The Cebu Provincial Capitol turned-over six ambulances to four Provincial Hospitals including Danao, Balamban, Carcar, Bogo and two district hospitals in Badian and Oslob on September 12, 2013. Governor Hilario Davide III and Vice Governor Agnes Magpale, together with the Provincial Board Members, headed the distribution of the ambulances.
Provincial General Services Office (PGSO) Officer Eva Encabo, said in an interview that the distribution of the ambulances worth P7.2 million, was realized through the efforts of PB Member Peter Calderon. Calderon authored a resolution authorizing then Acting Governor and now Vice Governor Agnes Magpale to sign the contract with the Nissan Cebu Distributors Inc.
Dr. Cynthia Genosolango disclosed that they don’t have guidelines in giving the ambulances but they are giving it to hospitals in the Province that need it most. “The Provincial Government bought these (ambulances) but if there are establishments, in the private sectors, NGOs, or other agencies who will donate, then we will accept it” said Dr. Genosolango.
