Dr. Samuel Mendero is not a newbie when it comes to putting up a hospital as the Pagadian City Medical Center in Zamboanga del Sur is run by the family. But it took some persistent convincing in order for him to gain support in putting up his dream hospital in Cebu. And that dream is now becoming a reality.
“We are continuing what we have started…in giving the modern
people of the northern part of Cebu this medical center they certainly
deserved.” With these words, Dr. Samuel Mendero formally announced the upcoming
entry of Mendero Medical Center to the healthcare scene of Consolacion, Cebu.
No less than Consolacion town Mayor Teresa P. Alegado led the
welcoming of Mendero Medical Center to the progressive town of Consolacion
during the blessing last November 12, 2013 of the aforementioned 200-bed
capacity medical center. The Mendero Medical Center Consolacion Cebu, intended
to be a completely modern tertiary hospital serving those in the northern part
of Cebu is targeted to open before year’s end.

Many are awaiting the opening of this hospital as it will help address the shortage of hospitals in the north. Waiting to be utilized are several state-of-the art equipment including CT scan and incubators, a complete modern laboratory, ICU, four operating rooms, delivery rooms, and medical clinics among others. Together with competent doctors and healthcare personnel, these will help provide quality and affordable health care within reach to the people of Consolacion and beyond.
