Town mayor thanks Sen. Go for super health center

ROXAS CITY, Capiz (PIA) — Maayon town mayor Raymond Malapajo conveyed his gratitude to Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go for the ongoing construction of a super health center (SHC) in Brgy. Tuburan in the municipality which is expected to be operational later this year.
“All the services at the health facility will be free as we expect most of the patients that will be catered to it are indigents,” he noted, adding that Tuburan and nearby upland areas will be the main service area of the center.
Maayon as well as Dumalag and Tapaz towns are the initial recipients of the Senator’s grassroots public health project in the province.
“Eight more super health centers will be established in Capiz for 2023,” said Sen. Go, who also chairs the Senate Committee on Health.
The Senator personally inspected, March 12, the construction of the super health center in barangay Tuburan before the distribution of the national government’s P3,000.00 financial assistance he facilitated for the 1,000 identified indigent town residents in the municipal civic center.
The municipal government has already an ambulance unit and will deploy a midwife on a 24-hour daily basis at the SHC which can accommodate four simultaneous deliveries when it officially opens health services delivery.
Malapajo disclosed that he also requested from the senator the X-Ray and Ultrasound machines for the SHC that is already half-way completed since it broke ground last year.
The SHC is a medium version of a polyclinic yet an improved version of the rural health unit as a strategy to enhance the quality of the country’s health care system for the poor Filipinos’ access to their needed medical services.
