Finally, through the initiative of Congressman Manny Pacquiao and with the support of his new ally, Governor Migs Dominguez, Sarangani Province will finally be having its own tertiary hospital
On August 1, 2011, Monday, the Sarangani Medical Center will break ground at its corner inside the Sarangani Provincial Capitol compound, Alabel, Sarangani Province.
Below is the picture of the Sarangani Medical Center perspective.
The hospital project will have 200 beds and is aiming to be a tertiary level hospital, the first in the Sarangani Province. Currently, the Sarangani Provincial Government spends hundreds of thousands yearly to pay for the hospitalization and care of its constituents at the General Santos City Hospital and some other private hospitals.
This Sarangani Medical Center will be administered and run through a Public-Private Partnership Agreement and is undertaken under the DBP Credit for Better Health Care Program.
The hospital facility for the Sarangans which has been the subject of speculation in Pacman land for quite sometime, has just become the first in a series of projects of the new Pacquiao-Dominguez tandem. Hopefully, it will improve more the lives of their constituents, a promise which they have collectively made when they decided to forget political differences and work together as one.
