Grand Opening of Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic at South Cotabato Provincial Hospital

South Cotabato, Philippines —- The South Cotabato Provincial Hospital proudly announced the launch of its new Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinic. The clinic, operational every Wednesday from 1 pm to 4 pm, aims to provide free nephrology consultations for patients under the expert care of Dr. Danille Emerald Galang, the Head of the Hemodialysis Unit.

“Poor accessibility to specialized kidney care has been a pressing issue in our community. The CKD Clinic represents a crucial step in addressing this gap and providing comprehensive care for individuals battling chronic kidney diseases,” said Supervising Administrative Officer Roditt Delfino.

Patients interested in availing themselves of the clinic’s services are required to register through the e-konsulta system at the outpatient department. Once registered, individuals will receive laboratory requests and be provided with a scheduled time for their consultation with Dr. Galang.

“Our commitment extends beyond consultations; we aim to manage comorbidities, prevent uremic complications, and explore options for Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT),” emphasized Delfino, underscoring the holistic approach of the clinic.

Nephrologist Dr. Danille Emerald Galang assured that the clinic would prioritize early-stage renal patients, ensuring they receive the specialized care they deserve. “Our goal is to intervene at an early stage, offering personalized care plans and preventing the progression of kidney diseases whenever possible,” said Dr. Galang.

The establishment of the Hemodialysis Unit and CKD Clinic is a direct response to the growing number of clients seeking financial assistance for hemodialysis treatment. “The demand for renal care services has surged, and it’s our duty to address this need comprehensively,” noted Dr. Conrado Brana, Chief of Hospitals.

Governor Reynaldo Tamayo, Jr., a driving force behind this initiative, expressed, “Recognizing the urgent need for expanded healthcare services, we have taken a practical step in establishing the CKD Clinic and Hemodialysis Unit. Our community deserves accessible and high-quality healthcare.”

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this valuable resource, seeking timely consultations and treatments for chronic kidney conditions. “The CKD Clinic and Hemodialysis Unit are not just facilities; they are symbols of hope and commitment to the health and well-being of our community,” affirmed Governor Tamayo. The clinic’s doors are open, offering hope and specialized care to those in need.
