“I would like to congratulate the President and CEO of TMC Enterprise Dr. Eugene Ramos and Chairman of the Board Xavier Gonzales, the whole TMC Clark team, especially the diligent frontliners that provide an abundance of care and support to the patients,” he added.
Besides Gaerlan, messages of support were also conveyed by Tarlac Gov. Susan Yap, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Atty. Wilma Eisma, and President Carlos da Silva of Association of Health Maintenance Organization of the Philippines.
