The Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, a stone’s throw away from the Philippine General Hospital, was founded in 1920, starting out as a 6-bed “Maternity House.”  It is currently under the administration of the Department of Health (DOH), and now has a 700-bed capacity. It has been operating the only School of Midwifery of the DOH.  It has gained international recognition for maternal and child health services and family planning by the WHO (recognized as a collaborating center), UNICEF, USAID, UNFPA Family Health International, Georgetown University and University of Oxford.
