JV Ejercito to visit Iloilo City today


Senator JV Ejercito is scheduled to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Regional Heart and Lung Center of the Western Visayas Medical Center (WVMC) today.

Ejercito will also lead the unveiling of the project perspective of the Heart, Lung and Kidney Center of the West Visayas State University Medical Center (WVSUMC), Panay News reported.

The chairman of the committee on health was instrumental in the approval of the P900-million budget of the two projects.

“I am happy to have helped bring about these dream projects. This is my simple way of giving back to the land of my mother, Mayor Guia Gomez, whose mother is from the district of Molo,” said Ejercito, author of the Universal Health Care Law.

The six-story WVMC Heart and Lung Center that will be built will house the thoracic-cardiovascular operating rooms, surgical intensive care units, coronary care units, non-invasive cardiology section, vascular section, pulmonary section, wards, and private rooms.
