A panel headed by Mayor Evelio Leonardia and Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran will lead the Bacolod City contingent in a meeting 2 p.m. Tuesday via Webex on the details of the proposed medical center in Barangay Vista Alegre in Bacolod City with representatives of the regional office of the Department of Health-6.
Dr. Adriano Suba-an, DOH- 6 regional director, with whom he had an earlier talk about the four-hectare Teofilo M. Gensoli Memorial Medical Center, is sending personnel from the agency’s Center for Health Development to meet with local government officials, Leonardia said in a prèss release Monday.
The mayor told Suba-an that the TMGMMC, whose donation was facilitated by Gloria Gensoli, will house the new City Health Office that will be built using city government resources, and the planned Bacolod hospital.
The bigger CHO inside the medical complex will also have a dialysis center, clinics, birthing facility and state-of-the-art medical equipment to serve better the health needs of Bacolodnons, the mayor said.*
