It's not a rumor. The Lopezes of ABS-CBN bought into The Medical City (it's an existing tertiary hospital with excellent, up-to-date facilities), and they infused around $3 billion to expand TMC from a 4 storey hospital to a 12-storey one to compete with the existing high-tech hospitals. They then decided to open up a medical school and "donated" the school to Ateneo de Manila. They're already building the hospital, and it plans to start accepting medical school applicants in 2005.
