St. Elizabeth Hospital inaugurates new P35million-third floor

Bariles and his group of GenSan bloggers were among the privileged few who were invited to tour the newly-constructed  3rd floor of the St. Elizabeth Hospital a week before it was unveiled to the public.

Elizabeth Hospital

Hospital Administrator Tony Veneracion, husband of Bariles Republic’s good friend Petite of Sud-An Grill and Restaurant, proudly showed them around the area which boasts of 18 new private rooms, 15 new suites, six executive rooms and a deluxe room, totalling to 40 sparkling new rooms.

All of these are equipped with state-of-the art beds and overhead paging panels plus a  flat-screen 24-inch telelevision each for every room.  And  in terms of manning, aside from hiring 18 new nurses and six housekeeping staff they have also trained four nursing aides to act as “butlers” for the needs of their patients and their watchers.

Earlier during the tour, Bariles and the GenSan bloggers were immediately blown over by a spacious lounge complete with comfortable sofa and couches which greeted them upon reaching the third floor.


Other than providing a whole new dimension in health care services, Tony hope that with their expansion, they can also contribute to the city government’s goal in promoting health and wellness services for locals and visitors alike.


Currently, St. Elizabeth Hospital admits around 40-50 patients daily, most of which are children, a fact which is not lost on Tony and the hospital’s administration since they have about 25 specialists, 15 of which are pediatricians, where 9 are resident doctors.


They also have 150 nurses currently including the new hires for the 3rd floor.

St. Elizabeth’s expansion does not end here since they are still upgrading their facilities, starting with their next project – the renovation of their old wing.  This is in line with their inclusion as “pilot test hospital” in Philhealth’s accreditation program for health care institutions who have passed their “seven quality standards“.  Among these are patient’s safety, patient’s rights, quality management, etc.

Tony added, “This accreditation process has been ongoing since 2007 and it’s a very tedious thing.  Less than 30% of the hospitals in the country have passed Philhealth’s standards.  We are proud to say that in Region 12, we are the only institution they have chosen to be the pilot hospital and we are already in the final stage of evaluation.”

Congratulations Tony V and to the rest of the St. Elizabeth Hospital Family. With you leading the way, there is no doubt that very soon, St. Elizabeth will be known as South Central Mindanao’s premier health and wellness institution.

      @tanchi, Tony V assured us that it will be a non-stop drive to further improve their services and facilities which augurs well for the city. 🙂

      @gensanite, hahaha! May greetings on the side pa ha? If only we could get some St. Elizabeth staff to comment here, too. Then parang FORUM na tuloy. But I agree with you, ryan that this will result to other hospitals following suit the great example of St. Elizabeth.

      @dimple, really? Hehehe! It’s really impressive! Imagine??? Flat TV’s in every room??? That’s usually reserved for hotel suites! I hope you can blog about your experience there. Thanks. 🙂

      @rammyboi, hi! Promise? I will watch out for your blog post about our tour up on the 3rd floor of St. Elizabeth. 🙂

      @bravo six, am pretty sure that Tony V owes much to his workers including you in his fruitful pursuit to provide the generals with world-class health care services. It is touching to note that you have not forgotten your roots here in GenSan. Good luck on your career, wherever you are. And keep checking back. Ayo-ayo! 🙂

      @odin, magandang gensan! Blogging about our particular localities is our gift to the world! Thanks for your constant presence here my friend. You need to blog about Makilala, too! 🙂

    with this development, i’m pretty sure that all of the hospitals in the city will follow suit… a “facelift” of an institution is always welcome news as it shows us that they are more into the well-being of the general public as they serve them with quality service in healthcare… congratulations to ST. ELIZABETH HOSPITAL on this development… and kudos is due to the owners, and management of the hospital…

    let me greet my cousin who works in this hospital… hello, ANGGA… nindota sa inyong bag-ong expansion sa… hehehe… 🙂

  17. sheeneey says:

  18. anne says:

    wow!!! ang ganda!!! pwede na e-compete sa mga VIP’s room dito sa saudi na pinagtatrabahuan ko.

    hopefully makawork din ako jan when i come back for good sa general santos city.

    Congatulations to all!!!!

  19. Disappointed Customer says:

    We should not only be looking into the expansion of the structure but should also consider upgrading our equipment. I had my father admitted on that hospital but the doctors attended on the case could not even give a clear result of the medical examination. They want my father to undergo an operation that even them do not know the clear aim of that operation.

    Mga bobo mga doctor dyan sa St. Elizabeth. Magbigay kayo ng tamang serbisyo kasi binabayaran kayo ng mahal!!!

  21. Domingo Aquino says:

    Tanong ko lang po, bakit po pag nanganak ka ng normal delivery, ang charged ay sa operating room? Bakit ganoon? di naman sya na-CS?

    Ang pagpalit ng bedsheet ay every other day! Dapat po araw-araw para po malinis ang pasyente!

    Ang binayaran namin po sa hospital lang ng nanay ay mahigit P21,000 pwera pa PF ng doctor, hospital bill ng baby at PF ng baby!

    Di po ba sobra na ito kasi normal delivery lang po sya?

  22. joy says:

    i’m proud to be part of st. elizabeth family(2001-2005)phic staff!!!

  24. sankoi says:

    1. bariles says:
