Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) currently implements the second phase of the upgrading of San Miguel District Hospital.

Implemented by Bulacan 2nd District Engineering Office, the redevelopment is expected to have significant benefits for the patients and will enable efficient delivery of healthcare to residents.

“Expansion and improvement of San Miguel District Hospital began in November 2020 and the two-phase project was implemented to provide the town with a more contemporary facility for improved health service delivery,” District Engineer George Santos said. 

The facility is in a 11,867-square meter property along Daang Maharlika in barangay Old Sta. Rita.

It is one of the eight district hospitals managed by the provincial government.

San Miguel District Hospital also serves as a dialysis center for residents of the 3rd Congressional District.

“Once the hospital redevelopment is completed, fewer patients will have to travel to nearby municipalities for medical care and it will be easier for them to be cared for by their loved ones during treatment,” Santos furthered. 

A total of P92.5 million has been allocated under the 2020 and 2022 national budgets for its continuous improvement. (CLJD-PIA 3)
