Supervised by Engr. Henry Q. Tancio, the head of Engineering and Maintenance department, the Php5, 975,291.28 project is estimated to be completed within 60 calendar days.

SPMC is proud to introduce an important milestone in this project by being the first among all the government hospitals nationwide to install evaporative type air-handling units, a standard used in many leading health centers in neighboring countries such as Singapore and Malaysia.

The Obstetrics ward, responsible for providing health care to birthing women, has gone through a long duration of wear and tear throughout its extensive period of operation, causing inconvenience to hospital personnel and clients, especially during power outage. Hence, the upgrading of Obstetrics ward is one of the strategies of SPMC Administration, led by the Medical Center Chief Dr.
