The 33rd anniversary of the Calamba Medical Center was a significant and memorable occasion held last June 17, with the blessing of the CMC Cancer Center Brachytherapy machine, CT scan, and C-arm of the cancer cell graced by its President and CEO Jose O. Juliano, Ph.D.
Doctors that had been with CMC since it was planned and established in 1989 were also present.
Physicians from other hospitals, bank managers, and friends of CMC from the city government, priests and bishops from different dioceses, and workers of the hospital celebrated with them in their Filipiniana attire.
The CMC is the most complete hospital and has the most modern medical facilities in South Luzon.
Juliano believes the creation and operation of the CMC hospital, CMC Eye Center, CMC Kidney Center, CMC Dialysis Center, CMC Event Center, and CMC Cancer Center contributed to the hospital being called the “Health Care City of The South.”
The event was followed by the blessing of Our Lady of Lourdes Columbary, with Juliano noting: “This is the best celebration and a very important anniversary because after our 30th year, the (COVID-19) pandemic came, and they skipped two years to celebrate.”
The Calamba Medical Center is committed to providing holistic, multidisciplinary compassionate, cost-effective, and individualized cancer care in the Southern Tagalog Region.
It also aims to promote cancer prevention, education, and awareness among the general public and create a supportive environment for every cancer patient.
