BEFORE leaving the Quezon City chief executive post on June 30, outgoing mayor Herbert Bautista ensured the construction of a new hospital that would offer free consultations, X-ray, ultrasound that includes diagnostic and OB-gyne services.
Bautista led the inauguration of the Rosario Maclang Hospital yesterday morning. The hospital is one of the many projects he has accomplished during his nine-year term.
The actor-turned politician will turn his seat over to vice mayor Joy Belmonte, the overwhelming winner in the just concluded midterm elections.
Belmonte defeated fierce opponent Vincent “Bingbong” Crisologo by more than 100,000 votes in tandem with Gian Carlo Sotto who also was proclaimed winner in the vice mayoral contest.
The newest hospital in the city located in Bgy. Batasan is a three-storey building and a Level 2 medical facility accredited by the Department of Health.
Equipped with facilities for trauma care, the Rosario Maclang Hospital is able to provide immediate care to those in need. The new hospital will also cater selected dental and laboratory services.
