“We will be developing the Sariaya Rural Health Unit to become one of the first super health center in the province of Quezon and we will be working with the local government of Sariaya for its development,” former Department of Health (DOH) CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo stated in his message as the guest of honor during the blessing and inauguration of the second floor of the Sariaya Rural Health Unit (RHU) yesterday, July 14, 2021.

“The “super health center” will have its own diagnostic center, out-patient department (OPD) including several medical specialties.”

Janairo also said that the super health center will also have an emergency facility that will provide immediate care and treatment since Sariaya is also one of the most visited tourists destinations due to its pristine beaches, heritage houses and the famous mythical Mount Banahaw which attracts nature-trekkers and hikers.

“We have already established super health centers or polyclinics in the provinces of Cavite, Laguna and Batangas. Meron na rin po tayo sa Ibaan, Batangas at dito sa Quezon ay sisimulan natin dito sa Sariaya.”

“People deserve the right care, right in their own community. At ang mga RHUs natin ay dapat me kakayahang maibigay ang kanilang mga pangangailangang pangkalusugan kabilang na dito ang disease prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, palliative care at health promotion,” Janairo emphasized.

“Strengthening our RHUs is important not only to address individual and family health needs, but also in addressing broader issue of public health and the needs of defined populations,” Janairo emphasized.
