Malay SB member and Chairman of the Committee on Laws Rowen Aguirre say ‘surrender’ to the construction and expansion project of Boracay Hospital.
Aguiree admitted in an interview that he foresees the slow chance of project’s completion before the upcoming Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Boracay this May 2015.
Aguirre also said that he was asked by the APEC National Organizing Committee about the hospital but he had rather suggested a contingency plan.
He also thought at first that the Provincial Health Office (PHO) Aklan is managing the project but it eventually came out that it was the Department of Health Region 6.
They don’t even know the problem of DOH Region 6 with the project contractor.
It can be recalled that Aguirre made the request to the Sangguniang Bayan of Malay to pass a resolution for the fast tract of the hospital’s expansion and construction project in preparation for the APEC summit.
