Introduction

The CvSU Health service is basically a supportive unit of University. It is in charged with the delivery of the basic health services which are promotive, preventive, and curative and to some extent rehabilitative. Its vital role is towards the achievements of delivering quality, affordable accessible health services with maximum enjoyment of good health to its clientele.

Its services are also extensively utilized by the University for its student practicum, on the job training and in varying degrees for health manpower development and research as well as for rural development program.

 

Rationale:

For the past few years the Health services unit has been extending services to CvSU students, faculty members, and employees. Dependents and immediate family members of the faculty members and staff also avail of the free services of the unit. At present, with more than 7,000 clientele, the Unit can no longer meet their demands hence it is proposed to have a secondary hospital to be duly licensed by the Department of Health and accredited by Phil health. As a secondary hospital it will be capable of handling simple and uncomplicated case as well as major and minor surgical cases which require the attention of specialist Doctors and the use of medical equipments and facilities. Serious cases which require the use of sophisticated equipment are then referred to a tertiary hospital.

Our clientele are with priority but not limited for students, faculty members and staff but also extended to outsiders particularly the GSIS and SSS members under the provision of Phil health as well as the poorest ones.
