The acronym stands for Manila Central University – Filemon D. Tanchoco Medical Foundation. This is just one of the several buildings within MCU campus used by the hospital (not sure if it has specific name).
How to commute to MCU-FDTMF Hospital?
EDSA is traversed by several jeepneys and buses and they usually have different end points or enter and exit EDSA at different points, so a public utility vehicle (PUV) passing through EDSA is not a guarantee that it will pass by MCU-FDTMF Hospital.
Having said that, if you’re coming from the other segments of EDSA; those in Pasay, Makati, Mandaluyong, and even Quezon City, you can board any of the buses with words “Malanday” or “UE Letre” in their signages. You will see MCU-FDTMF Hospital on your right sometime after passing by Balintawak Market and North Luzon Expressway but before reaching the Andres Bonifacio Monument. Alternatively, you can board MRT Line 3 up to North Avenue station and transfer to these buses at the bus stop besides Trinoma.
Another way is to ride LRT Line 1 up to Monumento Station and then you can walk 350 meters eastward along EDSA towards MCU-FDTMF Hospital. Just be mindful of the places where you can or cannot cross the road. If you are walking on the pedestrian lane of EDSA southbound side, there is a footbridge connecting both sides of EDSA; you will see it first before arriving at MCU-FDTMF Hospital.
If you’re coming from the furthern northen areas of Metro Manila, just proceed with the way you know on how to reach either the Andres Bonifacio Monument or the segment of EDSA within Quezon City. Then, continue by following the directions in the two previous paragraphs.
