"No child should die in the dawn of life". - Danny Thomas
Day Therapy Unit
A Day Therapy Unit at the SPMC JICA-Outpatient Care Center caters to patients coming for follow-up, consultation and chemotherapy. This is situated at the first floor of the Outpatient Complex within the Pediatrics Clinics. Patients are seen daily and during regular clinics by Dr Grace Pecson (Mondays 2pm) and Dr Mae Dolendo (Thursdays 3pm). Chemotherapy not requiring admissions are administered during weekdays by doctors. The Day Clinics also entertain referrals, consultations and admit patients to the ward.
The comfortable chemotherapy chairs are donated through the efforts of Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and the Poeng Yue Foundation.
