Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno said on Monday that he wants to make the Ospital ng Maynila look better than the private hospitals in Metro Manila.
KAMI learned that Moreno wants the Ospital ng Maynila to look better than Makati Medical Center and St. Luke’s Medical Center.
"Basta 'pag ang Ospital ng Maynila tinayo natin at hindi naging mas maganda kaysa sa Makati Medical Center at St. Luke’s, hindi papasa sa'kin," Moreno said, as reported by the ABS-CBN News.
"Sapagkat hindi biro magtayo ng ospital, dingding, sahig lang eh bakit di pa natin itodo. So build it better, build the best. Ayaw niyo ba 'yung pasyente ninyo hanggang sa huling hininga nakikita niya dapat ‘ayos, malamig,’" he added.
