Zubiri vows accessible health care facilities for Region 12
MANILA, Philippines — Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri has vowed to push for easy access to quality healthcare services in SOCCSKSARGEN once re-elected to the Senate in May 2022 elections.
During the UniTeam’s rally in Sultan Kudarat province on Monday, Zubiri called on region 12 voters to support him anew as he still has many plans for the region.
First of his priority is the construction of health centers in southern central Mindanao to bring health care services closer to patients, citing that they will no longer need to travel to Manila to seek medical treatment. Zubiri promised to help provide kidney, lung, heart, and cancer centers in the region once given another term in the Senate.
Senator Migz also thanked the people of Sultan Kudarat for helping him win the 2007 and 2016 senatorial elections. He assured local leaders to double his project in every municipality in the province to continue supporting Mindanao’s people.
Moreover, Zubiri also shared his support and initiative in Sultan Kudarat during his years of public service.
He allocated funds for constructing a multipurpose building in Columbio City, a public bus terminal in the municipality of Bagong Bayan, and a covered court in Kalamansig.
Senator Zubiri has likewise allotted funds worth 10 million pesos to purchase 20 dialysis machines for Sultan Kudarat Provincial Hospital.
To help displaced communities in the province, Zubiri has funded the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) as part of the DSWD’s protective services for the poor, marginalized, and vulnerable or disadvantaged individuals.
Senator Migz remains amongst the top choices for senators as he ranked fifth in the recent Pulse Asia survey.
