La Union will broaden its mainstream efforts this year for the social and economic empowerment of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. This was announced by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega recently as the Regional Development Council-1 (RDC-1) recognized the Provincial Government of La Union’s (PGLU) efforts to realize the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). PGLU was hailed as Champion for the Search for the Best MDG Project Implementer during the RDC-1 Awards and Recognition Program held last April 2 at the Oasis Country Resort, Brgy. Sevilla, City of San Fernando, La Union.

The award was given to PGLU for its initiatives, creative and innovative capacities and outstanding accomplishments in the implementation of MDG Programs and Projects. It includes eradication of extreme poverty and hunger; realization of universal primary education; promotion of gender equality and women empowerment; reduction of child mortality rates; improvement of maternal health; effective fight against HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases; assurance of environmental sustainability; and development of global partnership for development.

For government hospitals, the main objective is to be of service to the poor while becoming a competent healthcare facility. The Caba Medicare and Community Hospital (CMCH) in Caba, La Union achieves just this, especially with a program in place that is lauded by the Region’s Development Council.

Through the Revenue Enhancement Program introduced in 2005, the CMCH adopts a corporatized system of operation, which is geared towards income generation for a financially viable and sustainable healthcare facility.

The Program is also in fulfillment of the hospital’s mandate as an Economic Enterprise of the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU). The Program thus serves as a reform strategy for the provision of a responsive/improved health care delivery system.

Through the Program, various infra developments went underway at the CMCH. These include the construction of 24-Hour Cash Pharmacy, Hospital Annex Building, and the improvement of three private rooms and ward rooms.
