ZAMBOANGA CITY/22 July 2016 by Yen Blanco-Delgado—Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) members living in Tetuan, this city, can soon avail of a special hospital confinement program of West Metro Medical Center called West Metro Cares.
Said program is to provide quality health care to members of vulnerable groups in Tetuan and is available to adults, 18-59 years old, with internal medical diagnosis. All qualified beneficiaries will be admitted as ward patients.
West Metro personnel will record this community’s 4P beneficiaries’ medical history and enroll them in the West Metro Cares program, which is based on PhilHealth rates.

To avail of the program, the patient must secure a referral issued by the Tetuan Barangay Captain to be presented to West Metro Medical Center Admitting Office together with his or her ID and PhilHealth membership card.
Tetuan Barangay Captain John Dalipe said this is the first time that a private hospital extended a big help to the most vulnerable sector in the village, especially since Tetuan is one of the heavily-populated communities in Zamboanga City.
Ramon H. Diaz, President and Chief Executive Officer of West Metro said that this program is offered to Tetuan 4Ps initially because West Metro Medical Center is located in Tetuan.
“We are called on to help. But when we help, it is best if we don’t look too far. We should prioritize those who are near to us,” Diaz stated. (Yen Blanco-Delgado)
