PGMA inaugurates Bohol Medical Care Institute

Tagbilaran City (27 July) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo inaugurated on Wednesday the Bohol Medical Care Institute (BMCI), a facility that will provide cheap socialized medical and diagnostic services to indigent families of this island province.

Immediately upon her arrival at the Barangay Dao District here, the President unveiled the marker of the P20 million BMCI facility located at the right side of the building's main entrance.

On hand to assist the President were Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, Education Secretary Jesli Lapus, Governor Erico Aumentado, Tagbilaran City Mayor Dan Lim, and First Consolidated Bank foundation chairman.

In his brief remarks, Governor Aumentado said the opening of the BMCI and the Sandugo Regional One Town, One Product (OTOP) provincial trade fair reflects the administration's focus on key areas of success in the province especially in health, trade, agriculture, education and livelihood.

He stressed that the formal opening of the BMCI "will address the shortage of appropriate diagnostic facilities in Bohol" and the prohibitive cost of medical care services whenever Boholanos go to the cities of Cebu, Manila, Cagayan de Oro or Davao for diagnosis or treatment.

The BMCI will house diagnostic equipment and specialists clinics designed to provide indigents and middle class patients socialized services.

These include radiology, laboratory/pathology, endoscopy, treatment of eye, ear, nose, throat (EENT) diseases, therapy/pain management, internal medicine, cardiology and ambulatory services.

The BMCI is a joint project of the provincial government, First Consolidated Bank (FCB) Foundation, Bohol Chronicle-DYRD- Inyong Alagad Foundation and the New York-based Home Reach Foundation aimed to provide indigent and middle class families socialized medical/diagnostic services. (PIA) [top]
