ABS-CBN News on APMC Bacolod’s IPO

ABS-CBN NewsPosted at Mar 23 2022 10:32 AM ABS-CBN News on APMC Bacolod’s IPO The SEC said APMC Bacolod’s net proceeds from the offer could reach P997.52 million which will be allocated for the building and construction, loan payment, working capital and expenses related to its P2.6-billion medical facility. The 6 tertiary hospitals currently operating in the city has a combined capacity of about 1,200 beds only. Although one may argue that this meets the needs of over half a million Bacolodnons, it is vastly inadequate to serve the 2 1/2 million Negrenses living in the occidental side alone. APMC is currently constructing a 248-bed hospital located at Lacson St., Brgy. Bata, Bacolod City in Negros Occidental, the SEC said. Philippine Stock Exchange president Ramon Monzon earlier said 2022 is expected to be a good year for capital raising following a “fantastic” 2021 despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Source:

By: Dr. John Clifton U. Martyr ACEMC – Bacolod Acquires One Hectare Property Allied Care Experts Medical Center – Bacolod, Inc. (ACEMC – Bacolod) closed a deal acquiring a one hectare lot in Barangay Bata, Bacolod City which will be the future site of an ultra-modern hospital. A deed of absolute sale was signed last April 2, 2018 between Mrs. Ma. Luisa Lizares -Lacson, lot owner, and ACEMC – Bacolod representatives, Dr. Ferjenel Biron and Dr. Julian Rizaldy Raca at a Trump Tower in Makati, Metro Manila. After several months of consultations and meetings, ACEMC – Bacolod finally settled on the property at Barangay Bata because of its strategic location near the boundary of Bacolod City and Talisay City. An added bonus is its proximity to the northbound bus terminal and various subdivisions. Initial meeting was conducted with the lot owner in July 13, 2017 at PSE building. According to Dr. Raca, Vice-Chairman of ACEMC – Bacolod, Mrs. Lacson agreed to sell the property because she liked the idea of having a hospital in the area.

Bridging the Gaps of Healthcare Needs in the Island

By: Dr. Jose Joel B. Yap Bridging the Gaps of Healthcare Needs in the Island The last 5 years saw one hospital rising in the south while another is opening soon in the east and along North Drive the biggest of them all is set to become even bigger. Will the soon-to-rise ACE Medical Center be viable? According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the ideal bed to population ratio should be 2 hospital beds per 1,000 population. While the national average is a dismal 1 bed per 1,000 people, in a 2008 census, Western Visayas which is supposedly one of the more developed regions in the country has only 0.78 bed per 1,000 individuals! That is way below the nation’s average. No wonder every time we have a Dengue season all our hospitals in the city are full to the brim with Emergency Rooms all crowded with patients.            The 6 tertiary hospitals currently operating in the city has a combined capacity of about 1,200 beds only. Although one may argue that this meets the needs of over half a million Bacolodnons, it is vastly inadequate to serve the 2 1/2 million Negrenses living in the occidental side alone. In a paper “The Philippine Health System at a Glance”, the Department of Health states that the number of hospital beds is a good indicator of health service availability. Adding all the hospital beds of the various private and government hospitals in the 6 districts of Negros Occidental to those within the lone district of Bacolod City will still fall short of the approximately 5,000 hospital beds needed to meet the WHO criteria. This makes quality health care not readily available to most Negrosanons. ACE Medical Center – Bacolod is envisioned to fill-up this wide chasm. And as a ultra-modern health care institution, it will also bring state-of-art facilities & services within the reach of our patients. So do we need another hospital in the city? Definitely yes! Patients as well as the medical community will benefit from these developments and we can all look forward to a future with ultra-modern health care deliveries right in our community.

The ACE of Sugarlandia

By: Ma. Ivy M. Vasquez – Malata, M.D., FPPS Soon to Rise: The ACE 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 the Allied Care Experts Medical Centers was founded. The conceptualization and realization of the ALLIED CARE EXPERTS MEDICAL CENTER – BACOLOD INC. started when a group of friends & batchmates from the West Visayas State University College of Medicine, Iloilo City headed by Dr. Ferjenel G. Biron, the President of the ACEMC–ILOILO INC. sent out Dr. Danilo C. Regozo, Dr. Meride D. Lavilla and Dr. Fredilyn G. Samoro to Bacolod City to reach out and invite classmates & friends to organize the group. The months of February and March of 2016 were quite busy for the group, going to and from Iloilo and Bacolod, holding meetings, until finally, Dr. Salve Regina S. Jesena and Dr. Julian Rizaldy C. Raca, Jr. of Bacolod City accepted the challenge to lead the ACEMC–BACOLOD INC.             On March 13, 2016 the first meeting of the founders of ACEMC – BACOLOD founders was 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 President of ACEMC–ILOILO, INC. Dr. Ferjenel G. Biron. The Manila group presented the Allied Care Experts group of hospitals and how it came about. On March 31, 2016, the meeting with Dr. Danilo C. Regozo and Dr. Meride D. Lavilla held at Bob’s Restaurant, Bacolod City sealed the local founders for the ACEMC – BACOLOD namely as follows: Dr. Abad, Alben Teodoro T. Dr. Achurra, Alexander Kent T. Dr. Concel, Leopoldo M. Dr. Dy-Villanueva, Ma. Teresa Dr. Encarnacion, Joseline C. Dr. Espinosa, Wendell Z. Dr. Galve, Gregorio L. Dr. Gebusion, Anthony C. Dr. Germinal, Rodolfo F. Dr. Jesena, Salve Regina S.

After series of meetings of the local, Iloilo & Manila group, ACEMC-BACOLOD was incorporated on July 4, 2017. Finding a location for the Medical Center was the next huge task for the founders to accomplish. After 4 prospective locations and months of meeting with the lot owners, the ACEMC – BACOLOD INC. finally acquired the strategic site located along the highway of Lacson St., beside the Ceres Northbound Terminal, Bgy. Bata, Bacolod City. On July 13, 2017 partial payment was made for the 1 hectare lot of the ACEMC-BACOLOD INC. As the enthusiasm was building up among founders in the promotion and reservation of the common shares, 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., B. S. Aquino Drive, Bacolod City came on August 24, 2017, officiated by Rev. Fr. Arnold P. Deletina. The historical and successful groundbreaking ceremony on September 10, 2017 in the future hospital site was led by the ACEMC Board Chairman Dr. Amado Manuel C. Enriquez, Jr. and ACEMC – BACOLOD INC. President Dr. Ferjenel G. Biron attended by Bacolod City Mayor Evelio R. Leonardia, Congressmen Greg G. Gasataya and Joseph Stephen S. Paduano, invited guests, investors and founding doctors. Enormous task is expected and ahead of us but we are holding on to the vision of our founders & leaders, with dedication, faith in God and a burning passion to work together to cater to the people of Negros of their medical & health needs. Soon will rise a 250 bed capacity tertiary care medical center that is state of the art and of international standards, in the heart of Sugarlandia.
