ILIGAN CITY (PIA)–The Iligan Polymedic inaugurated its state-of-the-art primary care facility, equipped with an impressive roster of physicians, ready to serve the communities in the city and nearby municipalities located in Barangay Tibanga, here.

The Iligan Polymedic is a two-story primary care facility covering 400 square meters of floor area. It offers a wide range of services, including a pharmacy, laboratory facilities, a birthing home, minor operation services, and a multi-specialty clinic.

The facility boasts an extensive team of dedicated physicians, including an anesthesiologist, general surgeon, obstetrician-gynecologist, pediatrician, internal medicine specialist, occupational doctor, family doctor, ophthalmologist, optometrist, aesthetic surgeon, dermatologist, and pathologist.

Iligan Polymedic, which has received accreditation from the Department of Health, aspires to comply with the Universal Health Care Law’s principles while offering equal access to high-quality healthcare and medical technology.

According to Ryan Ong, the Vice President of Iligan Polymedic, their goal is to alleviate congestion at the city hospital and provide services comparable to a private facility to the less fortunate constituents.

“We want to decongest the city hospital and muhatag ta sa atoang mga constituents nga mga kabus nga makabati pud sila ug service like a private facility (We want to decongest the city hospital and provide our less fortunate constituents with services comparable to those of a private facility),” Ong said.

Furthermore, at their birthing center, patients can benefit from zero-balance billing as long as they have PhilHealth coverage or are beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) program.

Meanwhile, Hilarion Grospe, the administrator of Iligan Polymedic, invites the public to patronize and avail themselves of their free services.

“We have a multi-specialty clinic, and then we already have a birthing home. So pwede namo manganak dire ang kadtong mga buntis. Wala tay bayad dinhi as long as active atong PhilHealth ug atong 4Ps. Naa pud free prenatal to be conducted by our midwife sa facility,” said Grospe.
