25-bed Tanudan District Hospital starts Phase 2 construction

Updated: Mar 11, 2021

Tanudan , Kalinga –The 25-bed capacity District Hospital of Tanudan is now on its second phase of construction with the allocation of P5 million budget from the Provincial Government of Kalinga.

John Ryan Awingan, Executive Assistant of Mayor Jaedicke Dagadag, in an interview said that this milestone is a manifestation of the local government’s unrelenting aspiration to provide better medical services in the municipality including the neighboring communities.

As recalled, the old non-concrete municipal hospital building could only accommodate few patients, thus this new 2-storey building would be the first sizeable hospital built in the locality, situated at Banagao, Barangay Poblacion. This will service the 12 barangays in Upper Tanudan. The four other barangays are nearer the city of Tabuk.

According to Awingan, Phase 1 of the construction worth P5 million came from the Department of Health–Cordillera Regional Office through the Office of the Provincial Governor Ferdinand Tubban.

The on-going second Phase is utilized for the construction of the hospital’s concrete slab, flooring, and purchase of building materials.

Phase 3 of the construction will be funded by the province and is up for project bidding this March.

Awingan also disclosed that they look forward for the approval of a P40 million loan by the provincial government for the completion of said hospital.

“Dayta P40 million proposal ket diyay loan da for the continuation na dayta a hospital a nu ma-approve ket ag-extend da aginggana malpasen am- amin dayta hospital building. Dayta gamin hanggang phase 3 a budget na ket hanggang mabubungan lang,” he said.

Mayor Jaedicke Dagadag expressed his gratitude to DOH-CAR and the provincial government through Governor Ferdinand Tubban for their support in funding said landmark edifice.

“Ipapati da a talaga malpas dayta district hospital, eternal and lasting dayta nga improvement ti maysa nga ili ta dakkel a tulong ti tattao dayta a hospital tapno haan da marigatan ken haan a mabaybay- an ti saksakiten da kasi asidegen a mapanan for check-up for confinement nu kasparigan medyo severe dagiti saksakiten da. Haan da koma ma-um-uma a suportaran da siyak ken ti ili a Tanudan,” Dagadag expressed.
