TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Gabriela Mija Kim Medical Center (GMKMC) established in Barangay Agbannawag through the Medical Peace Foundation of South Korea, will soon operate round-the-clock to serve patients in the eastern part of this city.

The facility, which was turned over to the provincial government on Jan. 16, 2007, currently serves as a satellite health center of the Kalinga Provincial Hospital and operates only during the day. It has one doctor.

Plans are underway to make the 10-bed capacity hospital operate 24 hours with two doctors and support health personnel. It will also be provided basic hospital facilities and an ambulance.

Gov. Jocel Baac said the provincial government will provide operational funds, maintenance fund, salaries of employees, and other services.

He said they are completing the structural requirements for it to obtain a license from the Department of Health to operate and its eventual admission of patients.

Baac said the provincial government plans to expand GMKMC by constructing additional wing to accommodate more patients and in the long run decongest the provincial hospital.

Provincial Health Officer Romulo Gaerlan  said they will tackle the final plan of the independence of the medical center during their  health board meeting this month.

Baac said during his recent meeting with visiting South Korean benefactors, they said they are contemplating to donate another $10,000 for the facility’s improvement.

During the facility’s turnover, Sung Cho, chair of the Medical Peace Foundation of South Korea, hoped this would strengthen the bond of brotherhood between Filipinos and Koreans for the promotion of world peace.

He said donating a medical center is South Korea’s way of reciprocating the supreme sacrifice and services of Filipino soldiers during the Korean War in the 1950’s.
