A hospital in Baguio City that has been closed for over a decade reopened as a treatment facility exclusive for patients afflicted by the deadly COVID-19.
City officials led by Mayor Benjamin Magalong visited the Sto. Niño Jesus Medical Center in Lower P. Burgos Street for a simple opening ceremony on Friday.
Operations, however, will not start until May 11 as preparations, such as acquisition of medical equipment and manpower, are underway, said Dr. Paul Quitiquit, medical director of Saint Louis Hospital Medical Center.
The city government is working with Saint Louis Hospital of Sacred Heart, Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center, Pines City Medical Center and Notre Dame De Chartes Hospital to manage the facility.
The hospital can accommodate over 50 patients with COVID-19 symptoms, while at least 30 staff members, including nurses and transport aid, will be on duty.
