THE PHILIPPINE HOSPITAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN, 2017 – 2022


“All for Health towards Health for All”

I. BACKGROUND

The Philippine Hospital Development Plan (PHDP) supports the national agenda of health
sector reform through the establishment, development and enhancement of the edificial and
operational aspects of hospitals as integral to the overall healthcare delivery. The PHDP
was first developed in 2000as a ten-year plan to address the transition scenario of the
devolution of health service delivery by virtue of R.A. 7160, or the Local Government
Code of 1991.

Health facilities development, particularly the upgrading of hospitals in the periphery,


including provincial and district hospitals, was defined as a Department of Health (DOH)
policy thrust in A.O. 18 s. 1998, which articulated the vision of “quality health care
available to every Filipino especially the poor.” The Health Sector Reform Agenda
(HSRA), per A.O. 51 s. 1999 further defined areas of reform that included upgrading
critical capacities of public hospitals to improve quality of services, improve efficiency,
and adopt revenue enhancement measures.

The PHDP sought to contribute in enabling a responsive hospital system that ensures
equitable quality health care. Its objectives included providing policy direction and
technical support in health service planning, upgrading of hospitals to meet standards
according to respective service capabilities, developing specialty and sub-specialty centers
among the DOH regional hospitals, and establishing the Philippine Center for Specialized
Healthcare as end-referral, training and research facility.

In 2000, the total estimated resources required for investments in health infrastructure,
medical and information technology equipment amounted to 46.8 billion pesos for ten
years. The estimates covered for 250 provincial and district hospitals, 15 city hospitals, and
72 DOH hospitals. Between 2001 and 2006, capital outlay funds from the national
government were only minimal and sporadic, and some hospital upgrading projects
depended on foreign-assisted projects. Income retention in DOH hospitals became a special
provision in the General Appropriations Act, FY 2003.

A.O. 2005-0023 provided for the implementation of FOURmulaONE for Health (F1 for
Health), the medium-term framework for health reforms from 2005 to 2010. To achieve
the end goal of a more responsive health system, and striving to ensure access to and
availability of essential and basic health packages, one strategy under health service
delivery was the upgrading of health facilities and strengthening of corresponding human
resource capability in order to comply with licensing and accreditation requirements, as
well as to assure the quality of both basic and specialized health services. In 2007, the
PHDP expanded to include other hospitals under the government agencies such as the
3
Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Philippine National Police, and those under State
Universities and Colleges (SUCs). In 2008, the plan further expanded to include health
facilities such as barangay health stations, rural health centers, health laboratories, blood
service facilities, among others. The PHDP served as the macro plan for the Health
Facilities Enhancement Program (HFEP).

The HFEP‟s objectives included upgrade of priority RHC‟s and BHS‟s to provide basic
obstetrical and neonatal care (BEmONC) services; upgrade of levels 1 and 2 government
hospitals to provide BEmONC and help decongest large tertiary hospitals; upgrade of
level 2 and tertiary government hospitals to provide Comprehensive Emergency
Obstetrical and Neonatal Care (CEmONC) services; and upgrade of DOH medical
centers and hospitals to provide specialty and sub-specialty services. HFEP sources of
funding were mainly from the national government – in the GAA, including
Congressional initiatives, “Katas ng VAT”, and selected programs of the DOH.

Recognizing the gains from the implementation of the HSRA and F1 for Health, but
emphasizing that the country still needed a breakthrough in the equity and access to critical
health services of poor Filipino families, A.O. 2010-0036 first enunciated the DOH agenda
towards achieving Universal Health Care, or KalusuganPangkalahatan. The agenda‟s
approaches included expanding the capacity of government owned and operated hospitals
and health facilities to provide quality services to help attain the health-related targets of
the Millennium Development Goals, attend to traumatic injuries and other types of
emergencies, and manage non-communicable diseases and their complications. As also
provided, the HFEP shall leverage funds for improved preparedness of targeted facilities.

Between 2010 and 2014, HFEP provided infrastructure funding to 1,199 hospitals and
infirmaries for 11.7 billion pesos, and to rural health units (RHU) and city health offices
(CHO) for 5.2 billion pesos. Funding for medical equipment of 1,092 hospitals and
infirmaries was worth 6.3 billion pesos and 2.9 billion pesos for 3,154 RHU‟s and CHO‟s.
Infrastructure funding amounted to a yearly average3.4 billion pesos, and equipment
funding to 1.8 billion pesos.

