SAN SIMON -- The Provincial Government disclosed that another community hospital is set to be constructed in Barangay Santo Niño in this town.
The project will be realized through a private and public partnership, said Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda.
A local businessman, a certain Don Pangan, donated a one-hectare lot in said barangay for the dispensary.
Pineda in a recent visit in the town expressed her full support to the proposed undertaking, which is expected to benefit thousands of residents coming from the 14 barangays here.
The hospital is expected to serve the medical needs of residents in the neighboring towns of Apalit, Sto. Tomas and San Luis.
Pineda said that she will urge the provincial board to allocate funds for the construction of the hospital.
