Dr. Domingo Vega will reassume his post as head of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City this morning.

In July 2007 the DOH had temporarily transferred Vega, Dr. Benito Bionat – chief of the Medical Professional Staff and Rey Melchor Bryan Baylon – chief administrative officer of the CLMMRH to Cebu while the cases filed against them were being heard.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, acting on a Nov. 26 order of Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Demosthenes Magallanes, reinstated Bionat to his post in December.moremoremore
