NEW CLARK CITY- – Athletes competing in the 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games, and eventually the community within and nearby New Clark City (NCC), will now benefit from the extended services of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH).
University of the Philippines-PGH Director Gerardo D. Legaspi said during the SEA Games, the PGH Polyclinic will be equipped with a 24-hour Emergency Room Facility, Primary Care and Sports Medicine, Dentistry, Ophthalmology, Imaging Center (X-ray and Ultrasound), Diagnostic Laboratory and Pharmacy.
He said the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) provided the equipment needed for the facility.
“We would like to assure the BCDA and the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee that we will do our share in making sure that this goes on,” Legaspi added.
The PGH Polyclinic is the first of three phases. The second phase is a 25-bed hospital and the third phase will be a 250-bed hospital.
