LINGAYEN– The provincial government of Pangasinan will soon sign an agreement with the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office (PVAO) to cater to the medical needs of Pangasinense veterans and their beneficiaries.
On Monday, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan here approved a resolution authorizing Governor Amado Espino III to enter into and sign a memorandum of agreement with PVAO for the implementation of hospitalization, medical care, and treatment programs to veterans and their dependents concerning 10 Pangasinan government-run hospitals.
Board Member Agerico Jeremy Rosario, sponsor of the resolution, said the PVAO has chosen Pangasinan through provincial government-operated hospitals to be among its accredited hospitals that will extend healthcare benefits to all veterans.
“The program is one way of reaching out to the needs of Filipino veterans who have played an important role in defending the nation’s freedom and democracy,” Rosario added.

The hospitals which will be accredited by PVAO are as follows: Pangasinan Provincial Hospital, Western Pangasinan District Hospital, Bayambang District Hospital, Lingayen, District Hospital, Mangatarem District Hospital, Eastern Pangasinan District Hospital, Urdaneta City District Hospital, Bolinao Community Hospital, Asingan Community Hospital and Mapandan Community Hospital.
“The basic requirement for this agreement is for the hospitals to have veterans’ ward to accommodate veterans and their beneficiaries,” Rosario said.
Espino will sign the agreement with PVAO administrator Ret. Lt. General Ernesto Carolina. (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
