Benguet caretaker and ACT-CIS Representative Eric Yap said he is confident that the bill seeking to re-nationalize the Benguet General Hospital (BeGH) will be passed in the Senate.
He explained that returning BeGH to the national government will increase the hospital’s bed capacity.
Yap said that his ally, Senator Bong Go, will surely support the measure.
He also said that the re-nationalization of BeGH will allow for the standardization of the salaries of the hospital’s helath personnel.
Yap added that the budget being allocated by the provincial government for BeGH can be used for other programs.
