Boracay Island Hospital

The Boracay Island Hospital is one of the many medical service providers you can turn to when visiting the island. Even if you are in the pink of health, knowledge of the hospital and some health tips will be vital.
 
Location and How to Get There
 
The hospital can be found along the main road. You will see that it is located in the very center of the island. All the tricycle drivers will be very familiar with the place, so you should have no problems getting to the site. The local residents will also know the building quite well. It is really difficult to miss since it is in the center of the island. 
 
Emergency Numbers
 
If you have inquiries or in need of an emergency, you can call the following number: +63-36-288-3041. The residents of the island have to call this number: 141. Aside from emergencies, you can also go there for general checkups and consultations as well. 
 
History
 
The Boracay Island Hospital is a government hospital. It is run by Dr. Edwin I. Ilarina. To meet the demands of the community, not to mention the growing number of tourists that visit the place, the facility was established. 
 
As a government hospital, the facility is designed to provide efficient service at low costs. It is open throughout the day, and there are qualified doctors that can take care of you. 
 
Other Information 
 
The most common health problem that can affect visitors on the island is dehydration. Fortunately, this is very easy to avoid; just drink lots of water. If you plan to go hiking, bring a few bottles along. You should also have some extra clothes. If the sweat dries out, you could catch a cold. 
 
Bathing on the beach is fun, but you should take care not to get sunburns. Apply sunblock all over your body. You may also put on sunglasses to protect your eyes. 
 
Always be aware of symptoms of heatstroke or dehydration. If you feel dizziness, nausea, stomach cramps, LBM (loose bowel movement) and vomiting, go to the hospital immediately. If the doctor prescribes a medication, always follow the instructions. Never self prescribe medication, especially antibiotics. 
 
The Boracay Island Hospital, indeed any medical facility, is not the place you want to end up in when you are on vacation. But it is better to be aware of their location and contact number just in case you need them.
