June 24, 2021 – In its initiative to help equip partner hospital in the City, Mayor Florencio “Doc Boy” T. Flores, Jr. donated two (2) units of High Flow Nasal Cannula Device at Bethel Baptist Hospital (BBH) costing Php 320,000.
Being a medical doctor by profession, Mayor Flores also allotted Php 1 million intended for Remdesivir, a type of drug administered to admitted Covid-19 patients.
Executive Assistant V Roberto T. Flores, witnessed the turn-over and said, “Being infected with the virus is difficult when we lack the equipment needed for treatment, and especially when it comes to financial issues”. He hoped that more lives will be saved.
Doctors of the said hospital were delighted of the assistance because this will lessen the burden and difficulty of helping confirmed Covid-19 patients admitted in allowed capacity.
Dr. Troy Del Mundo, expressed his joy by saying that the City is fortunate to have a Mayor who is also a Doctor, as it is not difficult to explain the urgency and neccesity of this medical grant in these trying times.
