The Secretary of the Department of Health (DOH), Sec. Paulyn Jean Rossel-Ubial leads the contract signing and groundbreaking ceremony of the highly anticipated Zamboanga project, the construction of the P324.57 million facilities at the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC).


According to Dr. Romeo Ong, ZCMC chief, the project which held a groundbreaking ceremony today, February 6, 2017, stated that the projects will include the construction of P90-million Emergency and Critical Care Unit (ECCC) and P234.57-million five-story Central Block Tower 1.

Out of the P90 million total cost, P50 million will be used for the construction of the ECCC building while the remaining P40 million will be used to purchase the facility's needed medical equipment.

The ZCMC Chief also noted that the ECCC will house the laboratory, X-ray, operating room for trauma cases, women and child protection unit, pharmacy and beds for critical care.

The ECCC will be constructed by the Benram Construction firm that won in the bidding of the P90 million project.

The Aimm Builder and Construction Supply will build the five-story Tower 1 building. Ong said the funding for the construction of the two multi-million projects came from the income of ZCMC and congressional appropriations through the initiatives of District 1 Representative Celso Lobregat.

Aside from the ZCMC improvement projects, Congressman Celso Lobregat also vowed to continue sourcing out funds for the construction of the other lined up projects at the ZCMC, which include the construction of the P109-million Central Tower Block 2 and P20-million upgrading of the Medical Gas Plant and various hospital and medical equipment.
