The Teddy Rey Healing Place, a four-story facility for the Department of Pediatrics, UPCM-PGHwas inaugurated last February 13, 2013. Leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony was Chancellor Manuel B. Agulto together with Mr. Rick Rey, an alumnus of UP Manila and the main benefactor of this new facility. Initially intended to be a small healing room, it became a four-story multi-purpose building because of the tireless efforts of Rick through the Mely & Rick Rey Foundation. Dedicated in memory of Teddy C. Rey (TCR), brother of Rick and also a UP Manila alumnus, the new building, located adjacent to the Main Entrance of the PGH lobby and just at the back of Bantay-Antayan was built to serve as refuge dedicated to Total Person Care, for sick children and their families to have an appropriate place for counseling, for hospitalized children to continue to be nurtured through education at the Silahis ng Kalusugan, and for pediatric specialists to have a facility that promotes continual discovery of new knowledge and training in their fields of expertise that will redound to better patient care. The project was made possible through the generous donations of the following: Mely & Rick Rey Foundation, Chin Teh Chang, PhD, Farm Systems Development Corporation, UP College of Medicine Class of 1978, Manuel and May Gaspay/UP Beta Sigma Fraternity ‘68B, Tito and Viching De Santos, UPMASA Upstate New York New England chapter, Francisca Ulanday Singh/Johnny Singh, Eriberto and Socorro Caranto Memorial Group, Caleb Ang/Domingo Ang Beng Tam, Dr. Luz M Sison-Fonacier (UPCM ’78), and Dr. Jose Rizal Beltran Fonacier (UPCM ’76), and the Fil-Am Community of Northern Indiana.
