Pasay City General Hospital’s occupancy rate has gone down to 82 percent from 94 percent last week, Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said Monday.
Citing a report from hospital officer-in-charge Dr. John Victor de Gracia, Rubiano said the city’s lone public hospital now has two available Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds and four regular beds for COVID-19 patients.
The hospital has also re-opened its emergency room (ER) and started accepting COVID and non-COVID patients.
Last month, PCGH temporarily suspended admissions of COVID-19 patients to its ER after reaching full capacity.
All 25 PCGH employees who have contracted the virus have also recovered, the mayor said.
Rubiano said the hospital will prioritize the admission of city residents but will also accept non-Pasay residents seeking medical attention.
“The hospital also needs to accept COVID-19 patients that are non-residents because we have to save lives,” Rubiano said.
