ZAMBOANGA CITY, Jan. 17 (PIA) -- State owned- Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC) gets the health departmentís priority attention for development.

Department of Health (DOH) has listed ZCMC as a priority hospital to get physical development, equipment upgrade, health services upgrade and other assistance said Regional Director Aristides Tan.