Aligned to the country‟s long-term vision enshrined in AmBisyonNatin 2040, A.O. 2016-
0038 defined the Philippine Health Agenda 2016-2022 (PHA), committed to make every
Filipino‟s right to health tangible, in line with the promise of real positive change thepeople
can feel. Of the three guarantees of the PHA, health facility development serves to
contribute in the access to health interventions through functional service delivery
networks, where facilities in the network are ensured fully-equipped and staffed, and
primary care networks are linked to Level 3 hospitals and centers that provide specialty
care. The PHA guidelines also provide for the transformation of select DOH hospitals into
facilities with multi-specialty training capabilities and reference laboratories.

The DOH‟s Health Facility Development Bureau (HFDB), in pursuit of its mission to
provide leadership and technical expertise for the continuous development of health
facilities as effective and dynamic providers of quality care, is mandated to develop plans,
policies, programs, projects and strategies related to health facility development, planning,
operation and maintenance. It is in this context that the HFDB took the initiative and
facilitated the review and update of the PHDP as consistent with the PHA, AmBisyonNatin
2040, as well as the country‟s commitment to the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development. The PHDP 2017-2022 purposefully focuses on the further development of
DOH and other government hospitals as intended in the HSRA, and

4
currently in the PHA, and its framework is expected to pave strategic direction and
consistent, complementing focus to the development needs of the larger spectrum of health
facilities in the Philippines.

II. RATIONALE

The PHA, marching under the banner of Healthy Philippines 2022, trumpeting the clarion
call “All for Health towards Health for All,” and taking stock of the milestones and
persisting challenges in the last thirty years of the pursuit of health sector reform,
recognizes issues that the sector needs to address to meet our guarantee in responsiveness,
or in the promotion and delivery of healthcare through means that respect, value and
empower clients and patients as they interact with the health system. The addressing of
needs in the development of hospitals and other health facilities should step up to the
challenge, resolve the lingering perception of poor quality and undignified provision of
care as indicated by long queues and waiting times, poor keeping of and irretrievable health
records, overcrowding and under-provision of care, among others. These are echoes from
when the PHDP was formulated in 2000 to address the irrational distribution of services in
the Philippine Hospital System due to the devolution of health services, and the DOH only
retaining seven percent of the facilities.

The implementation of the PHDP had a sluggish start in getting the needed resources for
hospital development, but the last medium term was able to provide the most capital
investing seen in decades through the HFEP, buoyed also by allocations from revenues in
the implementation of R.A. 10351 or, the Sin Tax Law. As ofyear2015, 70 DOH hospitals,
685 LGU hospitals, 2,626 rural and urban health centers, and 2,862 barangay health stations
have benefited from the HFEP. The update of the PHDP in line with Healthy Philippines
2022 should be able to improve the rational allocation of resources to stay the course of the
developmental direction envisioned and aspired for the hospitals, and for other facilities.

Towards the end-term of the KalusuganPangkalahatan, through A.O. 2015-0033, the High
Impact Five Strategy campaigned to intensify patient-centered activities, extend access to
medical and surgical services to anti-poverty program areas, ensure availability of
medicines, and implement model plans for service delivery networks (SDN). Per A.O.
2014-0046, the SDN is an instrument to strengthen service delivery, and ensure continuity
of services across population health interventions and primary care, emergency, medical
and surgical interventions in general hospitals, and referral to specialty hospitals and other
facilities. For Healthy Philippines 2022, the SDN is expected to comprise well-equipped
and fully-staffed facilities, to tightly link primary care networks to level 3 and specialty
hospitals, and to fulfil the full breadth of quality services at closest proximity to families
and communities. The PHDP needs a strategic pace that will nurture and ensure inherent
strengths of the facilities in the networks, including (and especially) the end-referral,
tertiary care providers. This would mean not only infrastructural and equipping processes,
but also developmental processes such as planning and technical assistance consistent with
standards in licensing, the National Health Insurance Program, and even, organizational
and staffing patterns per DBM-DOH Joint Circular 2013-1.

Immediately, the above-stated need also implies a more finely tuned harmonization and
synchronization of planning, advisory and technical assistance across the full spectrum of
programmatic responses that primarily the HFDB extends to clients and partners, from

5
Integrated Hospital Operations and Management to Patient Safety to Hospitals Safe from
Disasters and Emergencies (as will be detailed in the section “Hospital Institutional
Operations”).

The guarantees of Healthy Philippines 2022 are inextricably linked – universal health
insurance at the demand side, and SDN‟s at the supply side are complementary and
mutually beneficial to contribute in achieving the best health outcomes. We have steadily
progressed in our gains to decrease maternal, infant and under-five mortality rates, and
even in bringing down tobacco consumption, but still short of the targets. Life expectancy
improved, but comparably still lagging in the region. The Philippine Hospital System – and
the whole health sector – needs more formidable game changers to win over the triple
disease burden across all life stages. The PHDP 2017-2022 will need its goals, objectives
and strategies positioned towards a future that is healthy, stable and upwardly mobile for
Filipinos today and the next.

