The RHU is now built, blessed and in use

The two (2) plaques, one on each side of its double-doors are in recognition of the history of the building. The first floor was funded out of the 2000 Fiesta Fund generated by Queen Karen Salcedo Saplan, First Princess Michelle Flores and Third Princess Gemma Movida during the administration of  former Mayor Art Chan. The second floor and the renovation of the whole building was completed during the administration of Mayor Emma Chan and funded through SB Resolution 31-02108 using Supplemental Budgets #1 & #2 Series 2007 and Supplemental Budget #1Series 2008.

On January 13, 2009, immediately after the Thanksgiving and Municipal Founding Mass held at the Plaza Pergola, the new Rural Health Unit Building was blessed by Rev. Fr. Teofilo Calicdan, parish priest of Pozorrubio. The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Mayor Emma Chan and Vice Mayor  Reynaldo Reyes.

And its door was finally opened to those who need help, healing or simple caring. 



After Mayor Emma Chan and Vice Mayor Rey Reyes cut the ribbon (left), the Pozorrubians, balikbayans and townspeople alike, walked into the large hallway en masse and looked into each service room catering to their health needs.

The Stimulation and Therapeutic Activity Center (STAC) renders physical theraphy and special education classes to children with disabilities. The first client to take advantage of the newest facility is a little boy on wheelchair.Next were Manny Saplan and newly married couple Michael and Marie Therese Saplan.
