Navotas City Mayor John Rey Tiangco and Rep. Toby Tiangco led the blessing and inauguration of the Navotas Medical and Wellness Center in Barangay San Jose.

The center will provide community-based rehabilitation and physical therapy, drug testing, animal bite treatment, clinical laboratory, and diagnostic services, such as ultrasound, ECG, and x-ray.

It will also offer dental services, teen health services, social hygiene services, breast checkup and mammography, and environmental and sanitation services.

The four-story building, which replaces the former Navotas Emergency and Lying-in Clinic, will also house the city’s Health Emergency and Management System Office and Operation Center.

In his speech  at the inauguration, Mayor Tiangco emphasized the city’s priority of giving Navoteños quality healthcare services.

“Keeping our people in good health is crucial as we endeavor to help them change their life for the better,” he said. “Our city’s population continues to grow thus adding more social infrastructure and services is vital to ensure that the needs of each Navoteño are met.”

Navotas has a hospital with a hemodialysis unit, 11 health centers, community-based rehabilitation and physical therapy clinics, and others.

The city is also in the process of constructing the Navotas City Hospital (NCH) annex, which will increase the NCH bed capacity from 50 to 100.

Meanwhile, Rep. Tiangco reminded the center’s personnel to always serve with compassion.

“Patients who come to us for help are burdened physically. More often than not, they are also emotionally and financially laden. Let us give them our utmost care and empathy,” he said.

Also present in the inauguration were Vice Mayor Clint Geronimo, Councilors Neil Adrian Cruz, Arnel Lupisan, and Steve Naval, former Councilor Eduardo Maño, Association of Barangay Captains - Navotas President Ricky Gino-Gino together with District 2 barangay captains, and the city department heads.
