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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
