Relocation of Gallares Hospital in Cortes pushed
Published by Bohol Sunday Post, September 2013
Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital (GCGMH) got a boost for its planned relocation in Cortes, Bohol with the assurance of funding its construction of a new medical facility.
Bohol Gov. Edgar M. Chatto said on Friday that the Department of Health (DOH) through its Secretary Enrique T. Ona assured the provincial government of funding the hospital’s new found site and building soon.

The provincial government has committed to donate five hectares in Cortes town for the accommodation of the hospital’s building facility and other facilities.
And the DOH will ascertain that budget for the construction of the hospital will be included every year until it is completed, said the governor during the “Kita ug Ang Gobernador” radio program aired over all radio stations in the province.
The total estimate of the project is P2.9 billion, said hospital chief Dr. Nenita M. Po during a recent gathering of doctors and health workers. She said that there’s a need to transfer the facility as it is becoming crowded and as if there’s no enough room for expansion as its clientele is growing every day.
GCGMH, the former Bohol Provincial Hospital, is a 225-bed capacity but in actual utilization it serves with 250-bed under the level 2 general license category. The bed capacity is apportioned to 200 beds authorized for PhilHealth; 50 actual and 175 beds for charity patients.
It has major departments, such as surgical, medical, OB-Gyne and Pediatrics while accredited departments are general surgery, internal medicine, OB-Gyne, General Pediatrics and Pathology with  major services include the medical, nursing. Administrative and finance, Dr. Po said. Other departments include Outpatient (OPD), radiology, laboratory (clinical, anatomic), anesthesia and dental.
The hospital is currently manned by a total of 748 personnel, including regular personnel (335); casual, one; contractual, 127;  job orders, 88; security guards, 21; RN Heals, 168; province-paid, 4; and medical pool, 4.
Its existing programs include, center for wellness, asthma clinic, diabetes program, family planning, dental health, mental health, drug and substance abuse clinic, cancer prevention, HIV/AIDS prevention, rabies control program and reproductive health program.
The hospital then started with only two-room capacity is a government medical facility and a non-profit. It was constructed under Republic Act 3116 as amended by RA 3168 when it opened on October 19, 1929 with only 8-bed capacity.
Then Congressman Bartolome Cabangbang sponsored a bill in Congress renaming it to GCGMH on April 6, 1984 by virtue of Batas Pambansa Blg. 640. The said law was amended by RA 7266 increasing the number of bed capacity to 225. (RVO)

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
