Sen. Bong Go, who heads the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, continues to push for the establishment of more Super Health Centers across the country.

In his video message during the relief activity in Rosario, Cavite on Tuesday, 22 November, Go reaffirmed his efforts to bring the government’s public health services closer to more disadvantaged Filipinos, stressing the importance of further strengthening the country’s healthcare system.

“Ako po bilang Chair ng Committees on Health at Sports, ang aking adbokasiya (ay) health tsaka sports. Gusto kong padamihin ang mga hospital (at) mga Super Health Center dahil hindi natin alam kung ito na ba yung huling pandemya na darating sa buhay natin. Mas mabuting mas handa tayo,” Go stressed.

“Isinulong po natin ang pagpapatayo ng mga Super Health Centers sa buong Pilipinas dahil alam ko po kung gaano ninyo kailangan na mapalapit sa inyo ang serbisyong medikal mula gobyerno,” he underscored.

Citing that there will be 307 Super Health Centers that will be constructed this year and more next year, Go explained that these centers will offer basic health services, such as database management, out-patient, birthing, isolation, diagnostic (laboratory: x-ray, 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.

In Cavite, there will be eight SHCs in 2022 that will be strategically located in the cities of Bacoor, Dasmariñas, General Trias, and Imus as well as in the towns of Carmona, Kawit, Magallanes and Tanza.
