SEN. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go pledged to continue working to provide better access to quality health care services and building more public health facilities across the country when he attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Super Health Center in Rizal, Nueva Ecija on Monday.
In a video message, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography expressed his confidence that the government will help more poor and indigent patients, particularly those in the rural areas. One way to do this is through more Super Health Centers nationwide.
“The goal of these centers is make the medical service of the government accessible to our countrymen, especially those in the rural areas who are the most in need of the service,” Go said.
Services offered in Super Health Centers include database management, out-patient, birthing, isolation, diagnostic (laboratory: X-ray and ultrasound), pharmacy, and ambulatory surgical unit. Other available services are eye, ear, nose and throat (EENT) service; oncology centers; physical therapy and rehabilitation center; and telemedicine, where remote diagnosis and treatment of patients will be done.
Go, who was instrumental in securing funding for the construction of Super Health Centers, said that the government intends to build additional Super Health Centers this year. More than 300 were funded in 2022.
The senator also supported the construction of other Super Health Centers in the province, including in Cabanatuan City, and in the towns of San Leonardo and Sto. Domingo.
