THE Department of Health– Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) yesterday opened the first Super Health Center model in the country.

DOH regional director Dr. Eduardo C. Janairo, in coordination with Ibaan local government unit and various stakeholders in health, including private groups and industries, upgraded and converted the Ibaan Rural Health Unit into a polyclinic or a Super Health Center.

The super health center can provide all the basic health needs, including specialized health services at the local level.

“This is the first and only true super health center in the country, with a higher standard of care than a regular rural health center, and can provide essential health services to the people in the community,” Janairo said during yesterday’s blessing and inauguration of the facility located in Bgy. Talaibon, Ibaan, Batangas.

“Sa pamamagitan ng super health center na ito ay maibibigay natin ang pangangailangang pangkalusugan ng ating mga kababayan. At ito ang magiging testamento na sa lokal na level pa lang ay kaya ng ibigay ang mga serbisyong medikal na kailangan ng isang pasyente upang hindi na pumunta pa sa malalaking ospital o sa Maynila para makapagpagamot,” he added.

Janairo said the project is the culmination of a long journey filled with determination, hope and cooperation with the right people and the right partners, with a common goal and aspiration of building and providing better health for our people that is affordable, accessible and available to all people.

The facility offers basic health services, including database management, out-patient (OPD), tb dots, birthing, isolation, isolation, diagnostic (laboratory: x-ray, ultrasound), pharmacy and ambulatory surgical unit.

Other available services are EENT service (for eyes, ears, nose and throat), oncology centers, physical therapy and rehabilitation center and telemedicine, where remote diagnosis and treatment of patients will be done.

Janairo said that other health care services will be provided in partnership with the UP-PGH Department of Surgery and the Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital.