III. SCOPE OF HOSPITAL FACILITIES

The policy direction of the Department of Health is guided by the knowledge on the
distribution of hospital facilities. Cognizant of this, the DOH through the Health Facilities
and Services Regulatory Bureau (HSFRB) – then the Bureau of Health Facilities and
Services – conducted a research project to get an overview of the typology of the existing
hospital classification which shows variations in the service characteristics of hospitals not
only among the different categories but also within the same category. In order to address
inconsistencies and come up with a more homogenous category of health facilities, A.O.
2012-0012, or the Rules and Regulations Governing the New Classification of Hospitals
and Health Facilities in the Philippines was issued on July 18, 2012. An amendment to this
was issued on September 3, 2015 though A.O. 2012-0012- A.

Currently, hospitals in the Philippines are classified according to ownership, scope of


services and functional capacity. Each has well defined roles, functions, capabilities,
facilities, organizational structure and staffing standards. The rules and regulation for
hospital classification are promulgated to protect and promote the health of the public by
ensuring a minimum quality of service rendered by hospitals and to ensure safety of
patients and personnel. This is an efficient model because it is designed to treat patients at
the appropriate levels.

The Philippine Hospital System is composed of government and privately owned hospitals.
These hospitals are classified into general (Levels 1, 2 and 3) or specialty and either trauma-
capable or trauma-receiving. Based on the 2015 data of HFSRB, there are a total of 1,161
hospitals in the country, 405 of which are government owned. In comparison, there are
more privately owned hospitals (756) than government owned. The table below shows the
distribution of licensed government general hospitals and bed capacity by service
capability by region in the Philippines.

In assessing the adequacy of hospital services, the bed population ratio is usually used as a
rough indicator. Using the standard bed to population ratio of 1:500 set by the World Health
Organization (WHO), the Philippine target is 1:1,000. As of 2015 statistics, the Philippine
bed to population ratio is 1:1,142. While the target may have been achieved in few regions
of the country, most of the regions still need improvement in terms of resource allocation.
These statistics may be used in the allocation of Health Facility Enhancement Program
(HFEP) funds. To summarize the hospital bed to population ratio by region, refer to the
table below.

The government hospital delivery system involves a network of national and local
government hospitals. The Department of Health has retained a total of 70 hospitals all
over the country. These are distributed into specialty centers, special hospitals, regional
hospitals or medical centers, and sanitaria. To date, there are 4 corporate specialty level III
hospitals (Philippine Heart Center, Lung Center of the Philippines, National Kidney and
Transplant Institute and Philippine Children‟s Medical Center) and 8 sanitaria.

1. Integrated Hospital Operations and Management Program (IHOMP): Per A.O.


44-A, s. 1999, provides program planning, logistics support, capability building, social
mobilization, monitoring and evaluation towards improvement of hospital performance
through sound and efficient clinical care and management systems with the end-view
of providing quality health services.

2. Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) for Health Facilities: Adjunct to IHOMP,


pursuant to A.O. 2006-0002, and in view of the National Framework for Quality in
Health (A.O. 2010-0007), supports the fuller realization of genuine health system
reform, and enables an approach to strategically attain the provision of the best
healthcare available in face of evolving, newer diagnostic and treatment modalities,
changing patient and client expectations, and constraints in physical, human and
financial resources.

3. Patient Safety Program: Patient Safety is the fundamental principle of quality patient
care. The Patient Safety Program under the DOH-HFDB has come up with a vision of
Safe Quality Healthcare for All by the year 2020 working towards a non- punitive but
just and Culture of Safety in healthcare service delivery. Major activities under the
program include the development of an administrative order, Standards of Care for
Older Persons in All Healthcare Settings, harmonization of Green and Safe Healthcare
Facilities thru a national summit, addressing not only the physical structure design of
healthcare facilities towards patient and healthcare workers safety but also
harmonizing organizational policies and directions and the development of

14
Alliances for Patient Safety Network. Gaps in safe healthcare service delivery will be
addressed thru the creation of adequate and appropriate health human resource: patient
safety officers anchored on the issued policy guidelines.

4. Infection Prevention and Control Program: As one of the core components of patient
safety, pursuant to A.O. 2016-0002, provides guidance in the establishment and
effective implementation of the program in healthcare facilities, and aims to sustain
implementation of harmonized standards, institutionalized training, improved
surveillance, innovative research and continuous monitoring and evaluation.

5. Healthcare Waste Management Program: Pursuant to the Joint DENR-DOH A.O.


No. 02, series of 2005, in consonance with existing environmental, sanitation and health
laws, rules and regulations, supports the establishment and maintenance of policies,
guidelines and standards for the safe management of healthcare waste, including
stringent adherence and continuous review of emerging trends and technologies.

