Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte on Thursday, Oct. 28, announced that the city government-owned Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital (RMBGH) now offers enhanced medical services.

RMBGH is a 107-bed capacity hospital that provides medical care to residents of Quezon City.

The Department of Health (DOH) awarded the institution with level 2 accreditation.

RMBGH now has level 2 status, which includes an intensive care unit (ICU) to serve patients requiring close monitoring and intensive care treatment; neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to care for premature/ preterm and seriously-ill newborns; High-Risk Pregnancy Unity (HRPU) for women who are confined with complications arising from pregnancy; and Respiratory Therapy Unit for patients with cardio-pulmonary disorders.

“Now that the DOH has acknowledged the City’s efforts to develop RMBGH into a level-2 hospital, the City can deliver enhanced health care for the residents in the second district,” Belmonte said.

The hospital has also improved its laboratory to tertiary level with a microbiology section.

“We thank the City for the necessary equipment and assistance. We will ensure that our patients receive even higher quality medical treatment,” Hospital Director Dr. Richard Cabotage said.

In March, RMBGH launched its Heart Station with stress test, 12-Lead ECG, Holter, and 2D Echo that provides specialized diagnostic procedures for patients with suspected heart-related illness.

RMBGH also caters to COVID-19 patients.
