Acting Catanduanes Gov. Abundo wants to improve Eastern Bicol Medical Center
Acting Catanduanes Governor Shirley Abundo said that she will zero in on the developments of local health sector during her stint as the temporary chief executive of the provincial government.
Abundo, the reelected Vice Governor of the province, said that she wants to focus on projects deemed to “benefit more people.”
Abundo said that she gas met with Dr. Hazel Palmes, provincial health officer, Dr. Vietrez D. Abella, chief of hospital, to look into solutions to improve the Eastern Bicol Medical Center (EBMC).
“Hindi po bababa sa 20-30 people ang humihingi ng tulong sa pagpa-ospital, pambayad sa ospital, pagpa-CTscan, pagpa-chemotherapy.”
“Kung meron tayong pwedeng baguhin o kailangang baguhin sa mga polisiya, kailangan mag-usap-usap po tayo to end everything that is happening at EBMC,” Abundo said as she urged the health committee and Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) members.
The acting governor also emphasized the need of fund resources as well as the demand for fast transactions for the medical center. She said that resolving these issues would grant her the contentment she hope for as Acting Governor.
“We are having really sleepless nights on what to do with EBMC. A lot of things had to be done with EBMC. Ma-resolve ko lang po ang EBMC, kontentado na po ako sa pagiging Acting Governor ko. Sila po ang talagang gusto kong tulungan kaya sana, tulungan niyo rin po ako,” Abundo addressed Dr. Palmes and Dr. Abella.
