The Historical Barasoain Church in Malolos City, Bulacan served as a venue for another milestone in the life of Bulacaños as it once again hosted the 115th Independence Day Celebration with a theme “Ambagan Tungo sa Malawakang Kaunlaran” on June12, 2013.
Naging espesyal ang pagpapasinaya ng bagong gusali ng Philippine National Police (PNP) sa bayan ng Paombong, Bulacan noong ika-6 ng Hunyo 2012 sa pagdating ng Kalihim ng Kagawaran ng Interyor at Lokal na Pamahalaan na si Ginoong Jesse M. Robredo bilang panauhing pandanggal.
The Provincial Government of Bulacan (PGB) initially delivered last March 8, 2012, the medical equipment and facilities, amounting to Php 3M, for Bulacan Medical Center (BMC) consisting of the following: nine (9) units Patient Monitor, one (1) unit ECG Machine, one (1) unit Fetal/Maternal Monitor, four (4) units Fetal Heart Rate Doppler and one (1) unit Delivery Table. Said medical equipment and facilities were funded out of the Local Government Support Fund (LGSF). LGSF is a fund released by the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Department of Budget and Management to provinces, cities and municipalities which have passed the DILG’s Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH). Funds were released to LGUs that have been awarded the Seal to promote good governance among local government units. The provincial government received a total amount of Php 40M of the said fund.
Last year, the Provincial Government has just completed the construction of its new maternity and emergency clinic in the Bulacan Medical Center but the said clinic does not have the needed medical equipment to be fully operational. Gov. Willy M. Sy-Alvarado said that the LGSF-support project is indeed very timely because of the ongoing improvement and upgrading of the health and medical services of the public hospitals in Bulacan. Other public hospitals which will soon avail of the LGSF in the form of medical equipment & facilities are the following: Rogaciano Mercadon Memorial Hospital, Bulacan District Hospital Equipment, San Miguel District Hospital, Gregorio del Pilar District Hospital, Emilio G. Perez District Hospital and the Calumpit District Hospital.
