Benguet caretaker Cong. Yap passes bill to improve BeGH and much better pay for hospital staff

Cordillera - Appointed Benguet Caretaker Anti-Crime and Terrorism Community Involvement and Support (ACT-CIS) Party List Congressman Eric Go Yap passed House Bill No. 6171 on Wednesday. 

The bill aims to restore the management of the Benguet General Hospital (BeGH) to the national government and increases the current bed capacity of the hospital from 200 to 400. 

Cong. Yap said returning the management of BeGH to the national government would ensure bigger and continues funds for the hospital and not just rely on the funds of the provincial government and the hospital's own fund. 

Yap added that re-nationalizing of the hospital will increase the salary of the staff like nurses. He said that nurses should be receiving salary grade SG 15 (Php32,000) and not SG 9 (Php17,975)

"Upang makatiyak tayo na malaki at tuloy-tuloy and pondong mailalaan para sa hospital at hindi lang basta aasa sa pondo ng Provincial Government at sariling kita ng ospital," Cong. Yap said in a statement.

He added that turning the hospital to the government will benefit those who need medical help due to the level of health service provided by the government. 

"Dahil dito, lubos na makikinabang ang mga nangangailangan ng tulong medical dahil maitataas ang antas ng health service delivery ng hospital," he said. 

House Bill No. 6171 is the first bill Cong. Yap had passed since assuming post as an appointed caretaker of Benguet. 

On January 29, Cong. Yap was welcomed by Benguet officials and employees during his visit to the province.

In a speech, he assured that he will do whatever he can for the development of the province and its constituents. 

He also said that he will continue the work of the late Congressman Nestor B. Fongwan Sr.
