In the wake of the heavy criticism created by the appointment of former PNP Chief Camilo Cascolan to the Department of Health as an undersecretary from the anti-Marcos forces because he is not a medical doctor, retired broadcaster Jay Sonza shared some facts regarding the CEOs of the country’s largest private hospitals.
Sonza wrote that in case you did not know, the CEOs of Makati Med, Asian Medical Center and Chairman of the Board of St. Lukes aren’t doctors but came from industries who have nothing to do with medicine or allied professions.
Sonza informed critics that the newly appointed undersecretary of DOH is a master in public administration with more than 35 years experience un government service, the last of which is Director General of 220,000 strong PNP and Department of Interior.
Here’s a comment from a certain Ricky Chua which I think echoed the sentiment of many netizens who support the appointment of former PNP Chief Camilo Cascolan as undersecretary of DOH.
Idiots forget that the usec was assigned to run a business & not to give medical care. Di mo kailangan ng medical degree para magpatakbo ng ospital or mamahala ng mga tao sa ospital, kc me chiefs of dept ka to do all that. You just need to know who to put in what position to get the hospital running smoothly. Maski pa sino pinakamagaling na dr ilagay mo sa ospital mo, kung ogag mga nsa baba nyn, sa kangkungan ka pa rin pupulutin. Plus factor mo na lng un maging magaling na dr at magaling ka pa mamahala. Bihira un kc me masasakripisyo ka sa ganun. Either mamatayan ka ng pasyente o maleletse un pamamahala ng ospital.
