City Hall employees in Angeles undergo annual health check
To ensure their health and wellness, a total of 4,330 City Hall employees in Angeles City are set to undergo an annual physical examination this November.
The Annual Physical Examination (APE) will also include checking of each employee’s medical history including blood pressure check-ups, chest X-rays, urinalysis, electrocardiogram tests, and blood tests, officials said.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. said it was a proactive approach to ensure early detection and adequate treatment of any illnesses that City Hall employees may have.
“We need to put a priority on the health of our employees dahil mas makakapagserbisyo sila ng maayos kung maayos ang kanilang mga kalagayan at kalusugan,” Lazatin said.
Among the local government employees who will undergo the annual physical examination are the 13 elected officials in the city; 1,217 permanent, casual, and contractual personnel; and 3,100 COS employees.
According to Lazatin’s Chief Adviser and Tactician IC Calaguas, the annual physical examination is an opportunity to check on the employee’s overall health status and further examine ongoing pain, symptoms, and other health concerns.
The mayor earlier instructed Calaguas, together with Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, to coordinate with Human Resources and Management Officer Rowena Yambao and City Health Officer Dr. Verona Guevarra in scheduling the annual physical examination.
