The city government of Iloilo is eyeing the construction of a P159-million Iloilo City Hospital in Barangay Hinactacan in La Paz district.

Mayor Jerry Treñas led the inspection of the proposed site last Thursday.

“We are looking at utilizing the one to one and a half hectares of lot,” said Treñas.

The city mayor said the Department of Health (DOH) in Western Visayas already committed to help in the construction of the city hospital. (https://bit.ly/2uTtDg8)

“They already committed to help us and for our part, we will soon look for personnel who will man the hospital,” he added.

Treñas said the construction of the Iloilo City Hospital will be completed within his term.

“We already had a briefing with the DOH-6 for the establishment of the City Hospital. They will start with the building construction as soon as we secure the lot requirement. We will then consider the needed equipment and even expansion later on,” according to him.

He underscored the need for the city to have its own hospital to cater to the health needs of the residents.
