ACTS-CIS Representative and Benguet caretaker Eric Yap said he will make sure that the workers of the Benguet General Hospital (BeGH) will not lose their jobs once the health facility is turned over to the national government.
Yap is pushing for the re-nationalization of BeGH aimed at improving the delivery of health care services in the province.
Under his proposed House Bill No, 6171, Yap is also eyeing to increase the bed capacity of BeGH from 100 beds to 200 beds.
The hospital currently has 360 workers.
Yap and Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas recently met with BeGH officials and employees over the proposed measure.
