Asia - Pacific Medical Center Bacolod, Inc.

(Formerly Allied Care Experts Medical Center – Bacolod, Inc.)

In the Heart of Sugarlandia

It all started with a vision of a man believing that the doctors’ income is only as good as their last patient and the realization of a paradigm shift needed in the hospital industry that doctors should wake up, realign themselves, build and manage their own hospitals, that the Allied Care Experts Medical Centers were founded.

The conceptualization and realization of the Asia-Pacific Medical Center Bacolod, Inc. (Formerly Allied Care Experts Medical Center – Bacolod Inc.) was rather providential from the first meeting of Dr. Amado C. Enriquez, Jr. and Dr. Ferjenel G. Biron over a cup of coffee and the collaboration with a group of medical professionals from the West Visayas State University, College of Medicine, Iloilo City. Mostly classmates, friends & batchmates, that the APMC Bacolod, Inc. group was organized.

The first meeting of the founders of APMC Bacolod, Inc. on March 13, 2016 held at the 21st Restaurant in Bacolod City with the Iloilo & Manila group, headed by the ACEMC Chairman Dr. Amado Manuel C. Enriquez, Jr. and APMC Iloilo, Inc. President, Dr. Ferjenel G. Biron, was a cascade of the ACE group of hospitals and how it came about.

On March 31, 2016, the meeting headed by Dr. Danilo C. Regozo and Dr. Meride D. Lavilla of ACEMC – Iloilo Inc. at Bob’s Restaurant, Bacolod City sealed the 25 local founders of the ACEMC – Bacolod Inc.

After series of meetings of the local, Iloilo & Manila group, ACEMC – Bacolod was incorporated by the Securities & Exchange Commission in July 4, 2017.

Finding a location for the Medical Center was the next huge task for the founders to accomplish. After 4 prospective locations & months of meetings with the lot owners, the ACEMC – Bacolod Inc. finally acquired the 1-hectare lot strategically located along the highway of Lacson St., beside the Ceres Northbound Terminal, Brgy. Bata, Bacolod City.

Deed of absolute sale of the land was signed by the owner, Mrs. Maria Luisa Lizares Lacson at the Trump Tower, Makati City. Finally, on September 18, 2018 Transfer Certificate Title was granted to ACEMC – Bacolod Inc. by the Registry of Deeds and on February 5, 2020 the Department of Assessment, Bacolod City sent the Notice of Assessment of Real Property on the Conversion from Agricultural Land to Industrial Land. The lot has been fully paid.

As the enthusiasm was building up among founders in the preparation for the Groundbreaking, meetings & future activities, a need to have an office was addressed. Blessing of the ACEMC – Bacolod Inc. Business Center located at Room 4 Ground Floor MC Metroplex Bldg., BS Aquino Drive, Bacolod City came on August 24, 2017, officiated by Rev. Fr. Arnold P. Deletina.
