The humble beginnings of the N.L. Villa Memorial Hospital was initiated by Dr. Nemesio K. Villa, Jr., the youngest son of the late Dr. Villa, Sr. While in the USA, back in 1965, definite plans were already taking shape. Medical equipments were slowly being purchased. His wife, Dr. Norma A. Villa helped and supported her husband’s vision and in 1968, the family went home to the Philippines armed with every minor and major details of the hospital plans where they would plunge into a lifetime endeavor of fulfilling his late father’s dream.
May 31, 1969 saw the birth of the N.L. Villa Memorial Hospital. Phase 1 of the projected medical center was fulfilled and the memory of Dr. Villa, Sr. would live in the institution and his children to whom he left the legacy of service of people through the medical profession.
The institution, through time, adequately served the medical needs of the people of Batangas. It grew by leaps and bounds and finally, on April 12, 1994, the hospital celebrated its Silver Anniversary, marking not just a milestone but the dawn of a new era.
The institution, now a Medical Center, carries state-of-the-art equipments and world class medical practitioners. It has sustained its dynamic growth due to the competence, skills and service oriented ideal of its staff. Despite its tremendous growth, the hospital has maintained its “Open Hospital Policy” ensuring patients continuity of care of their physicians.
Greater and better things are happening and as we expect the opening of the third phase of our hospital, we shall be able to reach out to more patients with more and better facilities. This move shall definitely put to rest what once was tagged as provincial. We are definitely a Medical Center par excellence with a reasonably priced laboratory, diagnostic procedures and other services. Further, with the establishment of the N.L. Villa Memorial Hospital Foundation, medical care is more accessible and affordable edifying the vision of: “serving people through the medical profession”
