DOH-ARMM to start rehab work on PRO-ARMM hospital

COTABATO CITY, Jan. 26 (PIA) - Three years after the official request was made in 2009, rehabilitation of the hospital inside the Police Regional Office in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PRO-ARMM) will finally start in February, Dr. Kadil Sinolinding, Jr., regional secretary of the Department of Health-ARMM, announced yesterday.

Sinolinding said, DOH-ARMM and PRO-ARMM have signed a memorandum of agreement for the rehabilitation, upgrading and expansion of the hospital inside the police camp at Parang, Maguindanao. This is being funded under the Health Facilities Enhancement Program of the Department of Health.

With the initial funding of P10 million, rehabilation work will include face-lifting, upgrading of equipment as well as construction of additional structures to convert the health facility into a 29-bed and second level hospital when completed, Sinolinding said.

Through partnership, Sinolinding said, rehabilitation and upgrading of government hospitals and health facilities in different areas is part of the agency‘s efforts aimed at improving access to basic healthcare and medical services throughout the country.

“As part of our efforts to access improved health care and medical services sa ating mga kababayan sa rehiyon, nakikipagtulungan tayo sa PNP para sa rehabilitasyon, ma-upgrade iyung equipment at paslidad ng ospital at kung kinakailangan ay madagdagan ng ibang structure upang magiging 29-bed at second level ito na nasa loob ng PRO-ARMM sa bayan ng Parang,” Sinolinding said.

Sinolinding said, the MOA stipulates that the hospital will not only be open to the members of the PNP and their immediate family and dependents but would also cater and give priority to the medical and health care needs of civilians especially the indigents. (pbchangco/PIA Cotabato City)
