DOH commences construction of Agno Super health center

DOH – Ilocos Regional Local Health Support Division Chief Jimuel S. Cardenas and Agno Mayor Gualberto R. Sison led the groundbreaking ceremony of the Agno Super Health Center in Brgy, Bangan-Oda in the town of Agno, Pangasinan on November 8, 2023.

THE construction for the Agno Super health center is now underway as the Department of Health (DOH) – Ilocos Region together with the local government of Agno, Pangasinan completed the groundbreaking ceremony on November 8, 2023. 

The health facility will be located along the provincial highway in Barangay Bangan-Oda which is 5-kilometers away from the town proper. 

According to Regional Local Health Support Division Chief Jimuel S. Cardenas, the facility will be a one-stop-shop for all outpatient medical services. 

“Magkakaroon ito ng mga pangunahing serbisyong medical na kinakailangan ng mga pasyente. Sa pasilidad na ito ay mabibigyan na sila ng mga kinakailangan nilang serbisyo upang hindi na sila lumayo at mahirapang bumiyahe upang makapagpagamot sa ibang ospital,” Cardenas emphasized. 

“The facility will have a project cost of ₱10 million pesos funded under the HFEP – GAA 2023 but due to the commitment to healthcare, AGNO LGU has pledged to provide a financial supplement of ₱2 million pesos to complement the amount given by the national government for the facility,” he added. 

The super health center will have services from an outpatient clinic and consultation, pharmacy and dispensary, primary clinical laboratory, clinical microscopy, microbiology/parasitology, radiology, birthing ang lying-in, TB consultation with direct sputum smear processing and microscopy capability. 

Agno Mayor Gualberto R. Sison thanked the DOH for selecting Agno as one of the beneficiaries of its super health center project. “Nagpapasalamat kami sa mga biyayang pinagkakaloob ng DOH at makakaasa po kayo na patuloy po naming itataguyod ang mga programang pangkalusugan para sa kapakanan ng aming mga residente.” 

“Once this super health center is completed, we will ensure that it will provide the necessary health and medical services to improve the health of our constituents,” Sison assured
