Plans are now afoot for the construction of Limay General Hospital in Barangay St. Francis II following the approval of the project by the Department of Health.
Limay Mayor Nelson C. David who just got an overwhelming fresh mandate from his constituents together with son Vice Mayor Richie David, said last Tuesday that the date for groundbreaking has yet to be scheduled but said it will held in a month.
“The project has been approved by DOH and the local government and maybe the DOH is just ironing out kinks to conform with basic standard and criteria,” said the mayor.
Vice Mayor David said the 2,000 square-meter land was donated by business tycoon Willy Tan of Hausland Group. “The donated land was originally 2,000 square meters but when we met at the Bunker for MOA signing nadagdagan pa nga ng 1,000 square meters,” Richie amusingly said.
He likewise disclosed that Congressman Joet Garcia (now elected provincial governor) released P50 million for hospital operation while Bataan Gov. Abet Garcia (newly-elected congressman of the province’s Second District) appropriated P100 million for the construction stage.
The vice mayor said the municipal government of Limay is now venturing into more infrastructure projects like developing tourism-oriented sites and construction of housing units.
