To bring public health services closer to communities, especially those in remote areas, Go, as chair of the Senate Committee on Health, earlier advocated for the establishment of more Super Health Centers nationwide. The Department of Health, as the lead implementing agency, identifies the strategic areas where these SHCs will be established.
Super Health Centers offer health services including database management, out-patient, birthing, isolation, isolation, diagnostic (laboratory: x-ray, ultrasound), pharmacy and ambulatory surgical unit.
Other available services are eye, ear, nose, and throat service, oncology centers, physical therapy and rehabilitation center and telemedicine, where remote diagnosis and treatment of patients will be done.
Apart from Vintar, Super Health Centers will also be established in the towns of Dingras, Bangui, Marcos, Nueva Era, and Paoay in Ilocos Norte.
To efficiently address the growing need for quality healthcare in the country, Go, together with fellow legislators, supported the funding for the construction of some 307 Super Health Centers across the country in 2022.
