The dedication of the Society of Philippine Surgeons in America(SPSA) to the OSPA-Farmers’ Medical Center (OSPA-FMC) has again been proven. Various hospital equipment, purchased through a fund that the SPSA started early last year, were turned over to the OSPA-FMC last Feb. 27, 2015, with Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez in attendance, along with Dr. Sandra Fiel-Choing – Medical Director, and Mrs. Riza Cabagnot – Hospital Administrator, of the OSPA-FMC.
It may be remembered that the Society of Philippine Surgeons in America, Inc,. after a successful fund-raising campaign initiated and headed by Dr. Hernan Reyes for the relief efforts towards typhoon Yolanda victims in Leyte, turned over last year a brand new ambulance to Cong. Torres-Gomez. The ambulance was delivered to OSPA Hospital which was one of the venues during the 2 past surgical missions of SPSA. The campaign to help the Ormocanos was started at the beginning of the 2014 and was quickly responded to by many SPSA fellows and friends. Dr. Hernan Reyes, founder of the Society and Dr. Rosario Laserna expressed their appreciation to all those who contributed to the fund.
