Cebu North General Hospital introduces another exciting milestone as it celebrates 17 years of compassionate, high-quality and innovative healthcare – the all-new Chemical Dependents Control and Rehabilitation Center (CDCare).

Continued excellence in healthcare

Founded in 1980 as Kauswagan Community Hospital, North General Hospital (NorthGen) became one of the developing affiliate hospitals of CebuDoc Group since 2002.

“Cebu North General Hospital is a fast growing hospital with 17 years in operation. Right now, we have already reached the level of providing excellent and exceptional services to the people”, said Engr. Russell Mastusa, North General Hospital Administrator.

NorthGen commits to operate with high-quality healthcare which CebuDoc Group is known for. In which, it has already started streamlining its specialty healthcare operations when it introduced Mother and Child Center last May 2018.

Today, NorthGen reintroduces an existing unique hospital service which has not been quite familiar to many – the CDCare.

The First Private Hospital-based CDCARe in VISMIN

NorthGen relaunches the first private hospital-based Chemical Dependents Control and Rehab Center in the Visayas and Mindanao that features a 48-bed facility with amenities such as library, multi-purpose halls, detoxification rooms, and the like. It also has an accommodation such as private, semi-private, and pay ward rooms.

“We decided to reintroduce CDCare to let the people know that NorthGen offers excellent services, facilities and specialized centers”, Engr. Mastusa explained.

NorthGen's CDCare offers comprehensive programs which aims to addresses the problems of patients with a continuum of care and focus on the individual – a first for a private hospital in the region.

Staffed with a well-rounded team of psychiatrists, psychologists, and nurses, CDCare is positioned to be a temporary shelter intended to reform drug offenders and members of the society that needs mental aid.

“The main goal of CDCare is to provide treatment to chemical dependents and to address co-morbidities or dual diagnosis within a program that believes in the biopsychosocial and spiritual approach”, said Mr. Manuel Delos Santos, CDCare Program Director.

NorthGen also boasts its comprehensive and holistic programs for the patients that is duly recognized and accredited by the governing bodies and regulatory authorities including Department of Health.

“Our programs are the main strength of this facility. We have comprehensive, continuum, and individualized programs offered for the patients. NorthGen CDCARe is also a DOH licensed and accredited rehabilitation and DOH–accredited practitioner for chemical dependents rehabilitation”, Mr. Delos Santos explained.

According to Mr. Delos Santos, they envision the center to be able to accommodate more psychiatric patients since it is NorthGen’s vision is to be the standard bearer of integrated health that considers all aspects of health.

A stress-free healing environment

NorthGen is ideally situated in a stress-free environment where patients can experience peace and harmony while recuperating – staying away from all the stressors and triggers.

“In here, we provide utmost services to our patient that could help them in recovering faster. We thought that when battling a chronic or life-threatening disease, the focus is often the battle at hand. Little thought has been given to the importance of creating an environment that reduces stress and promotes healing”, Engr. Mastusa added.
