Historical Background

In 1927,the late Mother Saint Xavier Versmeerch, Provincial Superior of the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres thought of having a summer house in Baguio. This present lot was bought from the Bishop of Nueva Segovia to which the Diocese of Baguio belongs. However, seeing the needs of the people of Baguio, this summer house was converted to a 40 bed hospital and was blessed on October 1, 1931.

This vacation house was built on the piece of land that the Congregation in the Philippines bought from the then Apostolic Vicariate of the Mountain Province, which is still the present site of NDCH. This institution was then called Notre Dame de Lourdes Hospital (NDLH).

The Second World War (WW II) brought indescribable destruction to the City of Baguio and its environs. When the United States of America sought to put an end to the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, Baguio was not spared from the so called “carpet bombing”. Almost all the city was razed to the ground without regard of hospitals and other health-care facilities including NDLH.

To continue their mission of caring for the sick, the Sisters joined the people in their dangerous journey on foot, to evacuate to Longlong, Benguet and, subsequently on a 2-day hike over mountains and hills, crossing the war frontline, to the already liberated town of Tubao, La Union.

From the ravages of NDLH rose another 40-bed capacity hospital with the SPC Sisters ever faithful to their commitment of evangelizing through health-care. In 1958, the people of Baguio and its neighboring provinces saw the establishment of a bigger and better equipped hospital.

The people of Baguio are no strangers to typhoons, storms, and accompanying landslides but the super-earthquake of 1990, with Baguio as its epicenter, was monstrously terrifying to all: lives lost by the thousands, property demolished, businesses bankrupt, industries ruined and people impoverished! And, Notre Dame de Lourdes Hospital, built about 50 years before, straddling a fault line was shaken to its depths and crashed in the hands of nature!! It was heartbreaking not only for the Sisters and their partners in mission: doctors, nurses and the rest of the staff, but also for the patrons of the hospital and for the people of Baguio

But, God, our Father, is never outdone in generosity and compassion. In the year 2003, this generosity and compassion of the Father came in the form a renewed health-care institution, officially inaugurated on September 27, 2003, then known as Notre Dame Diagnostic and Pastoral Center!! Not long after this, the SPC Sisters opted to run this Center as a hospital and was fully operational in 2005 under the tutelage of Our Lady of Chartres, Patroness of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres. Thus was born: NOTRE DAME DE CHARTRES HOSPITAL.

Notre Dame de Chartres Hospital continued to develop and flourish, not just as an institution but, especially as its care givers sought ways to develop themselves towards a better fulfillment of their mission in the care of the sick. In the same year of its initial ventures as a 25-bed capacity hospital, NDCH was recognized as a Tertiary level hospital.

In the year 2006 to 2009 NDCH had increased its capacity to 50 beds. It became one of Baguio's trend-setters in the medical field. Between the years mentioned above, NDCH acquired a CT-Scan machine. It also performed with flying colors, the first Open Heart Surgery in Baguio and Northern Luzon, made possible and performed by super specialist surgeons in Notre's care. And, in 2010, NDCH once again expanded its services by initiating and opening a Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at the hospital's new annex building.

In 2011, NDCH once again opened its doors, this time, to its 82-bed facility, the biggest, so far, and in 2012 to its state-of-the art facilities: operating rooms, delivery rooms and a neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) while seriously toying with the idea of acquiring an MRI machine.

Today, NDCH has evolved into the Cardiac Center of the North, with its 104-beds, ministering and caring for the sick needing diagnostic and medical assistance. And, as NDCH envisions the delivery of quality health-care, it has formatted several development programs for the growth of its care givers of every designation.

NDCH is moving towards quality health-care, not just by redefining the meaning of care for the people, but especially by sharing with them God's compassionate and healing love.
