Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon said he is aiming to improve various services and facilities at the city-run Ospital ng Muntinlupa (OsMun) in Alabang, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Biazon visited the hospital last week and inspected its facilities.  

“I think we have to concentrate on making things better in the hospital,” said Biazon during the flag-raising ceremony at the Muntinlupa City hall quadrangle on July 18.

He said during his visit, he talked to people who were waiting outside the hospital. They were relatives and companions of patients but they were not allowed to be in hospital rooms due to existing Covid-19 protocols.  The mayor also talked to officials of the hospital. 

“I think we need to get together to focus on this, to make sure that the public will get the right service that they deserve,” he said. 

In an earlier Facebook post, Biazon said OsMun Medical Director Dr. Edwin Dimatatac agreed that the waiting area should be improved. 

“Nakapag-identify na tayo ng mga lugar na pwedeng lagyan pa ng waiting sheds, dagdag na upuan at electric fans (We have identified areas where we can put waiting sheds, additional chairs and electric fans),” he said. 

Biazon also said he is aiming to provide more incubators and dialysis machines at OsMun. 

He also checked the new OsMun building which was jointly funded by him and former mayor and now Rep. Jaime Fresnedi. 

“Malaking tulong talaga itong bagong building dahil madadagdagan nito ang ICU capacity ng OsMun at magkakaroon din ng additional rooms (The new building will be of great help as it will increase ICU ]intensive care unit] capacity of OsMun and it will also result in additional rooms),” said the mayor. 

The new building will also house the laboratory and operating rooms which will help in freeing up space in the hospital and convert additional bedspace in the hospital’s main building. 

Biazon said he will clean and improve the surroundings of the hospital. Unusable equipment and furniture will be removed and a green space will be built where people can stay.