6. Hospitals Safe from Emergencies and Disasters: Per A.O. 2013-0014, to contribute
to the goal of reducing disaster risks, ensure the protection and continuous operations
of hospitals and health facilities, and save lives during emergencies and disasters,
oversees compliance to policy, guidelines and standards, including evaluation and
setting of recommendations for further enhancements affecting structural and non-
structural indicators of the policy.

7. National Voluntary Blood Service Program (NVBSP): On behalf of the DOH as lead
agency in the health sector and convenor of all stakeholders to ensure strong
collaboration for the promotion of voluntary blood service, pursuant to R.A. 7719, or
the “National Blood Services Act of 1994,” and pertinent policies such as A.O. 9, s.
1995, A.O. 2005-0002 and A.O. 2010-0001, pursues blood safety and adequacy
towards quality care and patient safety, as well as the strengthening of blood service
facilities to ensure efficient, timely availability of quality and safe blood and blood
products.

8. National Unit for Health Laboratories (NUHL): Created as defined by D.P.O. 2012-
5724, pursuant to A.O. 2012-0021, facilitates the development of the National Strategic
Plan for the National Health Laboratory Network and implement essential action plans,

Heart and Lung Centers
The 2013 PHSreported that diseases of the heart had been consistently the leading cause of death
for several years. The number of deaths from this condition comprised 22.3 percent of reported
deaths, or 6,159 deaths in 2013, higher than the report in 2012. Of the leading causes of morbidity,
hypertension (410,432) was among the top five, and three others affected the lungs and the
respiratory system – acute respiratory infection (2,174,740), acute lower respiratory tract infection,
or ALRTI and pneumonia (647,597), and bronchitis (249,173).The DOH consistently promotes
prevention of heart and lung diseases, including smoking cessation, healthy lifestyles, and recently,
the HPN/DM clubs. Currently, the apex centers for the treatment of heart and lung diseases are the
Philippine Heart Center and Lung Center of the Philippines, respectively. For the PHDP 2017-
2022, other DOH hospitals currently having service capabilities for treatment heart and lung
diseases shall be supported for further upgrading, as below.

There are commonalities to essential facilities required for heart and lung medical and surgical
interventions.The PHDP also plans the establishment of Heart and Lung Centers through the DOH
hospitals as below. However, limitations prevailing in this medium term include the lack of
specialists (namely, thoracic surgeons) in several regions of the country. In partnership with the
professional associations, the situation may be improved, and further regional expansion will
become viable.

The 2013 PHS reported that kidney-related diseases - nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis
- ranked ninth in the leading causes of mortality in the Philippines, and it has maintained that rank
on a five-year average. The Philippine Renal Disease Registry, whichshows the yearly extent of
dialysis and kidney transplant procedures in the country, reported that new dialysis patients (both
peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis) continued to grow from 8,922 in 2009 to 17,976 in 2015.
There were also 475 kidney transplant procedures performed across 23 transplant centers in the
country, 12 located in the National Capital Region. National Kidney and Transplant Institute (the
national apex center), Philippine General Hospital, Region 1 Medical Center, Vicente Sotto
Memorial Medical Center, and Northern Mindanao Medical Center are government-owned.

For the PHDP 2017-2022, as shown below, additional Kidney and TransplantCentersare intended
for Mindanao,Visayas and Luzon coverage areas, as below,and other DOH hospitals with kidney
and transplant capability shall be supported toenhance services.

In recognition of the provisions in A.O. 2012-0012, the PHDP shall additionally support the
establishment of hemodialysis clinics in level 3 DOH hospitals. Further, also in recognition of the
cost effectiveness of the procedure for both clients and health providers, other hospitals will be
supported in the establishment of peritoneal dialysis, including the promotion ofrelated ambulatory
and self-care (home-based care).

Oncology Centers
The epidemiology of disease burden in the Philippines has shifted from infectious diseases to non-
communicable diseases in the recent years. Malignant Neoplasms or Cancer is the 3rd leading cause
of death in the country based on the Philippine Health Statistics 2013. The number of cases of
Cancer patients in the Philippines is steadily increasing from 24,385 in 2010 to 49,016 in 2013,
and is expected to continue to increase. In recognition of this, the Department of Health is
intensifying its health promotion campaigns to educate the Filipinos in avoiding risk factors, and
in recognition of early signs and symptoms of cancer through the National Cancer Prevention and
Control Program. In addition, the Department of Health plans to develop health facilities that
would be able to address the health needs of Cancer patients and survivors.

