PIA Press Release

Mobile clinic to serve Oro upland barangays

Cagayan de Oro City (8 June) -- A mobile clinic equipped with medical personnel and modern health facilities will operate within this week serving the underserved residents in the hinterland barangays of Cagayan de Oro City.

The deployment of the mobile clinic was disclosed by City Mayor Constantino "Tinnex" G. Jaraula during this morning's flag raising ceremony at City Hall after the recent arrival of one of two units of mobile clinic.

The acquisition of the two mobile clinics is part of Mayor Jaraula's thrust to sustain the city government's efforts in addressing the health needs of the'poorest of the poor' residents in the hinterland barangays under the so-called "Forward Delivery of Basic Health Services Program".

According to Mayor Jaraula, a three-man team composed of a doctor, a dentist and a nurse will be assigned to each mobile clinic while extending medical and dental services to the residents in upland barangays.

With barangay Lumbia serving as its base point, the first unit will serve barangays Bayanga, Mambuaya, Dansolihon, Tignapoloan and Besigan while the other mobile clinic will cover barangays Pagalungan, Tagpangi, Taglimao, Tuburan, Pigsag-an and Tumpagon.

Mayor Jaraula hopes that the deployment of the two units of mobile clinic will help reduce the patient population at the overcrowded city-run J.R. Borja Memorial City Hospital, especially those coming from far-flung barangays.

With the mobile clinic doing regular stopover at every covered barangay, poor patients will no longer have to travel to the City Hospital to avail of medical check-up and other health services, the Mayor said.

The mobile clinic could also serve as an emergency ambulance if a patient needs an immediate transport to a nearest hospital during emergency cases, he added. (City Information Office) [top]
