Brief History

Dennis Molintas Memorial Hospital was established through the enactment of Batas PambansaBlg. 366 which was approved on April 7, 1983 with the initiative of the late Congressman Andres Cosalan Sr. The hospital is a 10-bed capacity municipal hospital located in the municipality of Bokod, Province of Benguet. In 1984, Mr. Toribio and Mrs. Elisa Sinas donated a parcel of land at Luacan, Daclan, Bokod, Benguet where the hospital building was constructed. Hospital operations initially started on December 1, 1984. The hospital, however, was formally inaugurated on December 11, 1984 and the hospital services continued thereafter, headed by DR. ESTEBAN T. PIOK, the first Chief of Hospital.

After almost five (5) months of hospital operations, a strong earthquake which occurred on April 24, 1985, partially damaged the hospital building. Hospital facilities and services were ttransferred to a prefab building of the Daklan Elementary School, to give way for rehabilitation of the damaged hospital units.

In 1988, hospital operations resumed at the renovated/repaired hospital building which was inaugurated on March 10, 1988. It was then headed by DR. WINTON A. YAP.

Meanwhile, on November 29, 1989, Republic Act 6177 was approved changing the name of Dennis Molintas Municipal Hospital to Dennis Molintas Memorial Hospital.

On July 16, 1990, a stronger earthquake totally damaged the hospital and hospital operations were again transferred to a prefab building of the Daklan Elementary School.

On February 1993, a new building was completed, which remains to be the main hospital building at present. Dr. Eduardo B. Calpito assumed as the Chief of Hospital in 1995. Under the management of Dr. Calpito the following structures were built: Multipurpose Building/Hall, Doctors' Quarters, Water Analysis Laboratory, Laundry Room, Dirty Kitchen and the Morgue. In 2010, JICA donated new x-ray machine to the facility.

The resignation of Dr. Calpito paved way to the assumption of Dr. Meliarazon F. Dulay as Medical Officer IV- COH up to present.

In 2012, additional hospital equipment and a two-storey building hospital ward were provided by DOH through their Health Facility Enhancement Program.

Early this year, Honorable Governor Nestor B. Fongwan through his Provincial Development Fund funded the renovation and improvement of the hospital building which include the construction of new Nutrition and Dietary room (phase 1) and a comfort room for male and female outside the hospital.At the moment, there were 20 permanent staff employees, 3 casual employees, 3 contract of service and 3 agency guards. Also, DMMH is a PhilHealth Accredited Hospital, Baby Friendly Hospital, and a Red Orchid awardee.
