Sagot ng SM! Labella finds space for dialysis patients amid COVID-19

0

Hospitals have become a potentially dangerous place for Cebuanos out to get their regular dialysis treatment, so here’s a fix.

Mayor Edgar Labella said the Cebu City government is accommodating requests from dialysis patients, who have been effectively displaced from hospitals as their LGU grapples with surging COVID-19 infections.

The city hall acted as mediator and found a compromise, courtesy of the bilyonaryo Sy family.

“We thank SM City Cebu (Official) for offering us a space where the facility and equipment can be established to ensure that our immunocompromised patients are safe from infection,” the politiko said, adding that the Department of Health is moving 20 units for hemodialysis machines to their new home.
