The lack of healthcare alternatives in Dumaguete City has been a constant struggle to the general public and government. With only 3 hospitals serving hundred thousands in Dumaguete and nearby regions in the Eastern Province, traffic decongestion is an urgent concern. Existing healthcare facilities are short on specialized equipment within these hospitals. Alternatives to basic healthcare options are an utmost priority.
The Edgar Pasimio Memorial Clinic will cater to the general public and university community, with planned facilities including: four examination rooms, laboratory room, pharmacy, staff office and support spaces. The clinic will assist walk-in patients and appointments for outpatient care and the pharmacy will be open during regular business hours with off-street dispensary window for customer convenience.
The Edgar Pasimio Memorial Clinic's mission is to offer state-of-the-art facilities and equal access to healthcare. The clinic provides an alternative option to quality healthcare by expanding outpatient healthcare within the university campus. The location for the clinic will decongest patient load at nearby hospitals and provide the opportunity to advance the skills in nursing education.
