PESO HELP DESK SET UP IN NAVOTAS SCHOOLS

NAVOTAS City Mayor John Rey Tiangco has entered into a memorandum of agreement for the establishment of a Public Employment Service Office Help Desk in Navotas Polytechnic College and all senior high schools in Navotas.

He signed the agreement with Dr. Meliton Zurbano, Schools Division Superintendent; Dr. Joel Chavez, NPC President; and Rey Sanglay, Supervising Labor and Employment Officer of Department of Labor and Employment-CAMANAVA.

“Through the PESO Desks, Navoteño youth will be more guided, prepared, and equipped for the career they wish to pursue.”

“But more than being career-ready, we hope young Navoteños will develop discipline, critical and creative thinking, emotional stability, adaptability, and other skills and values that will help become successful in life,” he added.

Good Financial Housekeeping

The city government has once again passed the Good Financial Housekeeping standards of the Department of the Interior and Local Government for the year 2023.

“This recognition is a testament to our commitment to transparent and honest utilization of public funds, ensuring that they are spent towards programs and services that contribute to the welfare of Navoteños,” the Navotas chief executive said.

Navotas has also obtained Commission on Audit’s unmodified opinion, the highest mark it can give a local government unit or government agency, for eight consecutive years.

It is the only LGU in Metro Manila with such a track record!

                        Free Dialysis Sessions

The Navotas City Hospital has beefed up its capacity to provide free dialysis treatment following the blessing of eight new hemodialysis machines.

The mayor led other key city officials during the blessing of the dialysis units at NCH.

From 15, the city hospital can now accommodate 21 sessions per day for non-infectious patients. One machine or three sessions are intended for those with infectious diseases.

“We seek to provide the best possible medical services that’s why we also strive to keep our equipment and facilities in top shape,” Tiangco said.

PhilHealth members can avail up to 156 free hemodialysis sessions every year.

Upon or before reaching this limit, Navoteño patients are enrolled in national and local medical assistance programs to help defray the P2,600 cost per session.

Patients avail two-three dialysis treatments per week.
