A total of 3,796 beneficiaries benefited from the free consultation and checkup while 253 patients underwent minor, medium and major operations.

Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado thanked the said association of doctors for their continuous support in serving the underprivileged Bulakenyos.

“Lubos pong umaasa ang inyong abang lingkod na magpapatuloy ang malapit na ugnayan ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Bulacan at ng Philippine Medical Association Medical Mission of Greater St. Louis, Missouri, USA sa mahaba pang panahon upang lalo pang maragdagan ang mga Bulakenyong ating mapaglilingkuran. Taimtim rin po tayong umaasa na ang maikling panahon ng inyong pananatili sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan ay napuno ng kasiyahan, kaluguran at hindi malilimutang alaala na inyong babaunin sa inyong muling pagbabalik,” Alvarado said.

The governor also said that one best way to repay their kindness to the people is to incessantly improve the medical capabilities of public hospitals through modernization of hospital facilities, procurement of medical equipment and medicines, and most importantly, having the heart for public service.

“Lubos ang pasasalamat ko sa lahat ng bumubuo ng medical mission na ito dahil sa tulong ninyo, nasolusyunan ang matagal ko ng iniindang sakit sa tiyan,” Mary Macapagal said, one of the beneficiaries from Brgy. Cutcot, Guiguinto.
