LDH bed capacity to increase from 40 to 100

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan — Bed capacity of the Lingayen District Hospital (LDH) will soon be increased from 40 to 100.

This developed after the Pangasinan Provincial Board or Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) in its regular session on July 3, approved a resolution endorsing to the Department of Health (DOH) the application for a license to an increase of bed capacity of the LDH.

LDH is one of the 14 hospitals operated by the Provincial Government of Pangasinan. Along with the Mangatarem District Hospital, said health facility caters to patients from the different municipalities and other areas from nearby localities of the 2nd district of the province.

“Due to the improvement and rehabilitation work done in the hospital, it has recorded a significant increase in the number of patients who preferred to come to the hospital thereby its authorized bed occupancy has been exceeded,” the resolution authored by SP Members Shiela Marie F. Baniqued, Philip Theodore E. Cruz and Atty. Haidee S. Pacheco partly stated.

Quality and accessible health program is one of the main thrusts of the present administration to include improvement of the 14 government-operated hospitals.

“In line with the main thrusts of the present administration to have a mass-based health care program to accommodate all people especially the less fortunate sector of society, there is a need to support the plan of the Lingayen District Hospital to provide a sufficient and higher level of medical and health services to its patients by increasing its bed capacity from 40 to 100,” the resolution said.
