Castro threatens to terminate hospital contractor due to ‘delayed works’
Capiz Governor Fredenil Castro threatened to cancel the contract of the firm building the Roxas Memorial Provincial Hospital (RMPH) in Brgy. Lanot should it continue to postpone its works.
Castro directed the Provincial Engineer’s Office to issue a warning to the contractor to complete the project.
The construction started in 2010 but it remains unfinished after 12 years. (https://bit.ly/3d8cc0Y)
“The provincial government will find another contractor by re-bidding the project should it continue to delay the construction,” the governor said.
The project was initiated by former governor Victor Tanco Sr., who was succeeded by then-governor Antonio del Rosario.
It continued even under former governor Esteban Evan Nonoy Contreras.
The unfinished hospital building will cater to outpatients to declog the congested RMPH on Arnaldo Boulevard.
