Bulakeños look forward to better health care

SAN MIGUEL, Bulacan  – Northern and eastern Bulacan and those from neighboring Nueva Ecija communities can look forward to improve delivery of quality medical and health care services with the ongoing upgrading of San Miguel District Hospital in this town.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan said the redevelopment project under two phases will enable the facility to be more responsive to the growing health care needs of local residents.

Based on a report submitted by DPWH-Region 3 Director Roseller A. Tolentino, the DPWH Bulacan Second District Engineering Office (DEO) is currently in its second phase of implementing the expansion and improvement of the district hospital that sits on an 11,867-square meter property located along Daang Maharlika in Barangay Old Sta. Rita.

A total of P92.5 million sourced from the 2020 and 2022 national budgets has been allocated for the enhancement of San Miguel District Hospital, one of the eight district hospitals managed by the provincial government.

Aside from providing basic medical services, it also acts as a dialysis center for the entire third district of the province composed of the municipalities of Doña Remedios Trinidad, San Ildefonso, San Miguel and San Rafael.

Once completed, San Miguel and nearby towns will have a hospital equipped with a contemporary facility that benefits patients and locals through efficient delivery of improved health services.
