TARLAC CITY, Tarlac (Oct. 1, 2023) — The Tarlac Provincial Hospital (TPH) has received over 180 medical equipment from the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to help improve its facilities and services to Tarlakenyos.
The sizeable donation consists of hospital beds, bunk beds, mattresses, pillows, and a medical x-ray machine.
Tarlac Governor Susan Yap thanked the BCDA for its corporate social responsibility.
“The Provincial Government of Tarlac is grateful for the generous support from the BCDA in delivering critically needed medical equipment to those who need it most. We hope this donation will go a long way towards saving lives at our provincial hospital. We truly appreciate BCDA’s support for our community and we are looking forward to the growth that New Clark City will bring to our region,” Yap said.
Tarlac serves as a home to BCDA’s flagship project, the 9,450-ha. New Clark City (NCC), is a greenfield development positioned to be an inclusive, resilient, sustainable, and smart city. This major metropolis is being developed to help decongest Metro Manila and serve as an investment hub to catalyze growth in Central and Northern Luzon.
NCC is projected to eventually have a population of 1.2 million and provide employment to at least 600,000 workers from surrounding municipalities.
“We at BCDA are committed to improve the quality of life of the communities that we develop through the conversion of former military bases and other properties into premier sustainable centers of economic growth. We hope that these equipment will help Tarlac strengthen its health system and be able to better respond to its constituents’ medical needs,” BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Engr. Joshua M. Bingcang said.
