A Fijian delegation has visited two top Philip­pines hospitals and looked at Executive Health Ser­vices they offer.

Speaker Dr. Jiko Luveni led her entourage which consisted of parliamentarians Alexan­der O’Connor, Mikaele Leawere and Fiji’s Ambassador to Japan Isikeli Mataitoga.

They visited Cardinal Santos Medical Centre and St Lukes In­ternational Hospital, both in the Philippines capital, Manila.

The purpose was to view their Executive Health Management Services offered to overseas VIP dignitaries and people in gen­eral.

Several of our Pacific neigh­bours, including Papua New Guinea, have in the past sent their Members of Parliament to the two medical institutions for health management reviews and treatment.

St Luke’s is recognised as one of the leading and most respect­ed health care institutions in the Philippines and is on par with most advanced hospitals around the world.

Cardinal Santos Medical Cen­tre is a hospital run by the Cath­olic Church and is also one of the most successful hospitals in the Philippines.

Both hospitals are well known for their expertise in Cardiology, Neurosurgery, Oncology, Pediat­rics, Obstetrics and Gynecology and other rehabilitative medi­cine.

It was noted that one of the Fia­jian Teachers’ Unions also send their members to Cardinal San­tos medical centre for special treatment. FijiCare health in­surance has also used Cardinal Santos for cardiac (heart) and oncology (cancer) treatment.

The Fijian delegation is cur­rently in the Philippines to at­tend the Asia-Pacific Parliamen­tary Forum on Global Health.
