The Medical City Launches Center for Gender Health and Wellness

Access to comprehensive and quality health care is one of the vital rights of any individual. It should, first and foremost, serve all colors and harness gender-sensitivity practices within the community. As a way of forwarding this cause, The Medical City launches the Center for Gender Health and Wellness which is designed to provide holistic gender sensitive health care to members of the LGBTIQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, plus) in order to maximize their overall health, psychological well-being, and self-fulfillment.

The Center provides services and packages that are catered to the LGBTIQ+ community’s needs to aid them in actualizing their chosen gender identities. Its health care services utilize a multidisciplinary approach, involving primary care, mental health services (ex. assessment, counseling and psychotherapy), hormonal and endocrine therapy, gynecologic and urologic care, reproductive options, and surgical treatments, as needed.

It also offers different programs and services that aim to provide members and families of the LGBTIQ+ community to receive the proper care that they need to support them as they go along in their journeys. The Center for Gender Health and Wellness is comprised of various specialists who are highly-trained in their own specializations, specifically in endocrinology, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, pediatrics and wellness. Also included in the team of experts are infectious diseases specialists who will counsel, test and treat infections, and surgery specialists who will help in counseling and assessing risks and benefits of procedures which include gender-affirming surgeries.

The center is located at the 6/F, Wellness and Aesthetics Institute of The Medical City, a complex separate from the main hospital with its own elevators and a relaxing interior supplied with laminar airflow to reduce risk of airborne contamination. It provides a safe and undiscriminating space where individuals can access services on Sexual Wellness, Transgender Wellness, Hypogonadism, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Fertility and Menopause.

It is now here to pave the way for individuals to make their gender their choice and for them to be able to transition to their preferred gender roles with the utmost care and support that they need.

    Couldn’t be happier to see this! Yes to inclusivity!

  5. As a gay man, this makes me proud to see something like this exist. We are truly moving forward as a society and finally we have a place for people within our community to get access to the healthcare they need. Will totally support this!!

  6. Khryz says:

    Kudos for this initiative TMC. I am sure the LGBTIQ+ community is celebrating right now.

  7. dawnlyndelle says:

    It’s good that TMC has this program. I used to work in an agency that had a lot of women who suffered from PCOS. Will take note of this.

  8. Prado Arturo Navarro Bognot says:

    Yehey to holistic gender sensitive health care to members of the LGBTIQ+. Hopefully this can help maximize their overall health and psychological well-being (I remember reading that gays are somewhat prone to committing suicide).

  9. happyandbusy says:

    This is nice naman from Medical City. I know some members of the LGBTQ+ na shy sometimes mag pa check up kase nga they are “gay.” There shouldn’t be any discrimination lalo na about sa health.

  10. This is a great program for all of us. I hope this will bring enough awareness to everyone.

  11. Jaimie says:

    Equal treatment for everyone and without prejudice to gender. That’s good.

  15. Nikki says:

  16. Camille says:

    This is the campaign i attended to so close to my heart. Kudos to TMC

  17. Adam Belda says:

  18. Adam Belda says:

    Finally we have this campaign! Sana nakaattend ako dito 😦

  19. Jean Ricamata says:

    This is such a great package galing talaga ng TMC

  20. This is such a nice campaign! Yes to equality!

  21. Evalyn Atayde says:

    Ok to ah! At dapat naman tlaga para sa lahat. May karapatan ang bawat isa sa atin !

  22. The programme of this medical facility is very timely with today’s emphasis on gender inclusivity. Tama naman, health benefits should be for everyone regardless of their preferences.

    Gusto ko yung mental health services kasi marami ang nakakaranas din ng depression, bullying and discrimination na pwede maka affect sa psychosocial well- being ng isang tao.
