Press Release - Bong Go shows commitment to bringing gov't health services closer to Filipinos during groundbreaking of Super Health Center in Tigbauan, Iloilo

Senator Christopher "Bong" Go, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, has remained steadfast in bringing essential public health services closer to more Filipinos through the establishment of Super Health Centers.

In a video message delivered during the groundbreaking ceremony of a Super Health Center in Tigbauan, Iloilo on Friday, October 20, Go acknowledged the role of the local government led by Mayor Virgilio Teruel, and the Department of Health (DOH) Region 6 led by Director Adriano Suba-an, for the successful groundbreaking of the Super Health Center in Barangay Bayuco in the Municipality of Tigbauan.

Super Health Centers are strategically designed to place emphasis on delivering primary care, offering consultations, and enhancing the early detection of diseases in the grassroots. This aims to bolster the healthcare sector throughout the nation, with a particular emphasis on rural communities.

Go also underscored his dedication to bridging the gap between healthcare and the people, thus alleviating the difficulty of extensive travel to access fundamental health services.

"Ipagpatuloy natin na ilapit ang serbisyong medikal sa ating mga kababayang mahihirap na walang matakbuhan kung hindi ang mga government health facilities. Para sa mga mahihirap nating kababayan, napakaimportante po nito dahil iyan po ang kanilang lalapitan po talaga. The more we should support it, the more na mag-invest po tayo sa ating healthcare system," Go said.

"Ilapit po natin ang serbisyong nararapat para sa kanila. Huwag po natin silang pahirapan. Marami po sa mga kababayan natin sa iba't ibang sulok ng Pilipinas na wala silang sariling health center. Kaya importante na mailapit natin ang serbisyong medikal mula gobyerno sa mga taong nangangailangan nito," he stressed.

Super Health Centers offer basic health services, including database management, out-patient, birthing, isolation, diagnostic (laboratory: x-ray, ultrasound), pharmacy, and ambulatory surgical unit. Other available services in Super Health Centers are eye, ear, nose, and throat (EENT) service; oncology centers; physical therapy and rehabilitation centers; and telemedicine.
