Mindanao’s heart center

A valentine treat.

The Mindanao Heart Center opens in Davao City this month as government health officials inaugurated its building and initial facilities at the Davao Medical Center today. Up to April, the center will cater only to dignostic services as other facilities will be available later.

They said it will be at par with the Philippine Heart Center in Manila and will be opened to indigent patients. DMC chief Dr. Gerardo Cunanan told a press conference the services, however, will not be free. He said they will pass on expenses to partner organizations that pledged to help patients.

A grant loan from the Dutch government helped the government acquire majority of the facilities in the center. Read full story here.
