This is the receiving area of the presidential suite. Nice, isn't it?
Amenities in this room includes a very big flat TV, a nice bathroom, nice bed , refrigerator, telephone, mini dining area and of course, it's wi-fi connected ( the whole third floor actualy).
The room is said to be costing from Php4,000 to 4,500/day. Cheaper compared to other high end hospitals where presidential suites are reportedly costing up to Php20,000 or higher.
If somebody gets sick and checks in at this room , we might just as well say, Indulge and pamper yourself ! instead of the traditional, get well soon!
Their private room complete with flat TV also.
The lucky bloggers with the Hospital Administrator, Sir Tony Veneracion
In addition, the whole staff of this unit underwent several trainings (Personality Development and TQM included) before they are being deployed. So expect for outmost customer service.
The new unit boasts of having their own butler too, are we talking about hospital here?
Kudos to the premier healthcare institution of Gensan, the St. Elizabeth Hospital!
Thank you for the innovations on healthcare provision.
