ZAMBOANGA CRISIS 2013:
DEFENSE OFFICIALS IN CMZ
Filipinas R. Rojo, MD, MHA

DILG Sec. Mar Roxas, Defense Secretary Voltaire
Gazmin and AFP Chief of Staff Emmanuel
Bautista visit CIUDAD MEDICAL ZAMBOANGA
1
Day 16. September 24, 2013.
After the roller coaster of
emotions in Zamboanga City,
ranging from panic to
depression to compassion,
everyone in Ciudad Medical
Zamboanga had a heyday this
Day 16 for some unusual
reason!
The main reason why three of
the highest officials in the
Philippines (in relation to
2
Defense), DILG Sec. Mar
Roxas, Defense Secretary
Voltaire Gazmin and Armed
Forces of the Philippines Chief
of Staff Emmanuel Bautista's
presence in CMZ was to visit
and give support to the injured
soldiers admitted in here.
After their rounds, the CMZ
Execom led by President Dr.
Joven Monsanto and CEO Atty.
Jhihann Natividad together
with CMZ Vice-President
3
Pedro To had a short informal
meeting with them and their
party on where the DILG and
AFP can also be of help to
CMZ, and where CMZ
requested continued security.
CMZ also expressed our great
appreciation for our soldiers
and we shared that among the
injured soldiers we have
talked to, we see a pattern of
optimism, courage and high
morale.

As soon as the meeting was
done, we, of course, took the
chance for photographs.
What was interesting was that
right after the first shot, Sec.
Roxas requested the people
seated to now give chance to
the photographers!
Since the meeting was done at
the CT/MRI section, the
Radiology staff (who were the
photographers) were the first
to have their light moment.
But what was more fun was
outside of this room, where
everyone (okay, mostly girls!)
had their picture taken with Lt.
Col. Ramon Zagala, AFP public
affairs chief!!!... and also with
ABS CBN's George Cario and
GMA 7's Ian Cruz.
Staff and patients/relatives
joined in with the photo-op of
which they were also so willing
2
to oblige. The staff considered
this as the first "Stress
Debriefing" session. I am
thinking, even Lt. Col. Zagala is
showing such a sincere smile
since this may also be his first
light moment during this
Crisis!
The Defense Party proceeded to
the official Press Conference
within CMZ with national
television groups: ABS-CBN,
GMA 7 and TV 5.
On the way out, Sec. Mar Roxas
passed by the Emergency Room
and thanked the ER Doctors and
staff. Of course, not to be missed
are the photo opportunities
(again!).
CMZ, then, took the time to also
thank the Military Medical and
Nurse Corps for our partnership
and for the courage of our
soldiers.

To our soldiers...in the so
many days, we have also
felt so depressed on your
plight, we are happy now,
that today, we are able to
share with your most Senior
Leaders, our utmost
gratitude to you and our
salute to you, that against all
odds, you have maintained
courage, optimism and
heroism throughout the
Zamboanga Crisis!
Also with this day's events,
somehow, in our own little
way, Ciudad Medical
Zamboanga has achieved
its Vision of being a
hospital with performance
excellence that is
nationally recognized... by
sharing our humble service
to our country's heroes!

