₱10-B multispecialty hospital in Clark Freeport Zone eyed for completion before 2028

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 17) — The multispecialty medical center that will be built in Clark Freeport Zone is expected to be finished before President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. steps down in 2028, an official said.

According to Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) chairman Alejandro Tengco, the first building may be completed in two years.

“Every year, the various buildings will have multi-year funding. If we are lucky, maybe before 2028 we will finish all the buildings,” he said on the sidelines of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Clark Multi-specialty Medical Center in Pampanga.

[Translation: Every year buildings will secure multi-year funding. If we get lucky, we can complete all the buildings before 2028.]

Pagcor, in partnership with the Clark Development Corporation, Department of Health, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority, and Bloomberry Cultural Foundation, lead the construction of the medical facility.

The facility, which will be constructed on a 5.7-hectare property in Clark Freeport Zone, will specialize in four medical disciplines: pediatric, renal, cardiovascular, and oncology.

“I am happy that the province of Pampanga, Region 3, will again have this additional medical facility. It will also cater to patients not only from Region 3, but Regions 1, 2 and Metro Manila for the specialties in the heart, kidney, cancer and pediatric ailments,” the President said during his speech at the ceremony.

Marcos also reiterated his administration’s target of improving Filipinos access to healthcare services.

“We will establish rural healthcare units. We will establish barangay centers. We will establish botika de barangay. We will go back to that idea. All of these things we are putting together so that at least when it comes to the fundamental healthcare for our countrymen that we can say is readily available to them,” he said.
