovascular center, a dialysis center… everything”, said Dr. Gardenia Z. Larrazabal, who is touted to be the hospital’s medical administrator or director.
Dr. Gardenia Larrazabal added the hospital will be run like “Cebu Doc”, which has earned the reputation of one of the most advanced and modern hospitals in Asia. “We will train the doctors, nurses, staff and personnel there”, she said, adding that with the state-of-the-art “Ormoc Doc”, it will bring doctors of varied specialties over to practice in the city because the tools and tests they need is already available.
Dr. Chito Aviles, gastro-enterologist, said that the time for a hospital like Ormoc Doc has come. “We are already a referral center”, he said, explaining that many doctors in neighboring towns often refer their patients to Ormoc for tests and laboratory, including consulting the current crop of specialists now practicing here.
Meanwhile, it was learned that Ormoc Doc is targeted to be opened and operational on January 2012. The construction phase is divided into two. The structural or building construction phase which will take the next six months, while the finishing and furnishing phase will start right after. The contractor of the construction phase is MacBuilders Inc., managed by Engr. Francis Chua which is one of the biggest and reputable construction firms in the city.
It was also learned that the hospital would have 150 rooms and 200 beds. “There will be suite rooms, private rooms, semi-private, ordinary wards and even a charity ward”, said Dr. Larrazabal.
The hospital will have three floors with ample parking space on the ground floor interspersed between the doctors’ clinics.
Located on a 3,000-square meter property of the Larrazabals right smack at the city proper, the hospital building will occupy around 2,100 square meters or a total floor area of 6,300 square meters for all floors.
Mrs. Vicky Larrazabal-Locsin, former congresswoman of the 4th district of Leyte, said that their family’s equity on the hospital is the lot and the building. Some P120-million has been earmarked for the construction and furnishing, including state of the art equipment. They would also be selling shares to doctors in the city, for them to have a stake at the hospital.
She added they do not see any problem with the city’s having another hospital, saying they would just complement the existing four – the government-ran Ormoc District Hospital, the city-assisted Ormoc Maternity and Children’s Hopsital, the Gatchalian Hospital and the OSPA-Farmers Medical Center.
In fact, she said, “Ormoc Doc” was the realization of the aspirations of Ormoc doctors and specialists who saw the need for another hospital because the others were already getting 100 percent occupancy. “We felt the need, that is why a group of doctors approached the family to put up Ormoc Doc”, she said.
Mrs. Zeny Larrazabal added that Ormoc Doc is the sixth hospital the family owns. They have the Cebu Doc Main, the NorthGen, the SouthGen, Mactan Doctors’, and San Carlos Doctors, all in Cebu.
It was also learned from Mrs. Adelina Y. Larrazabal, school director of the family-owned San Lorenzo Ruiz College, that their graduates are priority hires of the hospital, “but of course, they will be screened according to their capability”. By Lalaine M. Jimenea

Good day!
I was able to passed by the ongoing construction last June and when I saw that it was the future Ormoc Doctor’s Hospital, I was glad that one of the best health care institution is finally in Region 8 and not that far from my hometown in Bato, Leyte.

Anyway with all due respect I wanted to ask on whereabouts of your hiring process. I am very much interested to submit an application as a staff nurse and hopefully be one of the people that will make a difference.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

More power.

Sincerely yours,
Aimee T. Remolador
