The Los Baños municipality is making primary healthcare more accessible and convenient to the communities by establishing ambulatory units all over the town.
The 24-hour ambulatory clinics will render free medical services for simple and emergency cases, such as asthma attacks, birth labors, gastrointestinal problems, and skin diseases.
The municipality plans to provide one ambulatory clinic for two barangays, which make up a cluster. The first of these ambulatory clinics is targeted in Brgy. Timugan and Brgy. Putho during the first half of 2012. Already, the LGU has grouped the 14 barangays in Los Baños into clusters.
