Prov’l hospital annex construction questioned

Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member Renato Ma. R. Peralta questioned the still unfinished construction of the Governor Roque B. Ablan Sr. Memorial Hospital here in Laoag City after he discovered that the project was supposed to have been completed four months ago.

Peralta brought up this issue during a regular session of the SP as he stated that the appropriation ordinance for the project—amounting to P16 million—had long been approved and the said construction should have been completed by last year.

Peralta has urged his colleagues to probe the issue.

Earlier, Dr. Rogelio Balbag, provincial health officer, had been pushing for the expansion of the provincial hospital to accommodate more patients from Laoag and first district towns of the province.

With this development, SP member Ameurfina A. Respicio suggested that the SP call the attention of Charito Julian, provincial engineer, to explain the delay of the completion of the project. She also said that the provincial engineering office provide the specific details of the project to the SP.
