I visited the Escolastica Romero District Hospital in Lubao Pampanga to personally assess the situation and the actual needs of the patients.
I was accompanied by medical director,
Dr. Cenon Ponce and Provincial Board Member Tonton Torres in making the rounds in the hospital’s different facilities.
We also went to see the Diosdado P Macapagal Memorial Hospital in Guagua Pampanga.
As chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, I assured the patients and the medical staff my all out support in upgrading the medical facilities and equipment of both hospitals to ensure highest quality and accessible medical care for all.
Th measure is part of the #UniversalHealthCare program which I am persistenly pushing in the Senate.
I will work vigorously so that the proposed pro-health measure will be approved immediately, hopefully September at the earliest.
