Wesleyan University-Philippines Hospital
The idea for a Wesleyan University-Philippines general hospital was conceived in 2002 to support the clinical needs of the College of Nursing and Allied Medical Services and in preparation for the establishment of a College of Medicine.
The hospital was first launched as a diagnostic center on February 22, 2006. A year later. It was upgraded into a highly specialized cardio-vascular center dubbed as the “Heart Center of the North”. Surgeons and support specialists came from the Heart Center of the Philippines.
With no home-grown cardio-vascular surgeons and support specialists, the number of patients admitted was not enough to support the operation of the hospital. The University had to subsidize it financially.
A change of University administration in April 2009 prompted the Board of Trustees to realign the original concept of the hospital – that of offering all specialty services open to local practitioners while maintaining its cardiovascular capabilities. The name of the hospital was changed to Wesleyan University Medical Center with the subsidy from the University discontinued. The hospital slowly gained recognition from the community though its operation was limited to the existing facilities of its cardio-vascular specialty.:
