Health sec leads inauguration of P180 M new Abra hospital
by Dexter See

BANGUED, Abra – Health Sec. Enrique Ona will lead the inauguration of the P180 million Abra Provincial Hospital located at Barangay Calaba on May.

Gov. Eustaquio Bersamin said finishing touches and the cleaning of the hospital’s premises are now underway to ensure the facilities will be in full operation after the inauguration of the facility.

“The provincial government heavily invested in the putting up of our new provincial hospital in order to enhance the delivery of basic health services to our people, especially those coming from far-flung communities and indigent patients,” Bersamin said.

He said the initial services to be provided by the new hospital will be out-patient services, dental services, among other health services, in order to help decongest the old provincial hospital.

Bersamin said the Department of Health infused around P50M for the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment that will be used in the operation of the 200-bed capacity hospital in order to help in improving the delivery of health care services to the countryside.

Among the units of equipment that are present in the hospital are the dialysis machine, portable X-ray machine, complete operating room equipment, and intensive care unit facilities capable of attending to the emergency needs of patients.

Bersamin said the local government is now awaiting the delivery of the units of equipment, particularly the CT scan, di-gital X-ray machines, and C-arm X-ray, from the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

The governor said the operation of the old provincial hospital will continue but the same will slowly be transferred to the new facility.

“We will work out funding appropriations for the purchase of additional medicines and medical supplies considering the hospital frequently encounters inadequate medicines and supplies,” Bersamin said, saying it is very difficult to transfer the patients of the old hospital to the new one due to their reported serious illnesses.

He appealed to local leaders and the private sector in the province to help in sustaining the operations of the new hospital by facilitating the sourcing out of medicines and medical supplies.

Bersamin assured the provincial government will continue to establish linkages with local and international funding institutions to continuously improve the operation of the newest health facility and bring in added state-of-the-art units of medical equipment to be used in the hospital.
