MANILA, Nov. 24 – In line with its efforts to provide adequate medical services to its indigent residents, the Valenzuela City government has formally unveiled its P120-million three-story, 50-bed capacity hospital on G. Lazaro St. in Barangay Dalandanan.

Called the Valenzuela City Emergency Hospital, this new medical facility replaced the flood-prone hospital of the same name and located on Poblacion Road, Barangay Polo.

“The very reason we built this hospital in a better location is to enhance the delivery of health services to the Valenzuelanos,” Valenzuela Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian said.

The new primary healthcare facility, which will officially start serving under the management of the local government on Dec. 1, features modern services and equipment such as ultrasound, X-ray, laboratories, emergency and normal delivery rooms, and a dialysis division with six machines to cater to local residents, especially to the city’s indigent patients.

It has a provision to expand for a third floor which, once completed, will increase its bed capacity to 100.

The old emergency hospital, which had served the constituents since the 1970s, is now closed to the public. (PNA)
