The Department of Family and Community Medicine will be implementing an innovative Family Health Care Program at its Outpatient Clinic. The program is designed to simulate an actual family medicine practice catering to the needs of patients and their families while enhancing the training of PGH residents.  The clinic presently caters to a minimum of 120 patients which are accommodated throughout the day. Based on statistics, their patient census becomes higher on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to accommodate the service follow-up of residents. The department boasts of this family-oriented unique approach to the practice. However, to further upgrade its services and provide quality care to its patients, additional equipment is needed for the facility.

One of PGH Medical Foundation Inc.’s main objectives is to provide medical equipment and supplies for the hospital. Cognizant of the need, the foundation extended its support to Dept. of Family and Community Medicine by purchasing the following equipment and supplies to help support its programs:

A. Wall mounted BP apparatus

B. Digital Thermometer

C. LCD Projector

D. Sound system (Amplifier with Speakers)

E. Microphone

F. Monoblock Chairs

With the donation, PGHMF continues to strive in providing quality service and utmost care to the needy patients of PGH.
