COVID-19 Crisis: Construction of 36-bed modular hospital in Las Piñas City progressing

According to a Manila Bulletin news report, the construction of a modular hospital designed to provide additional bed space as part of the Las Piñas General Hospital and Satellite Trauma Center (LPGH-STC) in Barangay Pulanglupa 1 in Las Piñas City is progressing and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is involved. The said project was inspected recently by DPWH Secretary Mark Villar and his sister Las Piñas City Representative Camille Villar.

What exactly will the new project do in relation to the COVID-19 crisis and the City of Las Piñas? To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the news report. Some parts in boldface…

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark A. Villar recently inspected the ongoing construction of a modular hospital being undertaken by the DPWH to aid in the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) program of Las Piñas City.

Villar, together with his sister and Las Piñas Rep. Camille A. Villar, checked the project which is being implemented inside the Las Piñas General Hospital and Satellite Trauma Center (LPGH-STC) at the Bernabe Compound, Diego Cera Ave, Pulanglupa I.

“Our team from the DPWH Las Piñas-Muntinlupa District Engineering Office has so far accomplished 90 percent of the facility complete with ventilation systems, oxygen lines, and air condition units,” said Secretary Villar.

“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,” said Secretary Villar.

The report ended by stating that the new modular hospital is expected to not only be completed but also open today – June 24, 2021. Its construction began in April 2021.
