The Iloilo City Government has opened Uswag Dialysis Center in Molo and is targeting to open another one in Brgy. San Isidro, Jaro. These centers will give free services to residents of the metro who are battling both chronic kidney disease and costly clinic or hospital fees.
“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” Mayor Jerry P. Treñas said.
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 a dialysis center.
Target opening is in the 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).
