Nickel Asia, Taganito Mining, Taganito HPAL bring health care to own communities

NICKEL Asia Corporation (NAC), with its subsidiaries, Taganito Mining Corporation and Taganito HPAL Nickel Corporation (THPAL), leads a team of 40 doctors and volunteers from the Manila Adventist Medical Center and FEU Medical Society of California in providing health care to about 2,000 individuals from the mining communities of Surigao del Norte and Dinagat Islands during a three-day medical mission on February 18-21, 2012.

The team of doctors and surgeons, nurses-volunteers, pharmacists and medical assistants provided consultations, free medical lab tests, CP clearances and even minor surgeries to residents of Taganito, Cagdianao, Hayanggabon and Urbiztondo in the municipality of Claver, Surigao del Norte.

“We have been doing this for years, a simple way to make available our talents in serving humanity,” says Dr. Archie La Madrid, the mission’s team leader.

Dr. Leonita P. Gorgolon from the Department of Health (DOH) Caraga gave her support by providing access to the Caraga Regional Hospital (CRH) in Surigao City for the major and minor surgeries. The DOH also commissioned the support of about 50 CRH staff, including their own surgeons, nurses and other medical volunteers.

The doctors and volunteers performed 59 major surgeries mostly for Thyroidectomy, Herniorraphy and Ophorectomy, including medium reconstructive surgery, orthopedic work, and others. Some 109 minor surgeries were conducted mostly of sebaceous/tendon cyst, lipoma, cleft lip and other reconstructive surgeries. (Manny Balbin/Journal)
