APALIT – The local chief executive in this town disclosed Wednesday that the Department of Health (DOH) has allocated at least P18 million for the construction of another district hospital in the municipality.

Mayor Jun Tetangco said the hospital is set to be constructed either in Barangay Sulipan or San Vicente, subject to the recommendation of the provincial engineers.

He said the lot in San Vicente is preferred as it is near MacArthur Highway, with some structures already existing like a covered court.

“Yung lupa naman sa Barangay Sulipan ay nasa puso ng Apalit,” he stated.

However, it was learned that the lot in Sulipan is usually submerged in floodwaters during the rainy season.

“Kasalukuyan na namin yang tinatambakan,” Tetangco explained.

Aside from this, Tetangco claimed that the Provincial Government also pledged full support on the proposed construction of a hospital building and facilities to ensure its full implementation.
