Insular Health Care (IHC) Assistant Vice-President and Medical Director Dr. Art C. Libao went to South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat to visit and re-orient existing providers and to accredit new doctors, clinics, and hospitals. The 4-day provincial visit took him to the following providers: Mindanao Medical Center, Socsargen County Hospital, St. Elizabeth Hospital, and Gen San Doctors Hospital all located in Gen. Santos City; Quijano Clinic, Sandig Medical Hospital, and Sultan Kudarat Doctors Hospital in Tacurong; Clinica Luntao in Norala; Landero Hospital and Lariosa Clinic in Surallah; Dr. Luntao Clinic in Sto. Nino; and Dr. Arturo Pingoy Medical Center in Koronadal City.
Dr. Libao’s provincial visits are aimed at increasing IHC’s roster of accredited providers to ensure that its members can have a wider choice of specialists and facilities to service their medical needs. It also serves as a forum to renew and strengthen relationships with coordinators and hospital staff in charge of handling HMO patients.
Next stop for Dr. Libao are the cities of Tacloban and Ormoc in Leyte.
