Press Release/15 January 2021

Department of Health (DOH) – CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo today lauded the initiative of the local officials of Quezon province for the construction of the Lucena City General Hospital (LCGH) as the regional health office bears witness to the grounding ceremony held in Barangay Mayao Parada, Lucena City on January 15, 2021.

The event was led by Quezon 2nd District Representative David Suarez. The LCGH is a priority project of the congressman together with Alona Party List Representative Anna Villaraza-Suarez and Quezon Provincial Governor Danilo Suarez.

“This hospital, once completed, will decongest the Quezon Medical Center and will provide more health services not only in the city but in the entire province of Quezon,” Rep. Suarez stated in his speech.

The construction of LCGH is an initiative of the local government of Quezon province.

“Napakahalaga ng proyektong ito sa probinsya ng Quezon dahil matutugunan nito ang mga iba pang pangangailangang pangkalusugan ng mga residente.” Regional Director Janairo emphasized.

“Nagpapasalanat ako sa ating mga lokal na pamahalaan, sa kanilang inisyatibong magkaroon pa ng isang ospital upang magbigay ng karagdagang serbisyo sa mga mamamayan at upang maiwasan na ang pagpunta sa malayong ospital upang magpagamot.”

“Kailangan nating palakasin ang ating primary health care system upang mapabuti ang kalusugan sa mga komunidad at magagawa natin ito sa tulong ng ating mga local government units,” he added.

Meanwhile, Senator Bong Go, who is the guest of honor during the ceremony vowed to extend financial support in the construction of the facility.

“Tutulungan natin ang probinsya ng Quezon sa proyektong ito upang mas marami pa tayong Pilipino na mabibigyan ng libreng pangangailangan sa kanilang kalusugan, sa kanilang gamot at lahat ng ito ay ibibigay natin ng libre lalo na sa lahat ng mahihirap nating kababayan,” he assured.
