125th Malasakit Center, Launched At Siargao District Hospital

On Saturday, July 3, 2021, the 125th Malasakit Center at Siargao District Hospital in Surigao del Norte was opened to the public under the leadership of Sen. Bong Go. The new name of the hospital, Siargao Island Medical Center, was also launched on the same occasion, which was sponsored by the Senator last year.

In addition, Kuya Bong Go and his office also provided assistance to 115 medical health workers, including rank and file employees, as well as 25 hospital patients.

Apart from making the process of asking for help with their hospitalization easier, our compatriots living on the island will no longer have to spend and leave to get medical assistance from the government.

The Malasakit Center is sure to bring great help and comfort to our compatriots on the beautiful island of Siargao, Surigao del Norte, Philippines!

This is the first ever state of the art and world class healthcare facility in the world famous Island of Siargao.

We have been very proud of Siargao, its tourism prospects and all. But it took President Duterte and Senator Christopher Bong Go to ensure that healthcare of the locals and tourists are taken care of.

Did you know that Siargao is composed of 9 municipalities under the Province of Surigao del Norte? Tapos ngayon lang po magkakaroon ng magandang hospital! 

Thank you, President Duterte and Senator Bong Go! Salamat po!
