Super Rhu to Rise in Pavia

A Super Health Center will soon rise in Barangay Balabag to hasten and improve the delivery of medical and health services to the Pavianhons. This health facility will be smaller than the hospital and it will offer medical services, such as birthing and other minor cases for outpatients.

According to Mayor Luigi Gorriceta, the establishment of the Super Health Center will further enhance the capacity of the local government, particularly the delivery of basic health services to the people.

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go has proposed the establishment of these super health centers throughout the country as he seeks to further improve the Filipino people’s access to government health services, especially during the pandemic and other similar health crises.

The super health center is a medium version of a polyclinic and an improved version of the rural health unit. It will have a land area of 514.3 square meters as initially planned.

The proposed centers will have the following services: lab facilities, pharmacy, birthing facilities, out-patient department, dental services, comprehensive PhilHealth out-patient department, and other minor services. The senator also suggests that these super health centers be used for satellite vaccination sites for those Filipinos who live far from the urban centers.

The human resource needs of the super health center will be sourced from rural health units.

The construction and equipping of these centers will be under the Department of Health’s Health Facilities Enhancement Program.
