The old building of the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center will soon become the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) College of Medicine and Allied Health Services, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and PLM president Emmanuel Leyco signed the deed of donation for the old structure during the celebration of the school’s 55th foundation anniversary on Monday.

Andidito na, pirmado na (It’s here and it’s signed). We have a new campus,” Leyco said in his speech.


The Colleges of Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Science, and School of Public Health would also transfer to the new site.

Leyco said the new campus would enable PLM to accommodate more students in the future.

In 2020, the construction of the Bagong (New) Ospital ng Maynila started.

The following year, Domagoso committed the current Ospital ng Maynila building to PLM.

The Bagong Ospital ng Maynila will be inaugurated Friday (June 24), coinciding with the 451st celebration of “Araw ng Maynila” (Manila Day).

“Within the year, magamit na (the hospital can already be used). While we’re doing that, the transition for PLM making it fit, physically fit ‘yung (the) building, para sa inyo, ‘yun po ang mga susunod na mangyayari (for the students, that’s what will happen in the coming days),” Domagoso said.

The city government allotted PHP2.3 billion for the 10-story Bagong Ospital ng Maynila on Quirino Avenue.


The fully air conditioned hospital has 384 beds, 12 intensive care units, 20 private rooms, three-story parking area, and a helipad for emergency cases.
