Caloocan City Mayor Enrico “Recom” Echiverri said the local government will continue to offer free medical services for the purpose of improving residents’ state of health.
According to Echiverri, the free medical services can be availed by his constituents at the President Diosdado Macapagal Memorial Medical Center (PDMMMC).
He said that they began offering the free medical services last February 15 through the PDMMMC’s Free Clinic, which has so far serviced 415 local residents on various matters such as breast and prostate screening, pap smear, bone screening, x-ray, ECG and cholesterol test, as well as tooth extraction.
On top of these services, the local government also launched last March 28 its “Operation Bukol” project which dealt with patients with minor cysts. Some 15 residents with minor cysts availed of the service.
Meanwhile, today (April 13) would mark the launch of “Libreng Tuli (Free Circumcision)”, which will be carried out every Friday at PDMMMC. Screenings will be done every Thursday.
Echiverri said at least 100 young boys aged 10 years and above are expected to benefit from the project, which will offer free circumcision for four successive weeks.
“Operation Restore Hope”, on the other hand, will last between April 16 and 20 wherein residents with harelip will be operated upon, for free, by no less than foreign medical experts invited over by the city government.
The local government, through the continuous support of Echiverri, believes that the number of beneficiaries from these medical programs would only continue to grow beyond the 415 mark.
