History of Lorma Hospital

by | Jul 12, 2016 |

Lorma Hospital was founded by Dr. & Mrs. Rufino N. Macagba, Sr., both physicians. The name LORMA stands for their family names: LOR-enzana, the maiden name of Dr. Crispina Macagba and MA-cagba.

The hospital began admitting patients on May 12, 1934, auspiciously during celebration of Hospital Day. It started in the four bedroom house of the couple. As patients increased, attracted by the fine medical care and personalized service, more rooms were added. Over the years, many renovations and new constructions have brought about the modern Lorma Medical Center of today.
