Patients at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City will start moving on Thursday into the 5th floor of its 6-storey West Tower that also houses state-of-the art medical equipment, CLMMRH chief, Dr. Julius Drilon, said yesterday.
Drilon said that with the multi-billion modernization, the CLMMRH will have facilities and equipment better than those of some private hospitals in Bacolod, and this will drive down the cost of medical services in the city.
Members of the Nationalist People's Coalition-Grupo Progreso led by Bacolod Rep. and mayoralty candidate Evelio Leonardia signed a covenant yesterday at the Business Inn, Bacolod City, to show their commitment and sincerity to the people of Bacolod City.
Leonardia said they are the only group with a covenant, or a formal written document of their platform of government showing their commitment to “save Bacolod and restore the development momentum it had gathered in the nine years of the Grupo Progreso administration.”
This is a team effort and each member was asked to contribute their ideas before the covenant was finalized, he said It was signed by all their members in the spirit of accountability, Leonardia added..
