CHCC to send CORE group, mobile clinic to Rota today


The Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. would be deploying an outreach clinic to Rota today.

CHCC chief executive officer Esther Muna said yesterday that they would also be sending a group of volunteers to assist Rota residents after Typhoon Mangkhut hit the island two weeks ago.

CHCC would be setting up a mobile clinic by the Sinapalo Youth Center from 9:30am to 5pm today.

“We want to be able to reach out to individuals who are delaying their care to come and access these medical services,” Muña said, adding that one thing she observed from 2015’s Typhoon Soudelor was that residents put off seeking medical assistance to prioritize other things such as debris collection.

According to Muña, members of the Community Outreach Recovery Efforts would accompany the CHCC mobile clinic on Rota.

The one-day clinic, along with the members of the CORE, would go out to homes and urge Rota residents to see their healthcare provider.

Muña said the decision to send the mobile clinic to Rota was made after the result of a Centers for Disease Control survey.
