Last December 5, 2011, the Management of the DPOTMH officially opened and blessed the new Chemotherapy & Blood Transfusion Room at the 2nd floor of the Hospital. The fully air-conditioned room is equipped with four La-Z Boy-type chairs and a TV set for the convenience and comfort of patients. All infusion procedures, including chemotherapy and similar IV procedures, may be performed in this area. Patients may choose to schedule an appointment through their doctor or through the Emergency Room.

Also included in the blessing were the nearby offices and call room of the Departments of Internal Medicine, Surgery, ENT/Ortho, and Anesthesia.

The blessing was attended by DPOTMH President Arlene Ledesma, Materials Management Head Mark Torre, Corporate Finance Officer Socorro Victoria De Leon, Total Quality Head Dr. Henry Alavaren, and Asst. Medical Director Dr. Ma. Antonia Gensoli. Consultants and residents of the above departments were also present. The DPOTMH Chaplain, Fr. Dominic Dexter Somcio, officiated the blessing.
