COMEBACKING Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim said he wanted to put up “Super Health Centers” in Manila’s six districts, similar to the free health services offered by the city-run hospitals which he built during his administration.
Lim, who is running under the ruling PDP-Laban party headed by President Rodrigo Duterte, said this during a discussion yesterday with vendors and consumers at the Trabajo Market in Sampaloc, Manila.
The town was “painted red” when the vendors and marketgoers who asked for Lim’s campaign give-away t-shirts wore them as they hailed and cheered on Lim to win in the coming elections.
Lim said the “Super Health Centers” he plans to build will complement the six city hospitals and the already existing 59 barangay health centers that were all established during his administration.
The new centers will be like mini-hospitals that will have facilities such as CT scan, x-ray machine and other equipments to accommodate minor surgery.
This way, Lim said, those in need of immediate medical attention would no longer have to spend money on transportation if the services they would need from the city hospitals are already available in a “Super Health Center” near them.
