SAN SI­MON - May­oralty can­di­date Ro­drigo “Di­gos” Can­las re­cently dis­closed his goal to put up a mu­nic­i­pal dial­y­sis cen­ter in this town once elected as lo­cal chief ex­ec­u­tive in the com­ing May 2019 polls.

Can­las, who is Kam­bi­lan party’s stan­dard bearer here, said that con­struc­tion of dial­y­sis cen­ter will be among his pri­or­ity projects as he sees the need to pro­vide as­sis­tance to Si­mo­nian pa­tients.

Can­las said that the planned con­struc­tion of the dial­y­sis cen­ter com­plete with mod­ern dial­y­sis ma­chines is aimed at ad­dress­ing kid­ney-re­lated prob­lems hound­ing Si­mo­nian pa­tients and their famil i es.

“We have a num­ber of ka­balens who are di­ag­nosed with kid­ney dis­ease and are re­quired to un­dergo dial­y­sis treat­ment sev­eral times a week and we could only imag­ine how costly it is,” he sai d.

By putting up a dial­y­sis cen­ter, pa­tients di­ag­nosed with re­nal and other kid­ney-re­lated dis­eases, es­pe­cially in­di­gents, can un­dergo dial­y­sis treat­ment for free and re­ceive re­lated ser­vices with min­i­mal fees.

“Our goal is to help in­di­gent Si­mo­ni­ans to fur­ther en­joy their lives by as­sist­ing them in their med­i­cal needs. Through free dial­y­sis treat­ment, they can live longer and en­joy life with their fam­ily and friends,” he said.
