DOH-CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Regional Director lauded the participants of the province of Rizal for having one of the best hospital health care system in the region during the three-day “Collaborative Planning Workshop on Quality Management for City Health Offices, Rural Health Units and Barangay Health Stations of Rizal Province” held at the Ramada Hotel in Binondo, Manila on October 3-5, 2018
 
“It is very important that health workers in the community will have to complement the level of health care system in the hospitals to reduce the overload of patients. Patients must patronize rural health units because they are the frontline in providing patient care,” he stated.
“It is for this reason that the regional office created the health facility operations and development unit to provide facility, equipment and technical support to rural health units and to ensure their capabilities to provide primary care to their respective areas,” he added.
 
“As health officers, we have always aspired that our rural health units could become diagnostic centers because it has the potential to improve patient care and help limit unnecessary expenses.”
 
As of 2017, there are a total of licensed 26 birthing homes, 17 TB-DOTS Centers, 12 Animal Bite Treatment Centers (ABTC), 1 Maternity Care Package (MCP) provider and 1 clinical laboratory.
 
Janairo emphasized that the regional office has the responsibility and obligation to extend support including human resource in order to ensure that every rural health unit will be functional and properly equipped. “Patients must go to their nearest health unit and not to a distant hospital which can be costly with regards to transportation and other expenses.”
“This is the time to present to us your dreams and aspirations including your plans on how to improve community health care in your area. Let us join hands and together we can provide greater service to our people,” he encouraged.
 
The province of Rizal consists of 13 municipalities namely San Mateo, Cainta, Taytay, Angono, Morong, Binagonan, Rodriguez, Teresa, Tanay, Baras, Cardona, Pililia, Jala-Jala and 1 City, which is Antipolo. The total population is 2,284,046.
