Lung Center of the Philippines thanks PLDT Enterprise for the deployment of the health center’s emergency hotline that will be used by its Out Patient Department in handling COVID-19 concerns and cases.
Manila, Philippines [7 May 2020] — The Lung Center of the Philippines (LCP) today launched its emergency OPD consultation number 155225 dedicated for COVID-19-related concerns and cases. Through PLDT Enterprise, the Lung Center of the Philippines deployed the said emergency hotline to provide health assistance and consultations to Filipinos experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, Asthma, COPD, Bronchiectasis, and Tuberculosis without them needing to personally visit the hospital.
"With this partnership, we aim to support the initiatives of the Lung Center of the Philippines in battling the COVID-19 pandemic so they can efficiently provide timely medical assistance to our fellow countrymen," said Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups. The hotline was established in line with the designated COVID-19 referral center’s response initiatives against COVID-19. Recently, the Lung Center of the Philippines launched its own “COVID AskForce” which is its online portal for all inquiries regarding the novel coronavirus with over 600 volunteer doctors.

“By having an emergency hotline, we can quickly give out necessary health information to Filipinos needing medical attention if they suspect of having COVID-19 or know someone experiencing possible symptoms,” said Dr. Jessica Catalan-Legarda, Supervising Head of LCP OPD Hotline of the Lung Center of the Philippines. “This also helps us manage our frontlines in extending immediate health assistance and care to those who need it the most.”
The 155225 LCP-OPD hotline, which will operate from 8am to 5pm, is also a channel through which the Lung Center of the Philippines can accept donations such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies.
