SLMC said its facilities in Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City have already reached full capacity of allocated COVID-19 ICU beds as of July 13.
“In this regard, we request the public to consider bringing critically ill COVID-19 suspects to alternative hospitals so they will receive immediate and utmost care. We will keep everyone updated once we reopen admissions for COVID-19 ICU beds,” SLMC said.
SLMC, however, remains open to accommodate non-COVID patients, including out-patient procedures.
The MVP Group’s MMC said its emergency room, regular wards and critical care units are also full and that it had to augment manpower to accommodate more patients.
