Near the tip of northwestern Luzon lies Laoag City situated at the foothills of the Cordillera mountain range in the east and along the West Philippine Sea in the west. Popularly known as the Malacanang of the North during the Marcos regime, Laoag is the city capital of Ilocos Norte province.
An auspicious beginning of the CareHealth Plus-Laoag in 2018 steadfastly put the branch on track with the company’s steps to make its mark in the Ilocos region. Slowly but surely the branch treads its way to becoming another full-blown competitor in the local healthcare arena.
CareHealth Plus-Laoag is managed by the youthful soft-spoken Ilocana Branch Manager Jolly Ann S. Batangan who holds office at Unit 3-D, 3rd Floor, LC Square Building, J.P. Rizal corner Balintawak & Fariñas Streets, Barangay 9, Laoag City with Email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Adequate guidance for both BM Jolly and the branch sales organization of Sales Agency Managers, Sales Group Managers and Sales Counselors is generously given by North Luzon Senior Division Head & Vice President Normita P. Sahagun. Orchestrating operations is Marketing Group Head Ronald D. Acolola, Jr., Senior Vice President & Chief Operations Officer.
CareHealth Plus-Laoag now identifies itself with Ilocandia’s unbridled progress and development.
Eco-tourism has likewise become part of Ilocandia’s progressive strides in its economic development. Laoag City serves as take-off point for travel to places of interest for the visitor – the Malacanang of the North, the sand dunes, the windmills of Bangui, leaning tower/belfry in Laoag and Bacarra and others.
Various Ilocandia festivals showcase the region’s nostalgic heritage. Some are the bawang (garlic) festival, the empanada (local snack delicacy) festival and the ani (harvest) festival. The festivals have become an integral part of the long-held rich culture, traditions and historic heritage of Ilocandia.
