La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said that the construction of a four-storey rural health facility in Barangay Puguis will help boost health services in the town.
The Benguet politiko explained that the facility will be dedicated to the delivery of basic health services.
Salda explained that the facility is jointly funded by the municipal government and the Cordillera office of the Department of Health (DOH-CAR).
He also said the municipal government will continue improving other health facilities in La Trinidad.
“We need to continue investing in the continuous improvement of our health facilities and services and bring the same closer to our people to address our constituents’ health needs at our level before being referred to other medical facilities in case their health condition is complicated,” Salda said.
