Caraga representatives to the Lower House is in full support of the proposed modernization of Caraga Regional Hospital located in Surigao City, Surigao del Norte.

According to the Department of Health-Center for Health Development Caraga regional director Ariel I Valencia, all the nine lawmakers of the region already signed the letter of endorsement.

It is envisioned to become a teaching and training hospital at par with notable hospitals in the country which will serve the region and the neighboring areas especially the poorest of the poor.

A three-year development plan for this purpose will cost P500 million. Potential fund source are the revenues from the sin taxes.

It was after World War II that the Philippine Congress appropriated for the construction of a 25 bed provincial hospital in the province of Surigao del Norte. With the increasing number of admissions and the new trends in hospital management and treatment, in February 11, 1997, by virtue of R.A. 8255, the Surigao Provincial Hospital was converted into Caraga Regional Hospital with an authorized bed capacity of 150.

Today, Caraga Regional Hospital is the core referral hospital in the region even serving the neighboring provinces of Leyte.

However, with the increasing demand for quality care as mandated by the Aquino Health Agenda through Kalusugan Pangkalahatan, it is imminent that Caraga Regional Hospital must expand its services, fully equip its facilities, and build the capacities of the health worker to better serve the community.

In addition, Director Valencia will present this proposal to the Regional Development Council-Social Development Committee for further endorsement. (DOH-CHD 13/PIA-Caraga)
