The Iloilo City Government is targeting to open another dialysis center in Brgy. San Isidro, Jaro that will give free services to residents of the metro who are battling both chronic kidney disease and costly clinic or hospital fees.
Mayor Jerry Treñas together with his trusted personnel who have a part in the projects recently visited the Uswag Dialysis Center for a site inspection. This is to assess the current status of development.
“Padayon ang serbisyo para sa kaayuhan sang mga Ilonggo! Ginpatukod naton ang Dialysis Center sa San Isidro para makahatag libre nga operasyon sa aton mga kasimanwa. We inspected the area to see that we are on track with the developments so we create a level up health service for the Ilonggos,” Treñas said.
“The centerpiece of our administration is public health that is why I made sure the dialysis center project will be realized. This is free dialysis treatment for Ilonggos who need them, and will defray them of at least P4,000 fee per dialysis session,” he added.
The San Isidro dialysis center will have 14 units to cater to more patients. The existing health center at the site has been retrofitted to operate as dialysis center.
Target opening is third quarter of this year, said Treñas.
The city has already inaugurated in December last year the Uswag Iloilo Dialysis Center in East Baluarte, Molo with three units.
Those who can avail of hemodialysis treatment are bonafide residents of Iloilo City, indigents, and active member of Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth).
