La Union 2nd District Representative Sandra Eriguel’s measure seeking to upgrade the La Union Medical Center has been signed by President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte signed Republic Act 11083 last September 23.
The law increases the hospital’s bed capacity from 100 to 300.
It also seeks to establish a trauma center.
“This would also mean an increase in the number of medical personnel and appropriating the necessary fund for expansion of La Union Medical Center, which is considered the premier medical facility in the province,” she said.
