Isko Moreno wants posh upgrade for Ospital ng Maynila: ‘Di papasa sa akin kung daig ng Makati Med, St. Luke’s!
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno wants the Ospital ng Maynila in Malate to rival the looks of prestigious private hospitals like Makati Medical Center and St. Luke’s Medical Center.
Moreno told doctors and medical staff in the city Monday that he wants to “build the best” Ospital ng Manila possible.
“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 akin,” he said.
Moreno said it is the city government’s goal to make residents feel they are receiving medical treatment at a public hospital which looks like a private institution.
“Ang isang mahirap na tao makaramdam man lamang ng tunay na pagkalinga [mula] sa kanyang pamahalaan kahit sa huling hininga niya,” he said.
Moreno said he plans to renovate the 50-year-old Ospital ng Maynila to make it a fully air conditioned medical facility.
