I always take the initiative to address all COVID-19 concerns for the welfare of my beloved people,” Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas previously said in a statement.
TMC Iloilo will manage the operations of the Iloilo City Modular Hospital which includes the training of the medical personnel, integration of the hospital information system, and provision of diagnostic services.
