Palawan’s public health laboratory urges residents to avail themselves of their services
The Palawan Capitol’s Environmental Sanitation and Public Health Laboratory (ESPHL) has urged the residents of the province to avail themselves of the quality services they offer.
The ESPHL, which is under the Provincial Health Office, is granted by the Health department with a license as tertiary level clinical laboratory.
It offers diagnostics such as hematology, chemistry, serology, clinical microscopy and microbiology.
It also offers water analysis and drug testing.
Cyrus Cecilio Caabay, medical technologist II and unit head of the ESPHL, said that their office oversees the laboratories of hospitals administered by the provincial government as well as the Rural Health Units (RHU) and other district hospitals.
“Nagbibigay rin sila ng mga pagsasanay at technical assistance sa bawat local health units na saklaw ng kagawaran ng pangkalusugan para magkaroon ng karagdagang kaalaman ang mga medical technologists,” said the provincial government.
Caabay also said that more people have undergone drug testing in 2018 at 3,779 compared to just 2,600 in 2017.
“Hinihikayat ni G. Caabay ang mga kababayang Palaweño na tangkilikin ang iba’t bang serbisyong ipinagkakaloob ng kanilang tanggapan,” said the provincial government.
