6 Ways Medical Depot has become a trusted brand in Phl

The decades long commitment to offer medical and healthcare-related services nationwide has catapulted Medical Depot’s growth from its humble beginnings in Bambang, Sta. Cruz to reaching more Filipinos across the country.



When the pandemic hit the whole nation over two years now, Filipinos continue to have a growing need for a trusted partner that can provide everyday consumers, hospitals, clinics, and private practices with reliable and affordable medical supplies and products. Medical Depot, a long-time medical supplier, has made it a point to rally behind Filipinos to give them access to quality healthcare products and medical supplies at reasonable prices. 

The decades long commitment to offer medical and healthcare-related services nationwide has catapulted Medical Depot’s growth from its humble beginnings in Bambang, Sta. Cruz to reaching more Filipinos across the country. 

Here are six ways Medical Depot has grown to become the trusted choice of consumers and the healthcare industry over the years. 

Legacy and Strong Business Track Record

Established in 1991, Medical Depot has over 30 years of experience in offering world-class durable and sturdy medical equipment and supplies to both its customers and partners. Medical Depot has proven its track record in building a solid business with more than 200 employees since its establishment. 

Medical Depot has also understood and recognized the need of more individuals for reliable medical equipment with the rise of life expectancy and rapid technology advancements. For example, older individuals need additional care and this must be addressed through state-of-the-art medical equipment and machines to help them live comfortably. 

This is one reason why Medical Depot has survived decades of providing quality medical supplies and equipment from local suppliers to global partners by maintaining a solid track record and commitment to helping Filipinos. 

Accessibility as a Priority

Medical Depot has put up many of its physical stores across strategic locations within NCR and nearby provinces such as Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas, all of which are within high-traffic areas and close to hospitals for easier access. The company aims to also open more stores in the provinces of Laguna and as far as Isabela, Cagayan, and Ilocos. 

In 2021, Medical Depot went full-blast into e-commerce to cater to a wider net of consumers who need medical supplies and equipment to be delivered to them conveniently. This allows for better access to quality medical products. 

Affordability at all Costs

The company has always put their customers’ and partners’ need at the forefront of what they do. Over the years, many have perceived Medical Depot as a premium yet surprisingly affordable brand. 

The company is a direct importer in Asia Pacific that gives them the ability to acquire high quality products and build strong business partnerships across the region and the country. When hospitals do business with Medical Depot, they are not only assured of the quality of the medical supplies but also of the value for money they are able to get out of it. 

This is also to ensure that consumers can avail of premium and high-standard products at the most affordable prices. 

Wide Array of Quality Medical Products

It’s one thing to provide a wide selection of medical products but another to provide those of uncompromising quality. With Medical Depot, be assured that medical products and supplies purchased are all at par with global and international standards.

From pharmaceutical products to surgical instruments, laboratory supplies and equipment, hospital machines, medical supplies, tools, and devices, rescue supplies, and COVID-related products, Medical Depot surely has what the Filipino community needs. 

Serving the Filipino Community

Medical Depot prides itself of its unique brand of service where each member has been trained to practice listening intently and thinking before they serve customers and partners. Having served thousands of Filipinos in over 30 years, Medical Depot has truly committed to serving and helping the community with all their medical supplies and needs. 

Medical Depot’s businesss model is unique because on top of providing pharmaceutical and convenience products, they also sell medical supplies and hospital equipment that other big players in the medical industry do not offer. 

One-Stop Medical Shop

Unlike any other, Medical Depot considers itself a one-stop medical shop with more than 15,000 medical products all under one roof. From medical equipment, surgical supplies, among others, Medical Depot surely has what both consumers and clients need. 

“Medical Depot has always been committed to reach more Filipinos and provide them access to high-quality and affordable medical products wherever they are in the country. To date, we are the biggest leading medical retail shop with plans to expand nationwide in 2022. There is a lot to look forward to for Medical Depot and the growth we are projecting in the coming months,” shares Rodolfo Medina JR, Medical Depot Chief Executive Officer.

No appointment needed at Maxicare’s new Primary Care Clinics in VV Soliven and Skyrise Cebu

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics are established to give Maxicare members convenient access to superior healthcare and excellent customer experience.



Maxicare, the largest Health Maintenance Organization in the Philippines, announced that appointments won’t be necessary for its two new Primary Care Clinics (PCCs) in VV Soliven Shopping Complex, EDSA Greenhills, San Juan City; and Skyrise Tower 4B, Guanzon St. Cebu IT Park, Cebu City.

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics are established to give Maxicare members convenient access to superior healthcare and excellent customer experience. Usually, an HMO member needs to book an appointment and present a Letter of Appointment (LOA) to avail themselves of consultations or medical tests in accredited clinics and hospitals.

For the Maxicare members’ convenience, they can skip these steps as PCCs provide a paperless queueing system and an electronic medical recording system. Members can simply walk in and complete their lab tests and doctor consultations within half an hour; with an average waiting time of only six minutes. To make waiting inside PCCs the most relaxing healthcare experience, guests are offered free beverages, wifi access, and charging stations for their devices.

Maxicare President and CEO Sean Argos explained that Filipinos deserve convenient access to quality medical services. The Primary Care Clinics were established with this in mind. “We want to encourage Filipinos to make sure that they are in the best of health. We have learned that Filipinos tend to delay their hospital visits as these take up so much of their time. It is our mission, as a company, that whatever our patients and members need today and, in the future, are served in our Primary Care Clinics. We want this to be their safe space, we want to be here for them during their trying times, and we want to serve them faster so that they can spend time on things that matter most in their life.”

Maxicare PCCs are equipped with diagnostic and laboratory test equipment with consultation rooms for families, ENT room, extraction room for blood tests, vital signs station with BMI machine, radiology station with x-ray machine, and heart station with ECG machine. Patients can also consult with primary care physicians, and specialists in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, OB Gynecology, ENT, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, and Psychiatry.

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics provide over 255 laboratory tests and procedures such as complete blood count, lipid profile (cholesterol tests), fasting blood sugar, and SGPT (liver test). They also have special laboratory tests like CA 125 (cancer antigen test) and ferritin (iron-stores test). The heart station includes ECG, 2D echo, treadmill stress test, and, soon, the Holter and Ambulatory monitoring. Anti-rabies vaccine and COVID-19 RT-PCR tests are also available.

“Maxicare is expanding our Primary Care Clinics to places closer to our members. Later this year, we are targeting to open three more PCCs before 2022 ends, with more to be opened next year,” Argos said. “We will continue finding ways to help our fellow Filipinos live their best lives.”

Take a look at the newly opened Maxicare Primary Care Clinics in VV Soliven and Skyrise Cebu.

Maxicare Prima Gold, Prima Silver, and E-Ready Advance prepaid cardholders have free and unlimited consultations at PCCs. At present, a total of 12 Primary Care Clinics are open nationwide: (Luzon) VV Soliven Greenhills EDSA, Eton Centris Quezon City, Northgate Filivest Alabang, SM City Clark, Ayala North Exchange Makati City, Bridgetowne Quezon City, W City Center BGC, and Double Dragon Meridian Park Pasay City; (Visayas) Skyrise Cebu IT Park, Cebu Business Park, and Megaworld Blvd. Iloilo; (Mindanao) Abreeza Mall Davao City.
