The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN), through the leadership of Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc, has intensified the hiring of additional medical practitioners to augment the province's health workforce.  

Ms. Fe P. Siazon, Provincial Human Resource Management Officer, disclosed that the Governor Roque B. Ablan Sr. Memorial Hospital (GRBASMH) will be opening four vacancies for Nurse II, another four for Nurse I, and several casual and job order positions for the provincial hospital.

"For our district hospitals, we are waiting for the final list of job vacancies. Maybe next week, we can publish and eventually fill the positions," Ms. Siazon added.

Meanwhile, Governor Marcos Manotoc continues to reinforce his commitment to revitalizing the province's health sector, saying: "Our hospitals are filling up long-vacant and urgent staff positions, repairing old and damaged wards, as well as increasing expenditure in medicines and laboratory testing."

The primary thrust of this year's budget is towards enhancing public health programs and facilities. Investing in the health of its people, the Provincial Government has allotted P475 Million. It will be appropriated for the improvement of medical facilities, employment of additional health practitioners and medical personnel, and procurement of medical equipment and supplies.
