BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The Chief of Hospital of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, yesterday said that whether or not the hospital is given pork barrel, it will continue to provide services to its patients.
Dr. Julius Drilon also said that about P15 million in pork barrel funds from senators and congressmen are coursed throughthe regional hospital to help subsidize the medical needs of poor and indigent patients, as well as its operating expenditures.
The pork barrel fund released by the 14th Congress is still being
used by the hospital to provide services to many poor people. The Supreme Court only subjected to a temporary restraining order the Priority Development Assistance Fund for the 15th Congress, he pointed out.
