From WikiPilipinas: The Hip 'n Free Philippine Encyclopedia
Amang Rodriguez Medical Center (ARMC) is a 150-bed medical center located in Marikina City. It caters to residents of Marikina, Antipolo, part of Pasig and the municipalities of Cainta, San Mateo and Rodriguez in Rizal. It also serves as a research and training venue for health personnel in their chosen field of expertise.
The hospital was initially conceived in the minds of then Rizal Governor Isidro S. Rodriguez and the late Mayor Osmundo de Guzman of Marikina, who dreamed of a community hospital that would provide the necessary health services for the residents of Marikina and its adjoining towns. This gained the support of Senator Jovito R. Salonga who then sponsored a bill which was approved by Congress as Republic Act 3662 of 1964 which mandated the creation, establishment, operation and maintenance of Eulogio Rodriguez Sr. Memorial Hospital.
Construction started in 1965 and by May 15, 1966, it was blessed and inaugurated as the "Marikina Emergency Hospital" with an authorized bed capacity of 25. It was opened the following day to dispensary patients with Dr. Jose Paz, Senior Resident Physician from Morong Emergency Hospital, as Officer-in-Charge.
Presently known as the Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center, the hospital offers wide-range of services on pediatrics, ophtalmology, ob-gyne, medicine and surgery. The building is located at Sumulong Highway, Marikina City with telephone number 941-58-54/948-12-63/948-05-95 connecting all departments,fax number 941-3441. Their website is www.doh.gov.ph/armmc
