AGENCY PROFILE

The Echague District Hospital, formerly Primo Gaffud District Hospital was originally located at San Fabian, Echague, Isabela and started operating in 1974 as a ten-bed capacity primary hospital. In May 2005, it was relocated at Ipil, Echague, Isabela in one of the four district hospitals constructed during the incumbency of Governor Faustino S. Dy Jr. The new hospital was inaugurated on June 29, 2004, but the actual transfer of personnel and equipment from Primo Gaffud District Hospital at San Fabian to Primo Gaffud District Hospital at Ipil took place on May 16, 2005. On September 13, 2005, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Isabela approved and adopted a resolution naming the new hospital as the Echague District Hospital. It is a core referral hospital of the southern Inter-Local Health Zone which includes the municipalities of Echague, Jones, San Agustin, San Isidro, Ramon, Cordon, Dinapigue and Santiago City with a combined population of about 424,000. The population served is not only confined to its catchment areas but also to patients coming from adjacent municipalities of Alicia, Angadanan, San Guillermo, San Mateo and as far as the provinces of Quirino and Ifugao.

The Echague District Hospital is a 25-bed general hospital which is continuously experiencing a tremendous influx of patients with a bed occupancy rate of 179.09% in 2017. This indicates the need to upsize the hospital from 25 beds to 50 beds.
