Bacolod City to inaugurate lying-in clinic

Bacolod City (2 June) -- The lying-in clinic and birthing facility that was built in partnership with the Riverside Medical Center is set to be inaugurated on June 15.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia said that Riverside Hospital authorities together with the City Health Office staff are scheduled to hold a test run of the facility anytime this week to prepare for its opening.

The mayor added that the city government has decided to put up a lying-in clinic to help decongest the Western Visayas Regional Hospital and as a precursor to a city hospital that will be built in the near future.

The city government saw the importance of putting up a facility that will provide free health services to many Bacoleņos who cannot afford to seek medical treatment and services, Leonardia said.

The 30-bed facility is a joint project of the Bacolod City Government and the Riverside Medical Center, Inc. who both entered into a memorandum of agreement for the conversion of the City Health Office building into a lying-in and birthing home center.

Riverside Medical Center, who undertook the building renovation, will be in charge with the set up of supplies and equipment at the center while the city government, through the City Health Office, will have direct supervision over the facility.

Facilities found at the lying-in center will include the 30-beds for patients, nursery, emergency room, labor and delivery rooms, reproductive health center and students' dormitory. (CMO/PIA/EAD) [top]
