Negros blood center
inauguration set: guv

One of the most modern blood banks in the country is expected to be inaugurated in Barangay 39, Bacolod City, in the first week of December, Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.

The Negros Blood Center is a joint project of the Negros Occidental provincial government and the Department of Health, he said.

The provincial government provided the land and the P24.1 million building, while the DOH will provide the equipment, he said.

An additional P10.8 million will also be needed for the fencing of the blood center, its power house and water tank.

Also set for groundbreaking in Barangay 39 is the construction of the new Negros Occidental Teachers Federation building, Marañon added.

Meanwhile, the owners of 888 Chinatown Square who have leased the old Negros Occidental Provincial Jail site in Bacolod City are set to the develop the area into a commercial hub, he added.*
