Taguig City Hospital gets new CT Scan


CT Scan and TB Clinic @ TPDH (3)The city government of Taguig is investing on additional well-established diagnostic tools and facilities to its primary medical facility, the Taguig-Pateros District Hospital (TPDH), to give the latter’s patients better access to quality health care services.

Last May 29, TPDH inaugurated its new Computed Tomography (CT) scan, as well as its newly renovated Tuberculosis Directly-Observed Treatment Shortcourse (TB-DOTS) clinic.

According to Mayor Lani Cayetano, the first 20 patients needing a thorough examination would be able to use the CT scan for free, while the succeeding patients will be given a 40% discount. This, she added, will ensure convenience to patients and physicians.

“Before our procurement of the CT scan, patients had to go to other hospitals for their scans. With this new facility available 24/7 there will be no unnecessary delays in diagnosis and treatment,” the local chief executive said.

A CT Scan is an x-ray procedure performed to analyze internal structures of the body using computer-generated cross-sectional views/pictures that will assist doctors to accurately guide the placement of instruments or treatments during operations.

Earlier, the city launched a pioneering project called Doctor On Call (DOC), which provides round-the-clock immediate medical assistance.

Residents in need of it may simply call telephone numbers 225-1833 and 0917-821-0896, and a doctor will see them in their homes. ###

Taguig Pateros District Hospital, may bagong CT Scan

Binigyan ng Taguig City government ng karagdagang kagamitan at pasilidad ang Taguig-Pateros District Hospital (TPDH), upang mabigyan ang mga pasyente nito ng mas dekalidad na serbisyong medikal.

Noong ika-29 ng Mayo, pinasinayaan sa TPDH ang bagong Computed Tomography (CT) Scan, gayundin ang inayos na Tuberculosis Directly-Observed Treatment Shortcourse (TB-DOTS) clinic.

Ayon kay Mayor Lani Cayetano, ang unang 20 na  pasyente na mangangailangan ng CT scan ay magagamit ito nang libre, habang ang mga susunod naman ay magkakaroon ng 40% na diskuwento. Tiniyak din ng punong lungsod na ito ay lubos na makatutulong sa mga pasyente gayundin sa mga duktor.

“Bago  binili  ang CT scan, ang mga pasyente ay kailangan pang pumunta sa ibang pagamutan para magawa ang pag scan. Sa tulong ng bagong pasilidad na ito na magagamit 24/7, hindi na maaantala ang pagbibigay ng karampatang lunas sa ating mga pasyente,” ani Mayor Lani.

Ang CT Scan ay isang x-ray procedure na isinasagawa upang suriin ang loob ng katawan sa pamamagitan ng computer generated cross-sectional views/pictures na gagabay sa mga duktor sa  gagawing gamutan o operasyon.

Kamakailan, inilunsad ng lokal na pamahalaan ang Doctor On Call (DOC), isang proyektong pinangunahan ng Taguig, na nagbibigay ng agarang tulong medikal.

Ang mga residente na nangangailan ng tulong ay maaring tumawag sa mga numerong 225-1833 o 0917-821-0896 upang agad na mapuntahan ng duktor sa kanilang tahanan. ####
