by Erlinda T. Yutuc

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Jan 14 (PIA) -- Governor Lilia G. Pineda led concerned government officials in the inauguration ceremonies of The newly-completed P35 million-worth Dr. Andres Luciano District Hospital, formerly known as Balitucan District Hospital, in barangay San Pablo, Magalang town finally opened to patients and health seekers.

The hospital is designed to provide needed medical services to residents of Magalang town and nearby municipalities of Mexico, Arayat, Mabalacat, and San Luis, among others.

In her message, Governor Lilia Pineda said that the completion of the district hospital is a dream come true for Kapampangans particularly for those who live within the vicinity.

Complete with new equipment and facilities which include a birthing station worth P5 million funded by the Department of Health (DOH), the hospital is at par with some private hospitals in the province.

The governor instructed the hospital medical practitioners and staff to complement the new hospital and facilities and provide equally good service and treatment to their patients and clients.

“Masanting ya ing ospital tamu, dapat masanting din ing serbisyu,” (Our hospital is now better, the services must be better as well) Pineda said to the medical staff as she warned them that any report of disservice or maltreatment will definitely be dealt with accordingly.

The governor is now also working for the completion of the doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel to man the hospital which has a 50-bed capacity.

She likewise ordered the hospital pharmacist and medical supply officer to always ensure the availability of medicine supply and submit the necessary requisition to concerned officials at least three months before the supply ends.

Congressman Carmelo F. Lazatin who graced the inauguration ceremonies committed to provide P1 million funds for medicines and other medical supplies for the district hospital.(WLB/ETY Pampanga PIO)
