South Cotabato's Free Hospitalization Program praised in viral post by former National Security Adviser Prof. Carlita Carlos

A recent Facebook post by Professor Carlita Carlos, a renowned Filipino political scientist and former National Security Adviser, has gone viral, praising the free hospitalization program in South Cotabato. As of posting, the post has garnered over 16,000 reactions and thousands of comments since it was posted two days ago.

"Hospitals in South Cotabato don’t have cashiers! All services FREE! Bravo! South Cotabato!" Prof. Carlos wrote, highlighting the province's exceptional healthcare initiative. Her post has sparked widespread admiration and discussion, with many social media users commending the leadership and political will of Governor Reynaldo Sucayan Tamayo Jr. in implementing this groundbreaking policy.

The free hospitalization program, spearheaded by Governor Tamayo, ensures that all services in government-run hospitals within South Cotabato are provided at no cost to patients. This policy is strictly enforced across the provincial hospital in Koronadal City and other provincial government-run hospitals in Norala, Surallah, Tupi, and Polomolok. Additionally, the provincial government offers financial assistance to residents who require treatment in private hospitals.

One follower commented, "Social welfare services like in South Cotabato should be copied by many LGUs. Makati can also do it! Why can't NCR cities do it too? Universal Healthcare for Filipinos," reflecting the sentiment of many who believe this program could serve as a model for other regions.

Another commenter praised the Governor's comprehensive approach, stating, "The brilliant Governor Reynaldo Sucayan Tamayo Jr. made it for the people of South Cotabato. You will pay nothing in South Cotabato Provincial Hospital. I would also like to mention that elementary and secondary education is also free in South Cotabato. This was made possible by the good governor. If you are confined in a private hospital, you will receive assistance from the Provincial Government of South Cotabato. The construction of the Provincial Hospital extension is now ongoing."

Governor Tamayo's administration has also prioritized making dialysis, use of ambulance and other medical services free for residents, further showcasing their commitment to accessible healthcare.

The overwhelming positive response to Prof. Carlos' post underscores the community's appreciation for the provincial government's efforts to improve social welfare and healthcare services. Governor Tamayo's initiatives are not only benefiting the residents of South Cotabato but are also setting a benchmark for other local government units across the country.

As South Cotabato continues to implement and expand its healthcare programs, it remains a beacon of hope and a model of effective governance for other regions to emulate.

Truly, South Cotabato, angat ka sa lahat!
