Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar S. Moreno recently led the inauguration of the newly-rehabilitated Gingoog City Provincial Hospital last May 20, 2011.
Founded in 1975, the hospital is the core referral hospital of the Gingoog Bay Alliance ILHZ, composing of 4 municipalities namely, Magsaysay, Medina, Talisayan and Balingoan. It is also the only government hospital in Gingoog City. The nearest tertiary health facility which is Agusan del Norte Provincial Hospital is 95 kms away, but most of the patients prefers to be referred at Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan de Oro City which is 125 kms away.
Hospital clients are mostly walk-in patients from the city proper, distant barangays and referrals made by catchment RHU’s, Talisayan District Hospital, and Magsaysay Municipal Hospital private clinics and from other municipalities belonging to MISORET ILHZ.
The rehabilitation will enable the facility to further improve services in general surgery, orthopedics and general obstetrics and gynecology.
