Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon inspects city hospital, bares plans to improve it
Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon inspected the Ospital ng Muntinlupa and found ways to improve its condition and services.
This was among his priorities, said Biazon.
“Isa kasi ang OsMun sa talagang takbuhan ng mga Muntinlupeñong nangangailangan ng tulong medikal kaya prayoridad nating ma-iangat pa ang serbisyo dito,” he said.
One of the things he sought was the improvement of the waiting area for guardians and relatives of patients.
He noted that due to COVID-19 protocols, patients cannot have any watchers and their families and relatives have to wait for them outside.
Their waiting area thus has to be made comfortable, he said.
“Sang-ayon naman si OsMun Medical Director Dr. Edwin Dimatatac na kailangan talagang isaayos at gawing mas maginhawa ang waiting area ng ospital,” he said.
He had identified areas where waiting sheds, additional seats, and electric fans could be installed, he said.
He also said he would do his best to add more incubators and dialysis machines as he discovered that these are among the most used devices.
Biazon likewise inspected the hospital’s new building that he and and former Mayor Jimmy Fresnedi sought funds for when he was the Muntinlupa representative.
The new building would increase the hospital’s ICU capacity and increase its rooms.
It would also house the laboratory and operating rooms, which would free up more space in the main building, he said.
He bared plans to clean up the hospital’s surroundings and to put more green spaces where people could relax.
“Siguradong may mga improvements na isasagawa sa pasilidad ng OsMun para mas maganda ang serbisyo sa darating na panahon,” he said.
