The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) is set to transform an area of the Freeport into a site for a Heart Center and the National Kidney Center regional hospitals.
In a memorandum issued Monday, October 10, CDC president and chief executive officer Agnes VST Devanadera, said the CDC Board, headed by its chairman Edgardo Pamintuan, approved the plan of making this Freeport a site for the two specialty hospitals.
The lower Pulang Lupa extension, with 18.68 hectares of land, and the former Savencia region, with 5.72 hectares of land, were chosen by the state-owned company as the locations for the two health facilities.
According to Devanadera, CDC and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) had initial discussions over the project’s potential financing. Also, the national government and the Department of Health’s Philippine Health Facility Development Plan support the project.
Under the Philippine Health Facility Development Plan (PHFDP), specialty medical centers for neonatal, heart, lung, kidney, and cancer patients will be prioritized.
