By September 3, 2023People & Events

MORE than 300 residents of Barangay Lokeb Norte and its neighboring barangays flocked to the “Primary Care Medical and Surgical Mission” conducted by the Conrado F. Estrella Regional Trauma and Medical Center (CFERTMC), in Malasiqui, Pangasinan on August 25, 2023.

According to CFERTMC Medical Center Chief Emerson B, Patawaran, the medical mission provided equitable, efficient, and effective health care services in partnership with local government units, non-government agencies, civic groups, religious organizations, and other government agencies.

Among the free health care services provided were circumcision, tooth extraction, X-ray, medical check-up and laboratory services. Medicines were also given during the activity.

Patawaran said that residents needing higher levels of treatment and care will be properly referred to the nearest DOH hospital in the province.

DOH-Regional Director Paula Paz M, Sydiongco lauded CFERTMC’s initiative of extending its health care services in the communities. “Napakalaking tulong ito sa mga residenteng hindi makapunta sa mga hospital dahil sa pangunahing dahilan na walang perang gagastusin sa pagpapagamot.”

She added that most residents in the communities do not get proper care due to socio-economic factors that are beyond their control.

“By educating residents on what resources are available to them and how they can access these we can empower them to take control of their own health.” she said.

The activity was held at the Lokeb Norte Elementary School Gymnasium in coordination with the Lokeb Norte LGU.

CFERTMC is a retained hospital of the Department of Health – Ilocos Region located at the Government Center, Barangay Carmay East, Rosales, Pangasinan. (DOH 1)
