“We expect to serve more patients. Right now, we have more space, more modern facility, and more high-tech equipment to better serve the public,” Kunting said.
The new OPD is located in a recently completed four-storey building worth PHP114 million. It also has a spacious parking area.
The services include dental, pediatrics, obstetrician-gynecology, orthopedics, internal medicine, surgery, family medicine, ultrasound, laboratory, eye, ear, nose, and throat.
