Valladolid, Himamaylan hospitals revert to non-COVID designation

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday announced the reversion of Valladolid District Hospital and Valeriano M. Gatuslao Memorial Hospital in Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, to non-COVID centers, noting that active cases in Negros Occidental have tremendously dropped in the past several weeks.

Lacson said the two district hospitals may now accept non-COVID patients on December 1 this year, while the Cadiz District Hospital will remain as the sole COVID-19 facility in the province.

Mayor Rogelio Raymund Tongson earlier requested Lacson that Valeriano M. Gatuslao Memorial Hospital in Himamaylan City be reverted to a non-COVID hospital, so his constituents and people of the 5th District having non-COVID-19 related concerns and illnesses, will no longer be compelled to go to Kabankalan City to seek medical assistance.

“But of course, at any time, God forbid, and a new surge may happen, then we will be ready to open more hospitals for COVID,” Lacson said.

The number of COVID-19 active cases in Negros Occidental has gone down to 487, as of November 28.

Lacson said that the annex building of Cadiz District Hospital, with 100-bed capacity, will be used as the COVID-19 center, while its main building will be accepting all kinds of medical treatment.*
