PROJECT WATCH: The NMMC Indicative Master Plan

We just posted a while ago about the ongoing construction of Northern Mindanao Medical Center’s 6-storey Oncology Center (LINK). Said project is just the latest of the multi-billion masterplanned development of the medical c0mplex in Cagayan de Oro City.

Shown below is the PROPOSED INDICATIVE MASTER PLAN for NMMC. This is posted at the hospital’s bulletin board which can be viewed by the general public. You can see the different buildings with distinct colors and letter markings.


Here’s a closer look which shows Building C (6-storey Heart-Lung-Kidney Center)-under construction, Building B (3-storey Maintenance/Motorpool)-existing, Building A (4-storey OPD)-existing and Building E (6-storey Cancer Center)-under construction. Building G is the main hospital building which will become an 8-storey structure soon as proposed.


On the other side are Building D (6-storey New Ward Bldg)-under construction, and Building F (6-storey O.R. Complex)-proposed.


On the right side of the plan are the brief details of the development.


Here’s a closer look.



As indicated, all buildings will connected via bridges.


There’s another layout showing the existing NMMC as compared to the master plan.



Some existing buildings are labeled temporary and will be demolished to give way to the proposal. Among them are H (4-storey Main Hospital Building), I (2-storey OB-ER & Ward), J (2-storey ER & Ward), K (1-storey Transient Ward), and L (1-storey ER Pending Cases).



When completed, patients seeking medical help for various health reasons may need not go to Manila or Cebu.

    Nice development….mas ok unta to kung magrelocate sila in a bigger space…accessible to patien is advantage…but the traffic jam and crowded area is the main problem there…

    All master plan looks good on paper. should also post when this project, or to any projects posted on your website,will be realized. Since this project started I could barely see progress on any proposed building in this master plan. I hope before DU30 ends his term, matapos na eto.
    I agree with Mr. Maldives, this NMMC project should have been relocated to a better place. DOH shouldn’t have approved this and should have realized that the best place for the DOH flagship hospital and referral center for the whole Northern Mindanao is outside this present commercial area. There are much better place for a project of this magnitude.
    Could the color of money be the….. Your guess is as good as mine.

    I hope the incumbent DOH secretary gets to review this project soon and recommend a relocation to a much better place outside CdO. Present structure will be retained and will be turn into a specialty center, like a Kidney and Transplant Center, Cancer Center & a Heart Center of Northern Mindanao

    what about the parking lot? what do they expect? people without vehicles? or their patients are all going there by foot? the provision for parking is not even enough for hospital personnel.
