San Fernando eyed as global smart city

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — This city is set to become a global smart city in terms of social development where citizens live in a healthy, safe, and sustainable environment with sufficient economic opportunities.

This was the statement made by Mayor Vilma Caluag during her first 100 days report, citing that the City of San Fernando is capable of becoming one.

“For the following days to come, let us be together and destroy whatever that hinders us to… Let us help each other to become bridges that will connect hope to all Fernandinos… Let us cross the bridge and see what is on the other side so we could learn to be more compassionate and kind,” she said.

Part of her administration’s thrust is for the city to have a rich cultural heritage, stronger public governance, and responsible citizenry. She added that her administration aims to deliver excellent quality healthcare to the public.

The local chief executive inaugurated the first Fernandino hemodialysis center located at the City Civic Center compound in barangay San Isidro.

The official assured her constituents that medical services such as this would no cost an arm and a leg.

She also said that the construction and operation will not cost the city any monetary requirement as it was built through a public-private partnership with Luzon Medical System.

At present, the center has 25 dialysis machines that can cater to about 75 patients daily, and is awaiting its license to operate before it begins to give treatment to indigent Fernandinos.
