Additional health care facility for Tacloban City
With the strengthened partnership of the local government and the Department of Health, an additional health care facility for Tacloban City—Immediate Treatment and Monitoring Facility was finally turnover today, January 28, 2022.
Situated at Abucay, the said facility to accommodate COVID19 infected patients with mild to moderate symptoms will effectively free up hospital beds and not overwhelm the number of cases needing medical care.

Acting City Health Officer Gloria Fabrigas and some city councilors joined the said ceremony.
Tacloban City is fortunate to be one of the recipients of the ITMF among the 6 provinces and city sees this as a manifestation of the convergence and strong determination of the government to serve the people amid this pandemic.
The ITMF, funded thru Bayanihan 2, will be operational in the soonest time possible.
