The Gullas Medical Center is located at Banilad, Mandaue City. It houses the Vicente Gullas Memorial Hospital, a 100-bed Tertiary Care Hospital accredited by PhilHealth, the Gullas College of Medicine, the UV College of Nursing, the Gullas College of Dentistry, the Tan Kim Ching Cancer Center and the upcoming Cosmetic Surgery Center including other health-related courses.
