As the CEO of The Medical City Dubai, Dr. Becky spearheaded the launch of the first ever Filipino healthcare corporation in The Middle East. Her list of responsibilities includes positioning The Philippines as a medical tourism destination, and promoting The Medical City as one of Asia’s most trusted names in quality, world-class medical treatments. She says, “I am essentially a health ambassador not just for my organization, but also for my country.”

Through Dr. Becky’s tireless efforts, The Medical City has become a major force in the region’s healthcare industry. She attests: “We participated in several international medical conferences and events, and facilitated agreements with private enterprises, medical insurance firms and health maintenance organizations all over the GCC.” 

Above and beyond her role as a healthcare professional and The Medical City’s primary representation in the Gulf region, Dr. Becky hopes to be recognized as a Missionary Doctor. “Working in such an influential position, I want to use my work as a way of channeling blessings to others.”
