MediCard, a leading health maintenance organization provider in the country, now offers 2D echo and spirometry at its free-standing clinic in Cebu City. These non-invasive tests are the newest addition to its comprehensive medical services available for both MediCard members and non-members.
2D echo or two-dimensional echocardiogram uses an ultrasound to take 2D images of the heart, including its chambers, valves and blood vessels. This test can determine abnormalities in the heart’s structure and cardiac functioning. Spirometry, meanwhile, measures the amount and speed of the air a patient blows out. This method can assess the lungs’ performance and can diagnose various breathing problems.
Aside from 2D echo and spirometry, MediCard Cebu also offers nebulization, X-ray, hematology, microscopy, serology, and chemistry testing. It also provides consultations on internal medicine, otolaryngology (ENT), cardiology, pulmonology, diabetology, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics; medical evaluation, physical examination; immunization, executive check-up; and minor surgery. All these outpatient services are available for rates lower than most private health clinics and diagnostic centers.
As the first free-standing clinic of MediCard outside Luzon, MediCard Cebu aims to deliver the same high-quality healthcare that people in Metro Manila enjoy. Apart from providing family-friendly medical services, the clinic also employs licensed and expertly trained doctors and staff and uses state-of-the-art facilities.
MediCard Cebu is located at the ground floor of JRDC Bldg. Pres. Osmeña Blvd. Capitol Site, Cebu City. For appointments and inquiries, call (032) 253-5031, (032) 253-6463 and (032) 253-1725 or visit its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MedicardCebu.
