St. Jude General Hospital and Medical Center
St. Jude General Hospital and Medical Center (SJHMC), a non sectarian institution, was established in honor of St Jude depicting the true Christian spirit with the end in view of augmenting the nursing and health needs of Filipinos in consonance with the programs of the Department of Health. It is located at Dimasalang St. cor Don Quijote St., Sampaloc, Manila.
It started in 1950 as St. Jude Clinic and Maternity with a 12 bed capacity meant to cater to medical and maternity cases. Faced with the growing community health needs and the rapid advances in medical science, the founders, Dr. Ramon D. Atienza, Jr. And his wife Dr. Felicidad Calip-Atienza, built a two storey concrete hospital edifice with 50 bed capacity.
With the passing of the years, the hospital expanded from the two storey to a five storey hospital building. Thus, the hospital became a general training ground and a teaching institution in 1968. As such, complete facilities are provided for the comfort and convenience of both the patients and the hospital staff. The building was inaugurated on the Feast of St. Jude on October 28, 1968.
Today, the St. Jude General Hospital may be counted among the modern and adequately equipped in the country. Above all, St. Jude Hospital and Medical Center provides "Expert Care from Caring Experts". The hospital expansion is a reflection of the dedication and foresight of a husband and wife team.
