Historical Background

     In 1977, the University Physician’s Foundation Inc., was organized to establish a medical school in Dasmariñas, Cavite, in support of the then government’s policy of dispersing educational facilities outside the capital city and encouraging the establishment of medical schools in various regions of the country to ensure the delivery of quality health care in the regions.

     In 1980, the Foundation acquired 1.2 hectares of additional property and construction was started for a 100-bed hospital. This 4-storey hospital, the University Medical Center, was inaugurated in 1982. In June 1987, the ownership and management of the Emilio Aguinaldo College of Medicine and the University Medical Center were acquired by the De La Salle University. The College of Medicine was renamed the De La Salle University-Emilio Aguinaldo College of Medicine and the hospital the De La Salle University Medical Center.

     Since the De La Salle Brothers assumed ownership of both the hospital and the college, both have steadily grown. In 1990, the De La Salle University Medical Center continued its expansion with the inauguration of the WU Building.

     The De La Salle University Medical Center continued to grow with the opening of the 10-storey Teodorica Favis Vda. De Rivero Hall in 1997 and of the one-storey Jose Sotto Tantiansu Center in 1998.

     In October 1999, the De La Salle University Medical Center gained the distinction of being the first hospital in the Philippines to have been awarded an ISO 9001 Certification by the TUV–Rheinland. In 2005, DLSUMC received another ISO Certification on Environment Management System, the ISO 14001.

     De La Salle University Medical Center remains steadfast to its mission of proclaiming God’s love through excellent and affordable holistic health care services.
