Aurora Memorial Hospital (AMH) was officially devolved to the Provincial Government of Aurora in 1993. Prior to the devolvement, AMH was managed and operated by the Department of Health from 1948-1992. The new AMH was inaugurated on February 19, 2012, providing service capability of Level 1 with authorized bed capacity of 49. The occupancy rate in CY 2013 was 89% and 158% in CY 2018. In view of the increasing number of out-patients and in-patients, we plan that the different areas of services be departmentalized in order to upgrade the service capability to Level II, thus the need for creation of Medical Specialty positions and other allied professions. Increasing into level II hospital will enable to provide additional services such as: Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, CT scan. While waiting for the completion of ward 3, we included in our proposed budget for CY 2020, the construction of ward 4. Manpower complement, the nurses in particular does not conform to the DOH ratio of nurses to a patient which is 1:12 this is a big problem to all hospitals because of DOH hiring of nurses in the Nurse Deployment Program and offering much higher salary. Supplies of drugs and medicine, medical supplies and reagents are not sufficient to address the needs of outpatient and admitted patient. Thus, we cannot fully Implement the NO BALANCE PROGRAM of Philhealth. This problem will be partially solve once we purchased these items again in PGH.
