I visited the Dr. Jose P. Rizal Memorial District Hospital in Calamba Laguna to personally assess the situation and the actual needs of the patients.

I was accompanied by Laguna Board Member Ruth Matiano Hernandez and some hospital officials in making the rounds in the hospital’s different facilities.

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 Dr. Jose P. Rizal Menorial District Hospital to ensure highest quality and accessible medical care for all.

This is part of the Universal Health Care program which I am persistenly pushing in the Senate. The said measure is expected to pass into a law this year.

Maraming Salamat Governor Ramil Hernandez, mayors and other province officials for the really warm welcome.
