TAGBILARAN CITY, December 05, 2013 (PIA) –The Department of Health (DOH) earmarks P289 million for the rehabilitation and rebuilding of earthquake damaged health facilities in Bohol, according to Secretary Enrique Ona. 

Of the amount, P80 million would be spent for rehabilitation of damaged Rural Health Units, the rest for the rebuilding of Congressman Natalio Castillo Memorial Hospital (CNCMH), which the mega-tremor wrecked totally. 

Sec. Ona said the DOH, with the Provincial Government is rebuilding the CNCMH, at a new location, but not far from the site of the collapsed hospital in Barangay Basac, in Loon town. 

“As the ruined hospital would be collapsed, another hospital would be built, not exactly on the same area, but nearby, this is in partnership with the Provincial Government of Bohol and the DOH,” Ona said.

The earthquake also completely damaged 7 Rural Health Centers, 13 Barangay Health Centers and partially damaged 14 other hospitals, 36 RHUs and 108 BHCs all over Bohol. 
During a press conference at the sidelines of the presidential visit to Bohol last Thursday, secretary Ona said damage to health facilities in Bohol during the mega-quake which hit Bohol October 15 reached P164 million.

The quake also killed more than 200, injured 817, and the trauma which the tremor caused to communities sent 3,081 patients for psychosocial and mental health support, reports Dr. Ona. 

For the duration of the calamity, the DOH said they served 29, 283 patients with quake related injuries, bruises or diseases.

That same time, the DOH joined relief operations and served the water needs of some 74,458 indiviiduals.
