General Cailles Memorial District Hospital

GCMDH Profile

 HOSPITAL BRIEF PROFILE

 

General. J. Cailles Memorial District Hospital (GJCMDH) is a Secondary Level Hospital serving eight coastal municipalities of Laguna de Bay: Kalayaan, Paete, Pakil, Pangil, Siniloan, Mabitac, Famy and Sta. Maria.

In 1955, upon the representation of the officials of the Second District of Laguna, the Provincial Board through the able leadership of Governor Dominador E. Chipeco, P 40,000.00 was appropriated for the construction of hospital for the Baybay towns, and Pakil was chosen as the appropriate site for the hospital to be constructed.

 

Pakil was the second hometown of General Juan Cailles, the former governor of Laguna for 30 years. Almost 1 hectare of land was donated by these people wherein the hospital shall be built:

  1. Mr. & Mrs. Ursole  Osero
  2. Mr. & Mrs. Juan Magsalansan
  3. Mr. & Mrs. Alejandro Macabasco
  4. Mr. & Mrs. Ricardo Salem
  5. Mr. & Mrs. Crisanta C Macapanpan
  6. Mr. Simeon Sagritalo
  7. Miss Mercedes Pasang
  8. Mrs. Eugenia Maulawin
  9. Mr. Elias Fajardo
  10. Mr. & Mrs. Benito Sanchez
  11. Mr. RUbem Maulawin
  12. Mr. Ambrosio Duran
  13. Mr. Ignacio Vallejo
  14. Mr. Ramon Salem
  15. Miss Modesta Pajel

On July 28, 1956, GJCMDH formerly Pakil Emergency Hospital was inaugurated and opened to the public. Through the initiative of Dr. Jose T. Camatoy, Chief of the Laguna Provincial Hospital, a team of hospital personnel were assigned to start the operation.

 

At first it was operated as part of the Laguna Provincial Hospital with 25-bed capacity. But with the passage of R.A. No. 1600 this health institution became independent and named General Juan Cailles Memorial Hospital and financed jointly by the National, Provincial Municipal Governments and from donations received from the civic-minded officials and residents of the lakeshore towns.

 

The necessity of expansion arose immediately. More people looked upon the hospital for medical guidance and assistance. Even patients from the municipalities of Pulillo, and Infanta Quezon were being brought for reason of their geographical location. There were times when even halls and corridors had to accommodate bed patients. Different drug companies pitched in with cash and equipment.

 

Because of the increasing number of in- and out-patients coming, an annex building (a pre-fabricated building) in 1972, was constructed, separating the Administration Office from the main building. On June 4,1973, there was adequate space to accommodate more in-patients, and was approved to operate as 50-bed capacity hospital, under R.A. # 4226.

 

Confidence of the people for medical assistance gained. Patients seeking health services to this institution increased. The situation prompted the Staff to construct an out patient building for the Ancillary Services.

 

The local Government code of 1991 also known as R.A. No. 7160 was signed on October 10, 1991, were implemented and the devolution of the District Hospital took effect on April 1993. The delivery of the basic health services and facilities as well as the powers, functions, responsibilities and resources were devolved to the Local Government Units.
