The newly constructed rural health building of Valencia town will soon acquire new medical equipment following the release of half a million-peso financial assistance from Senator Teofisto Guingona III.
Department of Budget Management (DBM-7) regional director Carmela Fernan said the money is already deposited at the Development Bank of the Philippines and is credited to the account of the municipality.
The money is from the Priority Development Assistance Fund of Sen. Guingona.
Valencia Mayor Ricky Gonzalez said priority in the medical equipment lists to be purchased include dental chair, hospital beds, delivery tables, mobile aneroid sphygmomanometer, wheeled stretcher, among others.
“Procuring the said items is now on process,” Mayor Gonzalez said
Mayor Gonzalez sought the assistance of Senator Guingona to provide the rural health unit with new medical equipment to improve the delivery of health services to the people.
The town of Valencia acquired its P20-million rural health building early this year through a donation from the Energy Development Corporation, where the latter operates a geothermal steam field. (www.ugnayan.com)
