Angeles’ health office bags 3 awards from DOH
The local government of Angeles received recognition from the Department of Health (DOH) during the 6th Central Luzon Excellence Awards for Health (CLExAH) 2017.
The ceremony, held at the Royce Hotel, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga province on Feb. 13, aims to recognize the efforts of all the doctors and nurses in different regions in Central Luzon who have been continuously delivering quality medical services to the people.
The city received three awards, namely: the Animal Bite Treatment Center (ABTC) Quality Service Award, Consistency in Field Health Services Information System (FHSIS) Reports Submission for the year 2017, and Pulang Laso Excellence Award.
“We promise to continue the programs that our department created for the different medical needs of our people. This recognition is a manifestation of our hardwork and dedication in delivering the best public health service to the Angeleños,” city health officer Dr. Lenario Santos said.
ABTC Head Dr. Hernand Tulud said the city’s zero-rabies-related deaths from 2012 to 2016 and the complete medications provided for the animal bite victims is instrumental to obtaining the ABTC quality service award.
“We are very thankful to the local government under the leadership of Mayor Pamintuan. We are proud to say that the ABTC in Angeles City is the only center which provides the full course of medication to the patients and it is free of charge,” Tulud said.
