Hi-Precision Diagnostics offered free laboratory services to give the 150 beneficiaries of their medical mission an idea of their current health status.

Noemi Guliban, head of the center’s Mandaue City branch, said the conduct of the medical mission was their way of giving back to the people of Barangay Maguikay. Hi-Precision Diagnostics Mandaue City branch is located at the Diamond Plaza, M.C. Briones Street in Barangay Maguikay.

Noemi Guliban, officer-in-charge at HPD in Mandaue City, said the activity is a means of giving back to the community and instilling the importance of routine medical check-ups in maintaining optimum health and early detection of medical conditions among the community members.

Hi-Precision staff provided fasting blood sugar, cholesterol, and complete blood count (CBC) tests in the morning and consultation and evaluation of their test results in the afternoon. 

“Plan ni siya 2021 pa but since Odette came, namove. It is a way to give back to the community nga throughout the pandemic, nianhi gihapon sila sa Hi-Precision especially sa Mandaue nga branch,” Guliban said.

(We have planned this medical mission in 2021 yet but since Typhoon Odette came, we had to move it to a later date. This is a way to give back to the community that had been part of Hi-Precision, especially the Mandaue branch, throughout the pandemic.)

Guliban said early detection is very crucial in the proper management of a patient’s health condition.  This would also prevent any sickness from getting worse.

“We highlight unsa ka important ang affordable nga mga tests and to show that these tests are available at Hi-Precision,”

Mandaue as hub in the north
