The Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital (STRH), formerly known as Bacoor District Hospital, will be able to provide more healthcare services as it upgraded its facilities.
The new facilities at STRH were formally opened to the public on Thursday, and they include the following:
- Emergency Tent
- OB UHC (Universal Health Care) Ward
- Animal Bite Treatment Center
- Cancer Clinic
- Waiting Area
The Department of Health (DOH) and the city government of Bacoor believe these upgrades would improve the region’s healthcare system.
Last July, this Level 3 general hospital opened the country’s 127th Malasakit Center, a One-Stop-Shop where indigent patients can efficiently access financial medical assistance from government-controlled agencies.
This is the 11th assistance center in CALABARZON and the second in the province, following the General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital in Trece Martires City, which opened in January 2020.
Deputy Speaker Strike Revilla thanked all the medical workers and the national government for assisting him in providing high-quality medical care.
“Gayundin saludo ako sa lahat ng ating mga medical frontliners. Magtulungan po tayo at patuloy na magdasal and we will strike COVID-19,” Revilla said in a Facebook video.
