The Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC) has inaugurated its new Cancer Center over the weekend.

The new Cancer Center aims to make treatment for the disease more affordable to patients especially those who need to seek treatment elsewhere.

"Cancer patients will no longer go to Manila,Cebu or Davao for treatment as the cancer center is 98% complete and the LINAC machine is expected to arrive and be installed before the year ends," said First District Congressman Celso Lobregat.

Lobregat reportedly assisted the medical facility in obtaining P333.9-million in funding for the center.

In his conversation with DOH Undersecretary Roger Tong-an, Congressman Lobregat committed to continue assisting ZCMC in the implementation of its major infrastructure programs as well as the continued delivery of health services to the people of Zamboanga City and Western Mindanao Region.  (Dexter Yap)
