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 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.
