Just where I'm located, there are 4 hospitals in a 2 kilometer radius. There are 2 hospitals along Katipunan Road near SSS Village. One is SDS Medical Center at the corner of Katipunan and Aquamarine St. This 4-storey hospital is relatively new and been around for 2 to 3 years. And ocassionally, it's being subcontracted by GMA 7 for some of their telenovelas when they need a hospital setting. My dad regularly visits this hospital as it is walking distance.
Less than a minute away to SDS also along Katipunan is the Immaculate Conception Hospital. This has been around for a long time as the managing physician here has been our family doctor since I was a kid. I've been admitted here around 10 years ago when I had dengue as well. I've seen the hospital grow and expand. The hospital now doubled in area than when it originally used.
Travelling from Katipunan to Sumulong Highway will lead you to the newest hospital in Marikina, the Marikina Valley Medical Center. The hospital which opened in 2004, is right beside the entrance to Vista Valley subdivision. This 6-storey hospital can handle a wide array of patients as they have a staff of doctors from every specialization.
And last within the area at the end of Sumulong Highway is the Amang Rodriguez Medical Center.
This public hospital is one, if not the biggest hospitals in Marikina City.
The hospital which is just across Marikina Sports Center, has been in operation for decades. This hospital is regularly seen or mentioned on TV as News crews regularly visit this hospital to report of any patients admitted. Wounded victims from vehicular accidents, crime or shootouts are usually brought here by default because it's the nearest hospital to city hall, the police station and Marikina's 166 Emergency Service.
There are many more hospitals within Marikina City. These 4 just happen to be close to each other. So if you're within the vicinity, you can easily choose which one to go to.
