Free dialysis center opens in Dinalupihan; another to launch in Mariveles
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia has announced that another dialysis center offering free services to indigent patients will rise in the province after the opening of the 1Bataan Malasakit Dialysis Center in Dinalupihan town.
Mariveles is being eyed as the next site of the dialysis center, the governor said.
“Ang purpose nito ay ilapit ang serbisyo ng dialysis at medical assistance para sa mga kababayan dahil ang journey nila ay hindi madali,” Garcia was quoted as saying in a Punto newspaper report.
“Ang pagkuha ng medical assistance ay sinubukan nang padaliin sa kapitolyo pero kung malayong lugar ay pupunta pa doon kaya pinaayos na ang sistema para hindi na sila mahirapan,” he added.
“Pinagsama na ang PSWD at sina Howell Icban na nagbibigay ng assistance kapag may sakit sa national private o national government hospitals sa iisang bubong na lang at naglagay ng call center para sa feedback upang makatulong sa pag-improve ng serbisyo,” the governor said
Chalor Howell Icban, provincial medical assistance chief, said the newly-opened Dinalupihan center was able to serve 89 to 96 patients a day.
If there are more patients, it can undertake overtime services.
“Ngayon na may dialysis center na sa Dinalupihan ay matutulungan na namin ng husto ang mga taga-Bataan, maiiwas tuloy sa threat ng coronavirus disease at sa malaking gastos at pagod,” Icban was quoted as saying.
