By Rose de la Cruz


SM Foundation turned over yesterday the newly- renovated and refurbished Novaliches District Hospital to local officials led by Mayor Joy Belmonte, who said she is now making the newly-renovated NDH as the benchmark for all CSR (corporate social responsibility) projects to be proposed by companies operating in the city.
