Calatrava Municipal Hospital (CMH)

Location: Calatrava, Negros Occidental



Authorized Bed Capacity: 10



Calatrava Municipal Hospital was constructed through a bill in the congress. Its proponent was Hon. Congressman Salvador Laguda of the First District of Negros Occidental. There were many hospital sites offered but finally it was built on the lot donated by the municipality where the previous Municipal Hall was located. But because the said area was not enough for the module, a certain Mrs. Hydia D. Balgos, a concern citizen donated additional area of 5,187 sq. meters more or less just to augment and complete the equity needed.

Construction started in early 1991 and it was formally inaugurated on June 29, 1992. Before it was formally inaugurated on June 29, 1992, personnel were already hired and assumed office on May 4, 1992.

The hospital operates on an authorized 10 capacity in spite the fact that more patients coming for admission, as well as consultation, not only from Calatrava but also from neighboring cities and municipalities. During the first year of operation, it was under the Provincial Health Office and its funding came from the National Government.

On April 1, 1993, the Local Government Code was fully implemented and the hospital with all its personnel and facilities were devolved to the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental. The Local Government Unit is very supportive to the hospital.

On January 1, 2004 to date, the hospital is under the Economic Enterprise Development Department of the Provincial government headed by Atty. Japhet T. Masculino.
