The establishment of specialty hospitals within the Clark Freeport Zone will greatly help in the health programs not only for Kapampangans for residents of Central and Northern Luzon, said Vice Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda.
VG Pineda said she appealed for a 2-hectare area within the Clark freeport where the provincial government would be able to establish a specialty hospital.
Unlike Mabalacat City, the provincial government has no direct shares in the Gross Income Earned (GIE) derived from the operations of businesses in the Clark freeport.
“Pampanga has no shares in the GIE,” said VG Pineda which prompted her to appeal for a 2-hectare area for the extension of the Pampanga Provincial Hospital.
Residents of the Magalang town, and the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat will benefit from the Clark hospital, said VG Pineda. “Reng residenti naning Magalang, Mabalacat at Angeles City, ala nakayung masyadung babayaran, ditak mu.”
“So gagawan dane pu iyan pare kekayu ya murin. Kasi pu dakal la reng masakit,” VG Pineda told the elected barangay leaders of Angeles City during the mass oathtaking ceremony last Monday at the Royce Hotel and Casino.
“Nung atatandanan yupu anyang mig grounbreaking keni king Ospital ning Angeles. Bayu yapa mupu tagal I BBM, President Marcos sinabi ku kaya ing kailangan sabi ku Mr. President ing kailangan specialty hospitals kasi deng mag bypass, reng keng kidney, deng keng lungs, kareng anak – kailangan yapu king Pampanga. Aliwa mu pu ing Pampanga ing makinabang buung Central Luzon and Northern Luzon,” said VG Pineda.
President Marcos has supported the idea of VG Pineda. Marcos who recently attended the groundbreaking rites for the specialty hospitals in Clark said VG Pineda was happy because the specialty hospital will soon rise.
“So ngeni gawan dane pu itang buiding worth one billion (pesos) baka ita narin pu ing Heart Center. Kaybat pu ing Congress kayabe ya pu I Cong Jonjon, ing Department of Health, gawan da niya naman ing one billion (pesos) for the Kidney Center. So dakal la pung hospitals den,” said VG Pineda.
“Kumpletu tana pu keni Pampanga,” said VG Pineda.
“Atin tamung legacy. Kasi second time na ing Marcos family keng gewa da pung Heart Center, Lung Center, Kidney Center, Philippine Children’s Hospital, PGH, mika pangadwang project keni Pampanga,” said VG Pineda.
VG Pineda said she will not retire unless all these specialty hospitals will be realized.
“Nung alakayu pu ena managumpe ing kekaming pamanungkulan. Ikayu pu ing kasaup mi. Sana ikayu pung bayu at detang dati, tuloy tuloy po sana ing kekatamung pamag alaga kareng kekatamung ka barangay para pu tuluy tuloy ing kaunlaran naning Angeles City at province of Pampanga,” said VG Pineda.
