LINGAYEN, Pangasinan—Blessing and inauguration of two new buildings at Pozorrubio Community Hospital served as the main highlight of the health facilities’ 25th anniversary celebration last August 22.

In an interview with Dr. Alfredo Sy, Chief of Hospital, he disclosed that the construction of the medical ward and the administrative building formed part of the P15 million worth of funds from the Department of Health (DOH).

Sy noted that the construction started in January this year and was turned over to the province during the hospital’s silver anniversary.

The medical ward, costing P5.6 million, has six rooms and equipped with comfort rooms that were designed to be PWD (Persons With Disability)-friendly.

On the other hand, the administrative building which is estimated to have a construction cost of  around P6.4 million, has several rooms wherein the office of the chief of hospital can be located along with the billing section, separate stations for male and female nurses, an infirmary for government employees and their family. The structure is likewise equipped with a paging system, in-house music, and fire detection alarm system.

In addition to this, a new sewage system costing around P2.8 million completed the DOH-assisted infrastructure projects.

Aside from this, the DOH also granted this year several state-of the-art equipment like two units of OR tables and OR lights, anesthesia machine, cautery machine, 15 units bed without matresses to be places at the newly-built medical ward, 25 CCTV cameras among others.

It can be recalled that all 14 government-owned hospitals were improved under the administration of then governor now 5th district Representative Amado T. Espino, Jr. (2007 to 2016) to be at par with the services rendered by private health facilities. Improvement includes construction of new buildings as well as renovation of old ones.

Under the adminsitration of Gov. Amado “Pogi” I. Espino III, all programs and projects were retained and expanded to better serve all sick and poor Pangasinenses.
