3 Rizal hospitals get P27-M facelift

By Beverly T. Natividad, Philippine Daily Inquirer

The Rizal provincial government has allotted P27 million for the rehabilitation and upgrading of three of its six public hospitals, particularly those damaged by tropical storm “Ondoy” (international codename: Ketsana) last year.

The latest report of the provincial engineer’s office showed that the local government has spent P15.4 million for the renovation of Rizal Provincial Hospital in Morong, and P1.9 million for Pililla Medicare Community Hospital.

Apart from rehabilitation work, the funding also covered provisions for new medical equipment
in the two hospitals.

These two government hospitals were damaged during the onslaught of Ondoy in September 2009. The whole ground floor of Rizal Provincial Hospital was submerged in floodwater.

In a statement, reelected Gov. Casimiro Ynares III said the provincial hospitals had undergone improvements and were given new facilities to meet the standards for a tertiary hospital.

Some of the new equipment brought in were machinery for X-ray, ultrasound, electro-cautery, ECG, autoclave, infant incubation, Doppler, and for taking of blood pressure.

Another P9.7 million was allocated by the provincial government for the ongoing renovation of Angono General Hospital to improve its medical services
