Synonymous to Tacloban City is Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) which devastated most of Tacloban and its surrounding areas in the Western Visayan province of Leyte.  Heavy rains, forceful windfalls and sudden storm surges inundated the city, wreaked havoc and decimated scores of the population rendering the communities helpless amid the state of calamity which followed.  Yolanda brought Tacloban and nearby localities down to their knees.

Yolanda struck in 2013 leaving in her wake a totally desolate city.  With astonishing resilience, however, Tacloban drew strength from its humbled core and rose from its devastation to what is presently its progressive claims to full recovery and normalcy.  The city’s rapid economic bounce from ‘ground zero’ has characterized Tacloban as the “Rising Phoenix of the East.”

It would be in early 2016 that CareHealth Plus-Tacloban would ride on the city’s economic surge.

Trivia (from Wikipedia):

  • The name “Tacloban” originates from the local dialect’s taklub – a fishing net contraption made of bamboo slats used to catch crabs, shrimps, fish and other marine resources in designated fishing areas commonly referred to as tarakluban.


  • The city’s famed landmark, the 2.16-kilometers San Juanico Strait Bridge linking the provinces of Leyte and Samar, miraculously escaped Yolanda’s wrath as the bridge never did incur any significant damage.


  • In contrast, the Santo Nino Parish Church and Santo Nino Shrine (now a museum of Marcos fortune and properties) were severely damaged necessitating major repairs until the present day.