Currently, while there are Oncology Unit and Cancer Section in selected DOH and LGU hospitals
such as East Avenue Medical Center and Corazon LocsinMontelibano Memorial, there is yet to be
a fully functional government Cancer Center. To address these currently the DOH is already in the
process of upgrading the hospitals listed below to come Oncology Centers:

Orthopedic Centers
The Philippine Orthopedic Center is the foremost government tertiary referral hospital which
caters to the various orthopedic needs of patients. Among the DOH retained hospitals there are
only nine (9)which have a separate Department of Orthopedics with its own ward, OPD and OR;
While some of the other DOH hospitals offers orthopedic services as a subspecialty under the
Department of Surgery.

The Department of Health in recognition of the need of the Filipinos throughout the country to
receive appropriate orthopedic health services shall develop Orthopedic Centers (OC) in selected
DOH hospitals who currently have its own Orthopedic Department as detailed in the table below.
Orthopedic Centers which shall be developed by the Department of Health are envisioned to be
able to provide the entire spectrum of health services in Orthopedics and its sub-specialties. While
not all regions will have its own OCs due to limitation of physician specializing in Orthopedics
and its sub-specialty, all DOH Level 3 hospitals will be upgraded such that at least each will have
an Orthopedic Department with its own ward, Out Patient Department Section and Operating
Room. In addition all provincial hospitals shall be assisted by the Department of Health to at least
be able to provide orthopedic services as a sub specialty under the Department of Surgery.

Lastly the Philippine Orthopedic Center shall be further developed by the Department of Health to
serve as the apex, the leader and premier institution in terms of Orthopedics services in the country.
Its production prosthetic surgical appliance factory shall be modernized and will serve to produce
supply for the needs of the entire country.

Physical Medicine
andRehabilitation Centers
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Medicine is the branch of medicine concerned with the
diagnosis, evaluation, and management of persons of all ages with physical and/or cognitive
impairment and disability. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is also very closely related and
gave rise to sports medicine. While there are myriad of conditions being addressed by
Rehabilitation Medicine that has nothing to do with Orthopedics specialty, Orthopedic Specialty
has traditionally been the most closely associated medical specialty to Rehabilitation Medicine and
this close association has been kept until the present.

In the Philippines, among the DOH hospitals, it is the Philippine Orthopedic Center which
espouses the most comprehensive Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation services. Which aptly also
includes crafting of individualized prosthetics and assistive devices.

In recognition of the need for increasing the number of health facilities offering physical medicine
and rehabilitation services to cater to the needs of Filipinos, the Philippine Hospital Development
Plan 2016- 2022 aims to establish Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Centers (PMRCs) in
selected regions in the country. PMRCs shall be established in selected DOH medical centers
which are also target for the establishment of Orthopedic Centers as detailed below. In addition,
all DOH Regional Hospitals/medical centers as well as all provincial hospitals are envisioned to
at least be able to provide basic rehabilitation medicine services.

Centers for Infectious Disease
and Tropical Medicine
Infectious Diseases remains to be a major public health problem in the country. Based on the
Philippine Health Statistics 2013, three of the Ten Leading Cause of Mortality in the Philippines
are infectious in nature. In addition, with the advent of globalization, the Philippines, just like other
countries has experienced an increase in incidence of emerging and re-emerging diseases such
as SARS, MERSCoV, Zika Virus and HIV/AIDS.

In recognition of these needs, the Department of Health plans to upgrade the capability of the
Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM) and San Lazaro Hospitals (SLH) both as apex
Centers for Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine. In addition, the Department shall further
improve the capability of SLH as the National Reference Laboratory for HIV/AIDs, Hepatitis and
STD/STI while the RITM shall be supported to further enhance its research capabilities and as the
National Reference Laboratory for various infectious diseases as detailed in Department Order
393-E s. 2000: “Designation of National Reference Laboratories...”

In addition, to ensure that there will be other tertiary hospitals that will be able to respond both in
terms of laboratory diagnostics and inpatient treatment of patients from emerging and re- emerging
diseases, previously identified Sub-National Reference Laboratory for Infectious Diseases,
Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases shall be also developed into Centers for infectious Disease
and Tropical Medicine with its Sub-National Reference Laboratories further improved.

In addition, the Department of Health recognizes the alarming increase in incidence of HIV cases
in the country. While based on the HIV/AIDs Registry of the Philippines, the national prevalence
of HIV as of 2016 is still less than 1% of the population, there has been a noted dramatic increase
in the number of cases, from 1 HIV/AIDS case reported daily in 2008 to 26 cases per day as of the
June 2016. While there are currently one HIV/AIDS treatment hubs in each region, to be able to
appropriately address the needs for diagnostics and treatment for HIV, the Department of Health
shall develop hospitals towards the direction of having one HIV/AIDs treatment hub or satellite
center per province in the next six years.

