Many did not know that Mindanao Heart Center exists here in Davao. Little publicity was given when the institution started last February 2007. Now, I would like to pay tribute to my second home. Mindanao Heart Center was inaugurated last February 14, 2007. MHC, although a part of the Davao Medical Center, has a separate building. MHC started with quite a few number staff and only the special units functioning, namely the Coronary Care Unit, the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, the Cardiovascular Operating room and Cardiovascular Recovery Room. After sometime, with the growing number of patients, the East Wing ward was opened to accomodate all the cardiac patients. The Mindanao Heart Center provides services such 2 Dimensional Echocardiography, Coronary Angiogram, Angioplasty, Pacemaker Insertion and Cardiac Surgeries such as PDA Ligation/Transection, Heart Valve replacements, Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG), SEptal defects Repair, Aneurysm repair, Excision of Myxomas, etc. At present, MHC is fully functional with the staffs and medical doctors are at your service 24 hours, 7 days a week.
