Biñan marks Hospital’s 13th year

BIñAN, Laguna—Mayor Arman Dimaguila led city officials on Friday in celebrating the 13th anniversary of Biñan Hospital, which now boasts better medical services and state-of-the-art equipment.

“Within seven months of assuming my post as mayor, I am proud to announce that we have transformed our public hospital, thanks to the unity of our local government officials together with our Lone District Rep. Lenlen Alonte Naguiat and hospital head Dr. George Alora,” Dimaguila said. 

“We will continue to improve the services of the hospital, which was built in 2004,” the mayor added. “We will provide additional beds, undertake the expansion of the emergency room, and construct a new building for the out-patient department.”

The hospital, located in Canlalay district, has seen an increasing number of patients arriving from Biñan’s neighboring towns as well as from this city. 

City residents, especially poor families, are entitled to free services at the hospital, a practice that has earned high praise from the national government, Dimaguila stressed.

“The people of Binan deserve a better hospital,” the mayor said.

Biñan Hospital also recently received a “green banner” from the National Nutrition Council for its services to the city’s 24 barangays.

Studies are under way to transfer the city’s Hall of Justice to a lot adjacent to the hospital to facilitate its expansion, which Dimaguila admitted would require additional funds.

Still, he said: “In the city of Biñan, the government and its people can always be counted on.”
