House Committee on Health chairperson Angelina Tan on Tuesday lauded the Senate approval of the measure establishing the Southern Luzon Multi-Specialty Medical Center in Tayabas, Quezon.

Tan said the proposed hospital will be the first hospital for various diseases in Southern Tagalog and one of the apex hospitals or end-referral hospitals in the area.

“Napakalaking tulong kung tuluyan na ngang maisasabatas ang pagtatayo ng ospital dahil hindi na magsisiksikan ang maraming mga pasyente sa Kamaynilaan upang magpagamot at higit na mabibigyan ng kagyat na atensyong medikal ang mga may karamdaman sa Southern Tagalog na siyang itinuturing ngayon na may pinakamataas na bilang ng populasyon sa buong bansa,” Tan said.

Tan and Quezon Rep. Wilfrido Mark Enverga authored the proposal.

Tan said the passage of the measure is also in line with the purpose of the Universal Health Care (UHC) Act, which she also authored.

“Ito po ay isang malaking hakbang sa pag-abot ng ating pangarap na kalusugan para sa lahat ng Pilipino,” the lady solon said.
