The modernization project, will result to additional 1,000 combined beds for CVMC, BMC, and CRMC.
Aside from CVMC (Northern Luzon), BMC (Southern Luzon) and CRMC (Mindanao) other DOH hospitals are also lined up for similar modernization projects in the coming years with the end objective of improving hospital  facilities to address the health needs of the entire nation.

The upgrading of these hospitals compliments the current improvement of rural health units 3,074 and barangay health stations 16,038 which are the current implementers of the current primary care program of the Department of Health. The presence of these regional medical centers will ably serve as the end referral centers for the rural health units and the barangay health stations. The modernization of these hospitals will provide quality health care in the provinces comparable to modern medical centers in urban areas. (VerGarciaBlogs)
