Century Properties Group Inc. will open its first outpatient medical facility in Makati City at the start of 2015 in line with its thrust of building its commercial leasing portfolio and diversifying its recurring income revenue streams.

Century Properties said it has started turning over the units at the $70-million Centuria Medical Makati in its Century City development after completion.

“We are in the midst of a tremendous growth opportunity for health care and medical tourism. Centuria will address the need for facilities that will take these sunrise industries to the next level in the Philippines,” chairman Jose E.B. Antonio said in a statement.

“This medical facility is also an important component to our strategy of having a complete, integrated community at Century City, where you just don’t have offices, high rise residences and a retail mall but also a modern outpatient healthcare facility,” he added.

Centuria Medical Makati, with 28 storeys, will have close to 700 clinics and office suites, support facilities, 18 commercial spaces for dining, and wellness and pharmacy outlets.