Brain Centers
While there are a quite number of hospitals which are able to provide neurological health services,
only a very limited number of hospitals can be considered to be Brain Center. A Brain Center
should be able to provide the complete range of neurological health services which should include
among others neurosurgery subspecialty services. Neurosurgery is perhaps one of the specialties
in medicine that has the least number of practitioners in the Philippines. The Philippine College of
Surgeon list only 51 diplomate degree holders in neurosurgery, of these more than half or 29 are
practicing in Metro Manila.

In the Philippines there are very limited number of hospitals which are able to cater to patients
requiring neurosurgical procedure primarily due to lack of specialists and most of these are tertiary
private hospitals. Currently, there are only 9 government hospitals which has neurosurgical
capabilities this includes seven DOH hospitals as listed below as well as the Philippine General
Hospitals and the Armed Forces Medical Center which both offers the fellowship training on
neurosurgery. These facilities shall be strongly supported by the Department of Health to be
upgraded into Neuroscience Centers.

Currently the Department is partnering with the St. Luke‟s Medical Center, Bangko Central Ng
Pilipinas and Banco De Oro to develop a Brain Center in East Avenue Medical Center and
hopefully also in the Lung Center of the Philippines. Additional Brain Centers will also be
established in DOH Level 3 hospitals in other selected regions in the next few years. Detailed
below are the Brain Centers to be established in the next six years that would offer neurological
and neurosurgical services.

The Department of Health recognizes the marked regional disparity in the availability of
neurosurgical services in the country. However due to severe limitation in the number of practicing
neurosurgical specialist in the different regions in the country, developing additional Brain Centers
will be a challenge. Nonetheless, to cater to the needs of the Filipinos needing neurological
services, in the regions without Brain Centers, the Department shall develop all tertiary DOH
hospital to be able to have a Department of Neuroscience. Additional Brain Centers may be
developed once the DOH hospital has established a strong Neuroscience Department and already
secured a neurosurgeon subspecialist as among its health human resources.

Psychiatry Centers
A 2004 study by the World Health Organization (WHO) showed that up to 60 percent of people
attending primary care clinics daily are estimated to have one or more mental, neurological and
substance abuse (MNS) disorders. The 2000 Census reported that mental illnesses and mental
retardation rank third and fourth, respectively, among disabilities in the country. The National
Center for Mental Health (NCMH) reported that the country‟s suicide rates for female and male
are estimated at 1.7 and 2.5 per 100,000 population, respectively. The most recent issuance to
guide the DOH‟s mental health policy, A.O. 2016-0039, “Revised Operational Framework for a
Comprehensive National Mental Health Program,” the NCMH and regional mental health facilities
are directed to develop models and standards for tertiary level mental health care as well as
psychosocial rehabilitation programs. The PHDP 2017-2022 shall support the improvements of
service capabilities of current Psychiatry Centers, as below.

Eye Centers
The 3rd National Survey on Blindness in the Philippines of 2004 says prevalence of visual
impairment is 0.43. That would mean almost half a million Filipinos are suffering from visual
impairment. The eyes are one of the most important sensory organ of the human body and good
vision is essential for active lifestyle and work productivity. While there is no Philippine data on
the total economic burden of vision loss, in 2014 in the US, vision loss resulted in $ 134B economic
burden. This staggering figure emphasizes the need for any country to provide good public health
care services for eye and vision.

Currently there are already several DOH eye centers throughout the country. The Philippine Health
Insurance Corporation also has specific package for surgical removal of cataract which is the
leading cause of blindness in the country. However, visual impairment and blindness specially in
the rural areas remains a problem as there is inequity in the distribution of ophthalmologist in the
country as well as the availability of ophthalmological facilities. In recognition of this, the
Department through the Philippine Hospital Development Plan (PHDF) emphasizes the need to
upgrade the current government Eye Centers as listed below:

NCR Rizal Medical Center


NCR Quirino Memorial Medical center
NCR Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center
NCR East Avenue Medical Center

Region IX Zamboanga City Medical Center
Region XI Southern Philippines Medical Center

In addition, the Department will also develop additional Eye Centers in DOh Level 3 hospitals in
selected regions in the country based on the recommendation of the Philippine Academy of
Ophthalmology as listed below. Lastly to make ophthalmological services more available for
Filipinos, the PHDF envision to develop all DOH level 3 hospitals and provincial hospitals to be
able to provide basic ophthalmological services.

