Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado, Jr. couldn’t contain his happiness after the Senate finally approved the counterpart measure of his pet bill.

Bordado said that the Senate has approved a measure that seeks to increase the bed capacity and develop the Bicol Medical Center on third and final reading.

This means that the bill will now be forwarded to the Palace for the approval of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“SENATE FINALLY APPROVES BICOL MEDICAL CENTER(BMC) BILL!!!: Thank GOD! Thank you, INA,” said the CamSur solon.

“Yesterday afternoon, while I was delivering my privilege speech on the ASF and COVID-19 at the House plenary, the SENATE approved, on third and final reading, its counterpart of my bill (filed by Sen. Kiko Pangilinan before the Senate Health Committee led by Sen. Bong Go) increasing the bed capacity of the Bicol Medical Center (BMC) from 500 beds to 1000 beds,” he added.

The said bill also aims to upgrade the service facilities of BMC and professional health care services, as well as authorizing the increase in its work force complement.

“BMC OIC- Medical Director Dr. Francisco “Kiko” Sales and Dr. Joseph Bichara were there at the Senate when the bill was approved. It will now be transmitted to the office of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte for him to sign it into a LAW,” said Bordado.

“Let’s all pray that everything will be OK,” he added.
