Palawan Capitol holds free surgical mission at Southern Palawan Provincial Hospital
The Palawan Capitol has successfully held a free surgical mission at the Southern Palawan Provincial Hospital located in Brooke’s Point town last Feb 21 to 25.
The said free surgical mission was part of the thrust of the provincial government to help those who are in need of medical attendance.
Dra. Amabel Labor, Chief of Hospital at Provincial Health Officer 1 of the Capitol, said that Governor Jose Ch. Alvarez wants to prioritize the health programs for Palaweños.
“Nakakatuwa kahit paano itong monthly surgical mission na pinapayagan ni gov i-sponsor interms of gamit sa ospital at gamot kasi practical na natutugunan yung mga health needs ng mga tao na ilang taon din na pinagdudusahan ng mga pasyente,” Labor said.
Last week’s activity was the second surgical mission held in the same hospital. The first one was last year during its opening.
Among the major and minor surgeries held were Goiter, Hernia, Myoma, Gall Bladder Stones, Cysts, among others.
“Sa kabuuan, umabot sa walong pasyente (8) ang sumailalim sa major surgeries, dalawa (2) ang sumailalim sa medium surgeries at anim (6) ang sumailalim sa minor surgeries,” the province said.
To become a beneficiary under the program, the patient needs to present the following documents:
