President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. recently led the briefing and site inspection of the Clark Multi-Specialty Medical Center (CMSMC) in Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.
The state-of-the-art medical facility is a result of collaboration of the Department of Health (DOH), the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), Pampanga Local Government Units (LGUs), in partnership with the private sector like the Bloomberry Cultural Foundation, Inc. (BCFI).
“We will not stop until every Filipino can say they have good access to quality healthcare.”
Marcos said that the CMSMC is not only part of his State of the Nation Address (SONA) priorities, but is also part of an important component of the administration’s Health Facility Enhancement Program (HFEP).
The HFEP also aims to widen access to quality healthcare services, especially for those in the underserved communities.
“That is the product of our relentless push for Universal Healthcare and we will not stop until every Filipino can say they have good access to quality healthcare. I cannot endure the sight of seeing a fellow Filipino suffer only because of the lack of facilities in our health system,” he stressed.
The CMSMC represents a significant step forward in the Philippines’ healthcare system, promising improved accessibility, advanced medical services, and a brighter future for the nation’s health.
The CMSMC features a comprehensive range of specialized departments, including Heart, Kidney, Cancer, and Pediatric Centers.

It will be constructed in a 5.7-hectare property along Prince Balagtas Avenue in Clark Freeport Zone that will be opened not only for patients from the provinces of Pampanga and the rest of Central Luzon but also from the Ilocos and Cagayan Valley regions and even Metro Manila.
“Rest assured this administration is determined to bring quality healthcare services closer to Filipino people. We will establish more primary healthcare facilities and specialty centers nationwide,” Marcos concluded.
