Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center
The Chinese General Hospital stands unique among the hospitals of the country. It is one of the oldest hospitals of the land, being founded in the Spanish times. It was founded purely from charity donations of well-meaning Chinese immigrants. And it has steadily grown in excellence, fame and service in its 113 years of existence. One key to the hospital’s success is the backing of a strong association – the Philippine Chinese Charitable Association or PCCA. The PCCA was founded much earlier, in 1878, when a group of Chinese immigrants established the “Communidad de Chinos” or Chinese Community. Now in the new millenium, the hospital continues to expand its breadth of charity work to particularly assist the families of policemen, firemen, and others. For more than a century, the Chinese General Hospital, through its directors, has never wavered on its noble mission: to provide help and humanitarian service to the members of the society who are in most need of them.