Dermatology Centers
Diseases of the skin have serious impact in a person‟s quality of life. The World Health
Organization had acknowledged that dermatologic problems were ignored in the past and were
given low priority in which services are absent in tertiary care centers. Recently, there is a big push
at both national and international levels to improve dermatology services primarily because
dermatologic problems post important impact on general health. Many of these dermatologic
conditions are brought about by infection and can be treated with simple remedies. Spread of
dermatologic infections may be prevented if there is proper management.
With the goal of improving diagnosis and treatment of dermatological conditions, plan for
establishment or upgrading of at least one Dermatology Center in the National Capital Region and
in the three island groups of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao through selected DOH hospitals is
incorporated in the Philippine Hospital Development Plan 2017 – 2022. These centers shall
provide training programs for healthcare staff on treatment of common skin conditions and shall
serve as referral centers for other dermatology service providers. Presently, the DOH hospitals
with dermatology centers for upgrading are as follows:

Diabetes Control Centers
The Philippines, ranked 15 in the world for prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM), is home to more
than 3.5 million people diagnosed with DM according to the 2015 statistics of International
Diabetes Federation. Diabetes prevalence in the Philippines is predicted by World Health
Organization at an alarming rate of about 8 million in 2030. Consistently, diabetes belongs to the
top 10 leading causes of mortality (2005 – 2010). Recognizing that diabetes, to a large extent, is a
preventable problem, the Department of Health (DOH) spearheaded the Diabetes Prevention and
Control Program with the goal of reducing morbidity, mortality and disability due to diabetes
through an integrated and comprehensive program on prevention and control of lifestyle-related
diseases.
In view of the fact that diabetes is a chronic lifestyle-related non-communicable disease concern
that cuts across geographical boundaries regardless of age and status, everyone must have access
to services related to its prevention or management. Currently, Region 1 (Ilocos Training and
Regional Medical Center) and Cordillera Administrative Region (Baguio General Hospital and
Medical Center) have Diabetes Control Centers.
The Philippine Hospital Development Plan 2017-2022 envisions to establish additional Diabetes
Control Centers in the remaining regions of the country through selected DOH hospitals as follows:

PHDP 2017 – 2022

Furthermore, all DOH hospitals and provincial hospitals across the country must have basic
diabetes services through diabetes clinics or units that are linked to Diabetes Control Centers.

Trauma Centers
In the 2013 PHS, accidents – external causes of mortality – rank fifth in the leading causes of death
in the country, and they held the rank when averaged in the last five years. With 40,071 deaths,
accidents are only two-thirds short of the top leading cause of death (i.e. diseases of the heart). The
DOH Epidemiology Bureau‟s Online National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (ONEISS)
reported a total of 62,760 injury cases in 2015, or an average of over 5,000 cases per month. The
leading external causes of injuries were transportation/vehicular crash, fall, and contact with sharp
objects, in this order. Bites and stings were fourth in leading causes in the first three quarterly
reports, and mauling/assault in the last. As provided in A.O. 2014-0002, where DOH revised the
National Policy on Violence and Injury Prevention, the policy‟s action framework calls for
hospital care and rehabilitation to prevent further complications of trauma- related emergencies,
and lessen the burden of disability due to violence and injury. For PHDP 2017-2022, the hospitals
identified below shall be supported to upgrade their capabilities as Trauma Centers.

Burn Treatment Centers
In the 2013 PHS, accidents – external causes of mortality – rank fifth in the leading causes of death
in the country. The DOH Epidemiology Bureau‟s Online National Electronic Injury Surveillance
System (ONEISS) shows that in 2015, of the 62,760 injuries reported, burn-related injuries
consistently comprised around two percent of the cases, lowest in the third quarter (1.61 percent),
and highest in the fourth quarter (2.07 percent). Consistently, causes of burn injuries were heat,
electricity and fire, in this order. No fatalities were reported in the first quarter of 2015, but an
average of three fatalities was reported in the last three quarters. The action framework of the
DOH‟s revised National Policy on Violence and Injury Prevention in 2014, or
A.O. 2014-0002 calls for hospital care and rehabilitation to prevent further complications of

Biomarine Poisoning and Toxicology
Centers
The Department of Health mandates immediate reporting of poisoning incidences. As a medical
emergency, poisoning requires prompt and urgent medical management to prevent further damage
or even death. According to Philippine Health Statistics (2010), the prevalence of accidental
poisoning and exposure to noxious substances is 192 cases per 100,000 population which accounts
to 0.2 %.
While cases of poisoning or exposure to noxious substances may occur at any given time or place,
only few DOH hospitals in the country are capable of providing immediate medical management.
This may be brought about by lack of manpower and equipment or infrastructure such as
decontamination and detoxification units. The table below shows the nationwide Poison Control
Facilities of different levels (A, B, C, and D). The Philippine Hospital Development Plan 2017 –
2022 envisions to improve the functionality of these centers and add Poison Information Service
(24/7 Hotline) with Poison Specialist on duty, which is currently available only in East Avenue
Medical Center. Fellowship Training Program on Toxicology will be also offered by EAMC in
2017 to be upgraded to Level A and eventually become the apex toxicology center.

