The Medical Center’s Journey Begins
Fe Del Mundo Medical Center’s (FDMMC) journey began when it was first established in Banawe St., Quezon City, as Children’s Memorial Hospital (CMH) by distinguished Filipino scientist and pediatrician, Dr. Fe Del Mundo. CMH had a 107-bed capacity and a wide-array of services mainly for pediatric patients.
Aside from offering various specialized treatments, surgical procedures, and intensive care management, it was also a training hospital which aims to develop the skills of medical professionals and staff. This led the hospital to earn the title of a level IV medical facility as classified by the Philippines’ Department of Health.
A Children’s Memorial Hospital
In its succeeding years after its establishment, Dr. Fe Del Mundo bestowed Children’s Memorial Hospital to a non-stock, non-profit institution named Dr. Fe Del Mundo Medical Center Foundation Phils., Inc.
The foundation was dedicated to the founder herself and her advocacy to provide better medical care to the society. Dr. Fe Del Mundo’s heart leaned toward improving the health of every Filipino family most especially the sick children.