CMZ SCENES ON DAY 1 OF THE
ZAMBOANGA CITY CRISIS
September 9, 2013
Filipinas R. Rojo, MD, MHA
I wrote this down because I strongly felt
how my family and friends worried about us
with all the news about the Zamboanga
Crisis this September 9, 10 and still ongoing!!
(
The stream of photos and collages still show
the Ciudad Medical Zamboanga family with
beaming faces... apprehensive... but ever
willing to serve... with preparations now ready
to be put in action.!
!
Our only limitation is that the hospital census is
already full in the first place! We can
accommodate treatment for those who need
immediate care, but we have a limitation to the
possibility of admissions.!
!
There are no gruesome pictures in this set. We
are "far", but since Zamboanga City is small,
far is just about a kilometer away! We are
fortunate not to be in the center of things, but
we worry for our staff who live in the areas
concerned.
!
Senior Leaders (with President Dr. Joven
Monsanto and CEO, Atty. Jhihann Hairun-
Natividad at the helm) immediately assessed
the present situation, updates and activation of
the disaster plan.
Because we have been preparing for so long,
we can afford to smile at the height of the
crisis because we are ready!!!
At the Emergency Room, there were six
injured in the early morning of the
Zamboanga Crisis and the patients not
related to the disaster still continue to come.
Our first admission (after the six injured) was
a pregnant patient because she could not be
accommodated at the government hospital
which is located in the affected area!
Security measures were immediately
heightened with coordination with the
government and with the Armed Forces of
the Philippines and the Police Force.
Food was available to all workforce,
including the support staff and security forces
considering the security issues if staff go out
and unavailability of resources in general.
Other needs were also addressed,
especially, staffing and supplies.

UNSUNG HEROES IN THE
ZAMBOANGA CRISIS 2013
Healthcare professionals (from
nursing and ancillary services) are
in a very noble field, however,
there are times they are taken for
granted and under appreciated by
the people they serve. They are the
unsung heroes who share their
expertise and care whenever and
wherever they are needed.
Many may not even know that they
are willing to extend their duty to 16
hours to 24 hours, if the need arises
when there is a temporary lack of
staff (at certain times) during the
Zamboanga City Crisis 2013.
The temporary lack of staff is not
because they are afraid to come but
because they come from the
affected areas! Service and Care
are already embedded in their
hearts...
But, most of all, we greatly thank
our hospital support group,
because maintenance, security,
supplies, food, janitorial services
are all readily available to augment
the medical, nursing and ancillary
services and they, themselves, are
also unsung heroes!
And, especially, to the Finance
group who really exerted great
effort to coordinate with the banks
for the payroll to be completed on
time. You know you are highly
appreciated by your colleagues!

September 11 to 14, 2013. DAY 3 TO 6 OF THE ZC CRISIS
I am proud of the Ciudad
Medical Zamboanga
family. We are ongoing
with our efforts for the
PQA and this, I believe is
one of the reasons for the
streamlined processes
as part of the
preparation. We hope
we can further develop
these and more so,
sustain these for
PERFORMANCE EXCEL-
LENCE! - FRR
Most interesting are the smiles
after every episode of anxiety
and fear... or after a surge of
bloody and toxic patients.
The end of the Zamboanga
Crisis is still obscure, but with
the partnership of the Public
and Private Sector in times of
dire need, there is great hope
for the Zamboanga City

I listened to Dr. Nimfa
Torrizo, the very
new Regional Director of
the Department of Health -
Center of Health
Development Region IX at
Dateline Teleradyo GBPI
TV-11 on her updates of
the Health Sector during
the Zamboanga City
Crisis.
RD N. Torrizo shared
with the community on
what the DOH is doing
for the Zamboanga
Crisis 2013 and here is
how Ciudad Medical
Zamboanga is helping:
1) Zamboanga City
Medical Center (now
turned into the military
operations center) , thus,
moved to the WMSU
gym where treatment for
patients is ongoing;
Dr. George Rojo, head of
the CMZ Safety Promotion
and Disaster Prepared-
ness Committee is also
part of the Planning Group
for the ZCMC and works
hand in hand with the
Health Emergency
Medical Service of the
ZCMC.
2) the Mindanao Central
Sanitarium under Dr.
Alfonso Montuno is also
preparing the hospital,
especially for surgical
cases and is coordinating
with CMZ for some
resources which may be
needed like sterilization of
instruments.
3) that the Private
Hospitals will now be
tapped for patients
supposed to be for
admission to the
Zamboanga City Medical
Center
4) Accepting patients
from other hospitals for
special diagnostic tests
(CT Scan and MRI).
