TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Department of Health (DOH) gave the go-signal for the construction of the city government’s very own hospital, City Administrator Arnold Tenedero proudly revealed during this week’s Monday flag raising ceremony.
“Kayat ku lang nga ibaga nga finally, the DOH ket in-issue nan jay permit to construct diay hospital tayu,” he said.
Tenedero stated that the hospital had been the city government’s flagship project and expressed his hope that all necessary legal paperwork would be processed swiftly so that the construction could begin.
“Kasapulan nga talaga ti Tabuk iti hospital,” he emphasized.
The hospital will be built in Barangay Appas and will be known as the Tabuk City Diagnostic Center and Emergency Hospital (TCDCEH), the city administrator stated.
Atty. Ivan Yannick Bagayao, chair of the Committee on Health, and the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) expressed gratitude to the DOH for approving the facility.
“It shows nga iti DOH makita da nga kasapulan tayu nga talaga ti hospital. Haan da met nga ag-issue ti permit to construct nu haan da makita viability and feasibility nga masapul tayu nga ag-construct,” he said.
Speaking on their behalf, he declared that the city’s lawmakers were satisfied with the choice and the city’s ongoing expansion.
Bagayao underlined that while accident victims are automatically transported to the Kalinga Provincial Hospital or other privately owned hospitals, the construction of the city hospital will enable the decongestion of crowded facilities.
