Las Piñas General Hospital is a 150-bedLevel III-Tertiary hospital of the Department of Health. It is the only DOH Retained General hospital in the South of Metro Manila. It caters to the marginalized group of population in the 4 cities of the South (Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Paranaque &Pasay) and the 2 adjacent Municipalities of Cavite (Bacoor & Imus).
Although LPGH &STC has been upgraded and approved as a tertiary hospital, its plantilla manpower complement is still for a 50-bed secondary hospital because of no significant budget increase. To cope with this staffing inadequacy, the hospital hire additional hospital personnel such as doctors, nurses and paramedical staff through job orders or contract of service agreements with budget augmentation provided by DOH central office. The hospital was also given additional funds to pay for the allowances of nurses hired under the RN Heals Project of DOH and DOLE.
Currently, the 4th Building of the hospital is undergoing construction to complete the infrastructure facilities under its development plan so that the hospital’s 200-bed mandate under the Republic Act is achieved. Additional equipment were acquired to ensure provision of the needed hospital services.
At present the hospital is still awaiting for the approval and implementation of the proposed hospital standard staffing requirement for a level 3 facility.