Centers for Traditional and
Alternative Medicine
Provision of traditional and alternative healthcare services is perceived to increase access to
healthcare. Integration of traditional and alternative healthcare into the national healthcare delivery
system is mandated by Republic Act No. 8423 known as the Traditional and Alternative Medicine
Act (TAMA) of 1997. This encourages, promotes and advocates research, development and use of
traditional, alternative, preventive and curative healthcare modalities that have been proven safe,
effective, cost-effective and consistent with government standards on medical practice. The
Philippine Institute of Traditional and Alternative Healthcare (PITAHC), attached to the
Department of Health, was established to attain these objectives. In 2003, the World Health
Organization supported this endeavor by facilitating the development and introduction of
traditional and alternative healthcare curricula in 7 tertiary educational institutions in the country.
Moreover, the DOH hospitals with traditional and alternative medicine centers are as follows:

In furtherance of the goals of the Department of Health to promote safe and effective traditional
and alternative healthcare across the country, at least one center in each island groups of Luzon,
Visayas and Mindanao are envisioned in the Philippine Hospital Development Plan 2017 – 2022.
The following are the future centers for traditional and alternative medicine.

Women’s Health Centers

The Department of Health is faced with a challenge to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 3:
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. This is build upon the foundation
of Millennium Development Goals which includes improvement of maternal health (MDG 5).
Such challenge is multi-faceted due to several problems such as unmet need for reproductive health
services, high maternal mortality ratio, and weak maternal care delivery system among others.
There is slow progress towards improving maternal health and certain conditions originating in the
perinatal period belong consistently in the top 10 leading causes of mortality in the Philippines.
Based on demographic health survey (2013), maternal mortality ratio is 120 per 100,000 live births
while neonatal mortality rate per 1,000 live births is 14.
At present, the DOH hospitals with operational Women‟s Health Center and for upgrade are
Region I Medical Center,Ilocos Training and Regional Medical Center and Mariano Marcos
Memorial Hospital and Medical Center in Region I and Ospitalng Palawan in Region IV-B.

The Philippine Hospital Development Plan 2017 – 2022 envisions presence of Women‟s Health
Centers across all the regions in the country. These centers are key implementers of Women‟s
Health and Safe Motherhood Project with the goal of improving women‟s health by delivering high
quality reproductive health services. Such will also serve as training centers for Basic Emergency
Obstetric and Newborn Care (BEmONC) and Comprehensive Emergency Obstetrics and Newborn
Care (CEmONC).

The 2013 PHS reported 1,761,602 live births and 21,992 infant deaths, or 12.5 percent, which is a
39 percent decrease from the previous year‟s 20.6 percent. Most live births were medically
attended (by medical doctor, nurse, or midwife), 3.4 percent higher than the previous year. Still,
14.3 percentwas attended by traditional birth attendants and/or unlicensed midwives. Infant
mortality rate was 18.2 per 1,000 population, a slight improvement from the previous year. But
those aged less than 28 days had more deaths, 4.1 percent, than those aged one-to-four years, 1.8
percent. Top causes of deaths were pneumonia (14.3 percent), bacterial sepsis (12.4 percent), and
respiratory distress (10.7 percent).

The DOH‟s “Child Survival Strategy” emphasized the need to strengthen health services of
children throughout the stages, and identified that the neonatal period as one of the most crucial
phases in the survival and development of the child. The strategy‟s goal is to reduce neonatal
mortality rates by two-thirds from the 1990 levels.The PHDP 2017-2022 will support the further
improved operations of existing Neonatology Centers, as below, including related resource needs
for the implementation of Republic Act 10747, or “Rare Disease Act of the Philippines.”

fundinga senior
citizen, or an elderly is aged at least 60 years old. The 2013 PHS reported that out of over 98
million Filipino population in 2013, seven percent, or almost 7 million are aged 60 and above. For
the Philippine College of Geriatric Medicine, “while older persons may be cared for by

65
general internists, and family physicians, geriatricians should be sought to provide care for the
frailest older persons...” A geriatrics specialty enables the treatment of older patients, management
of their multiple disease symptoms, and the development of care plans for the special health care
needs of the elderly.

Through Department Order 2010-0085, the DOH designated Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical
Center (JRRMMC) as the main hospital for the National Center for Geriatric Health (NCGH).
Among other responsibilities, JRRMMC was to create a multi-disciplinary team that will provide
medical and psychosocial services for the elderly, andto supervise the provision of quality services
for dementia, and long-term, palliative and respite care for the elderly.For the PHDP 2017-2022,
in recognition of the country‟s mandate foruniversalhealth insurance coverage for senior citizens,
Geriatric Centers shall be established in level 3 DOH hospitals, and geriatric services shall be
ensured in all other DOH and LGU hospitals.
