DENR Ilocos Sur provides health assistance to employees

VIGAN CITY, July 4 (PIA) -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Ilocos Sur provided free medical check-up to its 72 employees as part of the HR @ UR SERVICE week of the said office in celebration of the Environment Month with the theme "Aksyon Para sa Natatanging Mundo."

The free medical check-up which included Electrocardiography (ECG), Urinalysis, Hemoglobin Test, Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) and Blood Typing was conducted on June 29 at the Ilocos Sur Medical Center in Candon City, Ilocos Sur.

The DENR Ilocos Sur through Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Rosemarie B. Jornacion requested the Office of Deputy Speaker Kristine Singson-Meehan for a collaboration to cater free medical check-ups for the employees.

Jornacion said the activity was conducted because the office believes that their "employees are the best asset" in the delivery of their mandates.

“Without our employees, there would be no DENR Ilocos Sur delivering excellent services to our clientele, thus, their health and wellness should be prioritized,”Jornacion said.

Results of the employees' laboratory procedures were given and interpreted by the young doctors of the Ilocos Sur Medical Center wherein some were advised to take medications and further laboratory examinations. 

“We are very grateful to Representative Kristine Singson-Meehan, and to the ever generous partner of the DENR, Ilocos Sur Mayor Eric G. Singson of the same town for willingly accepting our request,” Jornacion said. (JCR/JPD/ATV, PIA Ilocos Sur)
