R1MC adopts on-line registration

THE Region 1 Medical Center (R1MC) announced that it has adopted an on-line registration scheme as part of its strategy to cope with its increasing number of patients from all parts of the region.

Dr. Joseph Roland O. Mejia, the Medical Center chief, said the modernization of R1MC’s facilities and equipment are in line with its strategy to deal with its increasing workload on multiple fronts including disease eradication, health-care and research and staff/employee upgrading program.

The on-line registration desk, it was pointed out, replaces the old registration scheme that came under scrutiny for charging P30 registration fee for in-coming patients.

Mejia clarified that the registration fee being required of patients before receiving medical attention is not applied to indigent patients and clarified that it was initiated during the time of Secretary of Health Ona.

Meanwhile, he said the President Corazon C. Aquino Cancer Center, slated to be formally inaugurated along with the eye center and a diet clinic, are new additions to new kidney center that was opened last year.

And the newly opened drug rehabilitation and training center under the R1MC in Barangay Bonuan Binloc, Dagupan City has registered some 166 drug dependents as of March 16, 2017. It is headed by Dr. Delfin Gubatan. (Leonardo Micua)
