The new P1.2 billion state-of-the-art PSG Station Hospital built by Melco Resorts (Philippines) Foundation Corporation (MRP Foundation), to be used by the Presidential Security Group (PSG) and their families, was formally inaugurated by President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday.

MRP Foundation, the charitable arm of the luxury integrated resort City of Dreams Manila, conceptualized and fully funded the construction of the two-story 51-bed hospital, and the procurement of the most advanced medical equipment. A project of the Department of National Defense and PSG, it was undertaken with the support of gaming regulator Philippine Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), under which City of Dreams Manila is a casino licensee.

“The PSG Station Hospital is an affirmation of our commitment towards nation-building by supporting PAGCOR’s various undertakings towards preserving the environment, education, culture, and advancing healthcare programs. We are thankful for the opportunity to contribute in particular to the national government’s efforts in securing a resilient health system,” Clarence Chung, Chairman and President of MRP Foundation said, by way of providing the optimum health care for the men and women of  the government protection agency tasked to protect the President, Vice President, their immediate families and former Presidents and Vice Presidents of the Philippines.

This will greatly benefit PSG personnel, their dependents and other primary stakeholders.”
