City gov’t okays
nurses for CLMMRH


Bacolod City Administrator Rolando Villamor yesterday said Mayor Monico Puentevella has already acted on the request of the chief of hospital of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital for the reinstatement of 50 city-paid nurses.

Dr. Julius Drilon earlier said he has requested Puentevella to reinstate the 50 city-paid nurses whose services were terminated at the end of the term of the Leonardia administration.

He said that during the term of former Mayor Evelio Leonardia, the city had provided them 50 city-paid nurses and about P10 million a year for the needs of patients from Bacolod. About 62 percent of their patients have addresses in Bacolod City, he said.

Villamor said the request of Drilon was already signed by the Mayor and they will send him about the same number of nurses.

The nurses, who will be deputized to the CLMMRH, already underwent briefing, he said.

Villamor recalled that during his first term as councilor of Bacolod City, they had provided about 127 nurses and other personnel to the CLMMRH. Now, Drilon is only requesting for 50 nurses, he said.*CGS
