City-owned dialysis center rising in Himamaylan


Mayor Raymund Tongson confirmed that the city government of Himamaylan is putting up a new dialysis center to cater to kidney patients who are undergoing dialysis.

Tongson said the construction of the city-owned dialysis center is sourced out from the 20% Development Fund for year 2020. The proposed dialysis center will cost P8,000,000 and will be situated within the City Health Office of Himamaylan, as stated on Appropriation Ordinance No. 19-06, which was passed by the city council last December 16, 2019.

The dialysis center is the first major project made possible through the Public-Private Partnership for People (P4) Ordinance, Vice Mayor Justin Gatuslao said.

He added: “This is a legacy healthcare initiative of the TOGA (Tongson-Gatuslao) Administration for the people of Himamaylan and southern Negros, which was developed – policy to negotiation to infrastructure – from scratch.”

Under the agreement, the dialysis center will be managed by Nephro Synergies as private partner. A memorandum of agreement was entered into between Nephro Synergies and the city last July 24, 2020.
