Bohol First District Congressman Edgar M. Chatto has warned the public to be wary of fake hiring posts for the new hospital in Cortes, Bohol, which he initiated as a project.
In a statement posted on his official Facebook page, Chatto said that his office is not responsible for the recruitment, operation and management of the Governor Celestino Gallares Multi Specialty Medical Complex Project.
He said that he learned about the fake hiring posts when someone came to his office delivering his application paper, saying that he read a post on Facebook about the job opportunity at the new hospital.
Chatto clarified that only the Gallares Hospital Human Resources (HR) is authorized to publish, screen and hire personnel for the new facility.
He urged everyone to be especially careful of those spreading fake information and to report any suspicious posts or activities to the authorities.
He also thanked the public for their continued support and trust in his leadership and service.
The Governor Celestino Gallares Multi Specialty Medical Complex Project is a P2.2-billion hospital project that aims to provide quality and affordable health care services to the people of Bohol and neighboring provinces.
The project was initiated by Chatto when he was still the governor of Bohol, with the support of then Health Secretary Enrique Ona and then President Benigno Aquino III.
The project broke ground in 2015 and is expected to be completed by 2024. It will have a 500-bed capacity and will offer various medical specialties and services.
