Twelve hospitals run by the Iloilo provincial government could already hire additional personnel to further improve their services.

Of the total amount, P66 million was allotted for the hiring of 590 personnel, such as nurses, doctors, X-ray technicians, etc., to address the personnel gap of the 12 hospitals.
