AN­GE­LES CITY – Mayor Edgar do Pam­intuan and ViceMayor Bryan Matthew Ne­po­mu­ceno led the turnover cer­e­mony of two new am­bu­lances to the Ospi­tal ning An­ge­les (ONA) af­ter the flag rais­ing rites, Mon­day at the city hall com­pound.

“Our emer­gency re­sponse team can now ac­com­mo­date more pa­tients with the new am­bu­lances. We are very thank­ful to our lo­cal gov­ern­ment for ex­tend­ing help and as­sis­tance to our hospi­tal and pa­tients,” said Dr. Rodel Dungca, ONA OIC-Chief of Hospi­tal.

“Mayor Ed Pam­intuan gave our peo­ple hope in es­tab­lish­ing ONA be­cause peo­ple can now have a place to go to for their med­i­cal needs where they don’t have to worry about the high cost of ser­vices in pri­vate hos­pi­tals,” Dungca fur­thered.

In 2017, there was an av­er­age of 700 pa­tients per month and 200 to 300 con­sul­ta­tions per day in ONA.

Just re­cently, ONA has ac­quired four ad­di­tional hemodial­y­sis ma­chines for the Re­nal Care Unit. This was made pos­si­ble af­ter the city was rec­og­nized for the 2016 Seal of Good Lo­cal Gov­er­nance award given by the Depart­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment (DILG).

An­other recog­ni­tion given to ONA is the Best Prac­tices in In­fec­tion Pre­ven­tion Con­trol. It was given dur­ing the 68th an­nual na­tional con­ven­tion of the Philip­pine Hospi­tal As­so­ci­a­tion (PHA). ONA has passed the stan­dards in terms of clean­li­ness, san­i­ta­tion, and in­fec­tion contr ol .

Pam­intuan ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to all the peo­ple work­ing in ONA for be­ing able to give peo­ple their best ef­forts.

“For years, peo­ple have been put­ting their trust to the Ospi­tal ning An­ge­les. This is be­cause of our hard­work­ing doc­tors, nurses, and staffs who con­tin­u­ally de­liver qual­ity ser­vice for the med­i­cal needs of the An­geleños,” said Pam­intuan.

Mean­while, for the year 2018, ONA plans to build a pace­maker cen­ter to help peo­ple with heart ail­ments which cause ir­reg­u­lar heart­beat. A 24/ 7 ra­bies cen­ter is also in­cluded in its projects to give bet­ter

mon­i­tor­ing and treat­ment for the pa­tients. Also, the bac­te­ri­ol­ogy depart­ment is now un­der ex­pan­sion in or­der to meet the re­quire­ment from the Depart­ment of Health (DoH) for the level 2 ac­cred­i­ta­tion.— AC-CIO
