DPWH TURNS OVER 2 MORE DORMS AT QUEZON MEMORIAL CIRCLE – VILLAR

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has recently turned-over to the local government of Quezon City two additional cluster dormitories inside the Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) as temporary accommodations for medical personnel.

Secretary Mark Villar said the accommodation facilities set-up by DPWH Task Force to Facilitate Augmentation of National and Local Health Facilities will ensure safety and efficiency in the delivery of services of our healthcare workers.

The management and operation of Clusters 5 and 6 “We Heal As One” Off-Site Dormitory which will provide better lodging for the modern heroes was formally turned over to the Quezon City government after it was inspected by National Action Plan Against COVID-19 Chief Implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. together with DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain, and Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte.

“The two cluster dormitories good for 64 medical doctors and staff are in addition to the previously completed four dormitories with total capacity of 128 people.”

Sadain, head of the DPWH Task Force formed by Villar said that the two cluster dormitories good for 64 medical doctors and staff are in addition to the previously completed four dormitories with total capacity of 128 people turned-over by DPWH on July 7.

Each purpose-built cluster dormitory has 16 air-conditioned rooms equipped with double-decker beds to accommodate two persons with toilet and bath with heater.

“The temporary shelter for the frontliners will guarantee that enough medical professionals to safely care for patients are just around the vicinity of major hospitals in Quezon City.”

“The dormitory has living room, complete with TV and sofa, common dining and a separate area for laundry and kitchen with available appliances. The temporary shelter for the frontliners will also guarantee that enough medical professionals to safely care for patients are just around the vicinity of major hospitals in Quezon City,” the public works official added.

Healthcare workers from National Kidney Transplant Institute (NKTI), East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC), Philippine Heart Center (PHC), and Children’s Hospital have availed the earlier completed four dorms at QMC.
