LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu – The Municipal Government of Cordova plans to enter into an agreement with ARC Hospital in Lapu-Lapu City, to admit patients from the town.

This was confirmed by Vice-Mayor Victor “Boyet” Tago.

Tago said that the town will sign a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the private hospital.

He said that the hospital would allocate two 16-bed capacity ward rooms for the town’s patients who would be admitted to the hospital.

Currently, Tago said that they will wait for the copy of the MOA to be submitted to the Cordova municipal council so that they can pass a resolution for the said purpose.

“Ato nanang plantsahon pero nagsugod na si mayor sa pag-submit ug dokumento, unya ato nanang i-submit sa Sangguniang for a PPP project kay ang hospital pwede siya maka-PPP ta. Mintras wala pata’y hospital, ang atong ARC pwede natong magamit,” Tago said.

Tago explained that they were doing this after they heard some complaints that most of the patients admitted at the Lapu-Lapu City Hospital were residents of Cordova.

“Kay daghang reklamo didto sa Carajay (Lapu-Lapu City Hospital), kay naglabi kuno sa taga Cordova. So mao na nga nakig-meet na sa ARC para ma-plantsa nato unsa atong pagabuhaton,” he added.

The Lapu-Lapu City Hospital is a public hospital operated and run by the Lapu-Lapu City Government.     /rcg
