ANGELES CITY – Mayor Carmelo "Pogi" Lazatin, Jr. on Sept. 22 made an ocular inspection at the ongoing construction of the 4-storey building of the Rafael Lazatin Memorial Medical Center, formerly Ospital Ning Angeles, which is set to bring more health services to Angeleños and nearby communities.
Lazatin was accompanied by Department of Public Works and Highways District III Engineer Arleen D. Beltran and Assistant District Engineer Arnold R. Ocampo.
The hospital building will also have P100-million worth of state-of-the art medical equipment. This, in addition to dialysis machines to address the needs of Angeleños, especially those in the marginalized sector.
Lazatin noted that in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, the RLMMC has extended its services not only to the residents but also to those of nearby towns and cities.
Hospital construction is part of the health priorities of the Lazatin administration, as he has also revitalized all six rural health units and 28 sub-health centers for free medicines.
The Puso Center three-in-one clinic was also established to give free health services for animal bite treatment, minor surgeries, and consultation at the city hall compound and RHU-VI in Barangay Pulung Cacutud.
