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 construction of the new modular hospital in LPGH-STC, which commenced before the end of April 2021, is expected to be completed and opened on June 24, 2021.
