More health, day care centers up in Las Piñas this year
Additional modern health facility and pre-school center are this year’s major infrastructure endeavors being put in place in Las Piñas to enhance efficiency and accessibility in the delivery of service to the residents and hasten economic growth of the city.
Mayor Vergel ‘Nene’ Aguilar said a two-storey health center is up for construction at Bernabe Compound in Brgy. Pulanglupa 1, a densely populated area in the city. This makes a total of 31 modern and fully-equipped health facilities serving the residents in the city’s 22 barangays.
Also, a two-storey pre-school center will rise on Fatima Subdivision in Zapote, bringing to 80 the overall number of daycare centers in the city where kids enjoy totally free-tuition and nutritious snacks.
“We aim to provide only quality and efficient services to the residents in spite of our limited resources and enhance viable livelihood opportunities for everyone,” Aguilar said.
He pointed out that new infrastructures point toward ensuring health and basic medical services and more education facilities are to address the growing population in the city’s public schools. This is complemented by road network improvements to hasten economic growth.
This year’s development projects are in addition to 45 infrastructure projects completed early this year including concreting, rehabilitation and/or repairs of 19 road networks in various parts of the city; rip-rapping works on Las Piñas river, creeks and waterways; bridge construction; upgrading of drainage system in six (6) critical areas; construction of multi-purpose halls; repair and rehabilitation of barangay halls; and installation of streetlights along the main roads.
