Over 100 patients visit Kagman health center since Yutu

THE Kagman Community Health Center has seen over 100 patients since Typhoon Yutu hit the island, KCHC Chief Executive Officer Vince Castro said.

He said a significant number of patients complained of stomach or respiratory problems.

“Since the typhoon, diarrhea, coughing and asthma are the common complaints of the patients,” Castro said, adding that  the center also sees patients who ask for prescription refills.

Though KCHC is running on generator, Castro said it is open from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We have enough medicine and medical supplies.  We don’t anticipate any shortages,” he added.

KCHC recently added Dr. Tiffany Willis, Leticia Reyes and Arley Long to its team of healthcare providers.
