DBM releases P550M for Nat'l Kidney and Transplant Institute 

In support of the enhancement of the country’s healthcare facilities, Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Mina F. Pangandaman has approved the issuance of Special Allotment Release Orders (SAROs) in the total amount of P550 million to cover the funding requirements for the Out-Patient Department (OPD) Building of the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI).

Ang palagi pong sinasabi ng ating mahal na Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr., no Filipino should be deprived of quality health care. That’s why we continuously give high regard to our health care facilities, more importantly, our specialty hospitals like NKTI,”  Sec. Mina said.

The funds will be used for the construction and expansion of NKTI’s OPD Building, which is designed to be a one-stop shop for the hospital’s social services, including diagnostic and surgical facilities.
Specializing in the treatment and prevention of kidney and allied diseases, the NKTI amplifies its capabilities through the construction of the proposed 8-storey OPD Building.

The facility will provide areas for the expansion of outpatient services of the hospital with a total cost of P1.331 billion. (DBM/PIA-Caraga)
