Published

CITY OF MEYCAUAYAN—Senator Bong Go inaugurates on Friday Bulacan’s 15th Super Health Center (SHC) which is among the more than 700 of the said health facility in the country.

The Meycauayan Super Health Center which is built in Barangay Camalig, near the old city hall intends to serve the residents in the far flung inner villages of the city.

The Department of Health funded the SHC through the national government health care improvement system advocacy and campaign program of improving the health facilities in far-flung areas that was supported and pushed by Go as chair of the senate health committee.

The SHC, Go said offers more medical and health services than a municipal or city health center. However, it could not equate the

facilities and capabilities of a hospital.  

A SHC offers free medical services for out patients including laboratories, birthing and delivery sections, isolation, diagnostic equipment such as laboratory, X-ray, ultrasound, pharmacy and ambulatory surgical unit. It also provides Eye Ear Nose and Throat (EENT) services, oncology, physical therapy and rehabilitation center including telemedicine.

According to Go, dialysis centers will also be put up in the SHC’s.

Mayor Henry Villarica said that while Meycauayan General Hospital is on the offing to benefit the people of Meycauayan, a SHC will fill the vacuum in health and medical needs of the residents together with the existing rural health units and centers in the city. 

Meycauayan SHC is the 7th SHC built in Bulacan under the P11.5 million worth funds by the DOH in 2022 including Guiguinto, Balagtas, Bulakan, City of San Jose del Monte, Pandi and San Miguel. For this year, eight other SHC’s will be constructed in Angat, Baliwag, Marilao, Obando, Paombong, Plaridel, San Ildefonso and San Rafael.

“Here in Bulacan, we have a total of 15 Super Health Centers that will continue to be built this year while in the whole of the country, we have already built more than 700 Super Health Centers. This is in fulfillment of our thrust and advocacy to bring primary quality health care down to the farthest barangays,” Go, chair of the senate health committe said during the distribution of Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) shortly just after the SHC inauguration. 

Go also boasts that there are already 158 Malasakit Centers that were already built in the country and has been benfiting hundreds of Filipinos, three of which were in Bulacan–at the Bulacan Medical Center in City of Malolos, at San Jose del Monte Hospital and at Rogaciano Mercado Memorial Hospital in Sta. Maria town.  

Malasakit Center, an initiative project of Go is a one stop government agency center like the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in a government hospitals that cater to the needed support documents of pattents particulary the indigents.
