Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO — Vice Gov­er­nor Den­nis “Delta” Pineda is eye­ing to put up a provin­cial dial­y­sis cen­ter which would cater the needs of pa­tients un­der­go­ing dial­y­sis treat­ment once elected gov­er­nor in the May 2019 mid-term elect i ons.

The vice-gov­er­nor bared this dur­ing the re­cent assem­bly of 1,500 dial­y­sis and can­cer pa­tients at the Bren Z. Guiao Con­ven­tion Cen­ter here.

The vice-gov­er­nor is eye­ing the cen­ter for more in­ten­si­fied mon­i­tor­ing and con­tin­u­ous med­i­ca­tion of pa­tients.

“This will surely ben­e­fit Ka­pam­pan­gan pa­tients and their fam­i­lies in terms of reg­u­lar check-ups, dial­y­sis and che­mother­apy ses­sions and will be more con­ve­nient in terms of has­sle-free travel time,” he said.

Although this is still a fu­ture plan, the provin­cial govern­ment has been send­ing med­i­cal and fi­nan­cial aid to these pa­tients since 2010.

Pa­tients have been given as­sorted gro­ceries, al­lowances and pro­vided reg­u­lar check-ups at the 11 pub­lic hospi­tals su­per­vised by the Capi­tol, Provin­cial Health Of­fice led by Dr. Mar Jaochico, Provin­cial So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment Of- fice led by Eliz­a­beth Bay­bayan, the Provin­cial Dis­as­ter Risk
