St. Theodore's Hospital

I must have spent at least 5 stays in this hospital, with the last time when I was a teenager suffering from measles. There's one particular room that I was always assigned to, and it is normally shared by 2 or 3 people. I remember how the janitor used to clean the floors using a long rod attached to a cement beam that had multiple coconut husks. The hospital, which belongs to the Mission Compound is located at the town center.

I'm happy to see that the hospital has been recently renovated and repainted. Before that happened, it was looking rundown. Each time I passed during the evening, there was one window that always gave me the creeps. It seemed as if there was always someone looking out from that window.

During peak tourist periods (Holy Week, or week between Christmas and New Year) when the hotels /inns are fully booked, the hospital along with St. Mary's School open their doors to tourists.

There is a new program helping people with cancer and chronic disease that is the talk of the town.
