Provincial Board Member Dr. Liland Bustamante-Estacion has filed a Resolution in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to rename the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital to the Gov. Emilio C. Macias II Provincial Hospital. {{more}}

Estacion said the late Governor was a strong advocate for health, who sought to modernize the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital by improving its building and facilities.

Macias, Estacion continued, also pioneered in the delivery of basic health services to the rural areas by establishing community primary hospitals, which won a Galing Pook Award and became a model for rural health services throughout the country.

Macias, who served as governor of Negros Oriental for 11 years, succumbed to liver cancer last June 13, after winning his reelection bid.

Meanwhile, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine at the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital is now fully functional. NOPH chief Dr. Felix Sy told Gov. Agustin Perdices during his courtesy call last Friday that part from the MRI machine, the NOPH also has a brand new immunoanalyzer.

These are among the latest equipment acquired by the NOPH under the administration of Gov. Macias.
