Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga led the groundbreaking ceremony to officially start the construction of the P10-M worth of 1-storey Provincial Medicine Warehouse on December 12, 2022 located at the Provincial Capitol Complex, Nabunturan.
Governor Gonzaga expressed gratitude to the Department of Health (DOH) through the Davao Center for Health Development (DCHD) and the Provincial Health Office (PHO) for the support provided in the realization of the building.
PHO head Dr. Antonio P. Ybiernas said that the building will serve as a satellite office that will improve the daily operations of PHO as well as a storage facility for medical commodities.
“Duna pud ni syay gamay nga opisina para sa atoang supply officer para ila gyung mabantayan ang atoang mga commodities… para pud ang atong katawhan dili na magproblema kung unsay mga tambal o vaccines nga gikinahanglanon” Dr. Ybiernas said.
Meanwhile, DCHD Regional Director Dr. Annabelle P. Yumang was also present during the ceremony emphasizing in her message the necessity for a warehouse in times of emergencies.
She added that a series of training will be given to the supply officers who will look after the supplies including proper temperature requirements to avoid contamination from pests. She also hopes for support from the Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) for the maintenance and monitoring of the building.
Dr. Ybiernas also stressed that more projects await the constituents including the construction of Super Health Centers from DOH that are set to rise in strategic locations of the province providing specialized health services at the local scale. Such provisions may include an outpatient department, laboratory, x-ray, ultrasound, birthing services, diagnostic, blood chemistry, and dental services, among others. (Jaynus Fernandez)
