Wazzup Pilipinas!

St. Luke’s Medical Center in the Philippines is the newest member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a network of independent health care providers committed to working together to benefit patients and their families.

This formal agreement gives St. Luke’s access to the latest Mayo Clinic knowledge and promotes collaboration among physicians. As a result of these shared resources, more St. Luke’s patients can get answers to complex medical questions close to home and at no additional charge.

“Our membership in the Mayo Clinic Care Network brings us closer to realizing our vision of becoming an internationally recognized academic medical center,” says Edgardo R. Cortez, M.D., president and CEO, St. Luke’s Medical Center.“The services that we offer our patients, especially those with complex conditions, will be further enhanced to produce good clinical outcomes. All of these come at no additional cost to our patients.” 

As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, St. Luke’s will work with Mayo to share medical knowledge and clinical expertise. Local physicians will have access to information and services, including:

eConsults that enable St. Luke’s physicians to connect electronically with Mayo specialists for more input on a patient’s care 

AskMayoExpert, a database at the point of care that offers the latest Mayo Clinic-vetted information on the evaluation and treatment of medical conditions 

Health Care Consulting that enables St. Luke’s to learn more about the way Mayo Clinic operates and how its clinical, operational and business models are designed and implemented 

eTumor Board conferences that invite St. Luke’s physicians to present and discuss complex cancer cases with a multidisciplinary panel of Mayo specialists and other network members

St. Luke’s providers also can access Mayo’s extensive library of patient education materials and view archived Mayo Clinic grand rounds presentations that feature Mayo physicians and scientists.

“We are pleased to welcome St. Luke’s Medical Center to the Mayo Clinic Care Network,” says David Hayes, M.D., medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. “Patient-centered care is the foundation of both organizations. We look forward to working together to find new and innovative ways to enhance that care.”

With this collaboration, St. Luke’s reaffirms its leadership role in Philippine healthcare with the ultimate goal of providing the highest level of care for its patients.

St. Luke’s and other network members undergo a rigorous evaluation before joining the network. Members remain independent, but share Mayo’s commitment to improve the quality and delivery of health care. Launched in 2011, the network has more than 40 member organizations in the U.S., Mexico, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
