Mark Villar hopes modular hospital will ease congestion in Las Piñas facility

0 16

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar expects more COVID-19 patients to be accommodated at the modular hospital built within the Las Piñas General Hospital.

The facility, which will be opened on January 24, is complete with ventilation systems, oxygen lines, and air condition units.

“We are building a modular hospital capable of accommodating 36 COVID-19 patients. This will hopefully bring relief, decongesting the existing facilities of LPGH-STC so they can focus on treating severe cases or other non-COVID-19 patients,” Villar said.

The Cabinet Secretary recently visited the site of the modular hospital with his sister, Las Piñas Rep. Camille A. Villar.
