JARO, Leyte – The Leyte Second District Engineering Office (L2DEO) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is constructing a multi-purpose building intended to be used as an infirmary health facility in Barangay Caglawaan, this town.

The said facility has a total floor area of 810 square meters and with a total budget allocation of P19.73 million featuring concrete footings, columns, and beams as well of hollow block walls, steel frame roofing, storm drainage, and sewer.

“This new building will serve as an additional health care facility for the municipality of Jaro, as they are considered one of the most populated towns in the second district of Leyte and belong to a 3rd class municipality in the province of Leyte,” Engr.Leo Edward Oppura, the district engineer, said.

Once completed and utilized, the said facility can offer services to help address health concerns, and the community can avail itself of medical treatment and diagnosis from the trained healthcare professionals.

Similarly, it will provide more job possibilities in the health sector and provide a more inexpensive and accessible healthcare system.

The project started its construction on February 20, 2023, and is expected to be completed before September 17 of this year.
