Upgrading the Health System in Benguet Province, An Analysis of the Province's Tertiary Hospital Project
The province of Benguet is lacking in medical health services. The province has 165 public hospital beds, of which no more than 138 are in use, and 171 private hospital beds. While total number of beds is 336, the actual number in use is 309 beds. The inadequate number of beds coupled with the lack of tertiary health services has resulted in over 2000 patients a year being sent to the Baguio General hospital and Medical Center in Baguio further increasing the overcrowding in the Baguio hospital and imposing additional costs on patients in Benguet. This study completed an integrated financial, economic, stakeholder, sensitivity and risk analysis of the project which targets to complete the referral structure by raising the quality and quantity of medical services that can be offered at the Benguet General Hospital to the level of a tertiary medical facility.
