MANILA, Philippines - Employment opportunities are becoming brighter for Filipino medical workers in Qatar.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said yesterday proposal to construct a Filipino hospital in Qatar would open jobs for Filipino doctors and other health workers.

“It’s a joint venture between Filipinos and Qatari nationals that could be the first of its kind in the country,” Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said.  

“We, at the department, express high hopes for this proposal. This will mean additional opportunities for our Filipino medical professionals,” she said.

She said she received a memo from the Department of Foreign Affairs stating plans of a Philippine-based medical group and Qatari business community to put up a new hospital.

Baldoz said, “the premise for the construction is a combination of Qatari capital and Filipino medical expertise.”

Qatari investors would provide the land and the building, while the Filipino group would manage and provide staff for the hospital, she said.
