St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC), in its commitment to deliver top-tier patient-centered care, steadily grew to being an internationally recognized medical institution with outstanding expertise and facilities from the time it was established in 1903.

Following the success and growth of St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City since its establishment in the area in 1961, a second St. Luke’s facility was finally opened.  In 2010, the institution launched one of the most modern hospitals in the country —St. Luke’s Medical Center in Global City, Taguig. With the  architectural design of a hotel, the hospital includes a 14-storey Nursing Tower with a capacity of 600 beds, a helipad, 11-storey Medical Arts Building, hotel rooms for patients’ relatives or companions, and a grand main lobby unparalleled by any other hospital at that time. In 2012, it landed on’s list of the “25 World’s Most Beautiful Hospitals” where it was ranked 11th out of the 25 most beautiful hospitals worldwide.

It is arguably one of the best-equipped hospitals in the country with technology and medical expertise that can only be found in other world-class healthcare facilities such as the third generation da Vinci Si Robotic Surgical System,  Linear Accelerator, PET/CT Scan, 256-slice CT Scan, and a 3.0 Tesla MRI. It also houses the first hospital-based IVF facility known as CARMI (Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Infertility) and a water birthing suite.

Two years after its inauguration, St. Luke’s-Global City received its first Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation, a prestige bequeathed only to hospitals that comply with excellent management and international patient safety standards. It is also accredited by a Germany-based accrediting organization Temos (Trust, Effective Medicine,
Optimized Services.) for its merit in quality medical services for the international society
including medical travelers and expats. Along with the Quezon City facility, it was named among the 20 Best Hospitals Worldwide in 2014 by the Diplomatic Council of Europe, a Global Think Tank and Business Network that adheres to the charter of the United Nations.

With a number of accolades from prominent international organizations, St. Luke’s-Global City maintains its reputation as a world-renowned healthcare institution with superiority and excellence in all its functions in technology, medical expertise and patient experience. This only fuels the hospital’s persistence in being at par with the best medical
