It all began with a dream. In 1958, Dr. Vicente L. Magsino Sr., returned to Lipa after a successful medical stint in the United States. Brimming with passion for a better healthcare, especially for the needy, he started his auspicious career in a modest clinic.



The dream was met with demand. The simple medical outpost grew into the Magsino General Hospital, a two-storey facility with 30 beds and adequate basic services.



More locals, including those from nearby towns, chose MGH. The hospital gained the trust and respect of both patients and professionals, with up-and-coming doctors and nurses opting to join the MGH family.



Indeed, the Magsino General Hospital strengthened its familial roots, figuratively and literally. Most of Dr.Magsino’s children also became doctors and health professionals, and together they dedicated their lives to improving health care services in the community.



On July 23, Mary Mediatrix Medical Center was opened to the public. Named after its patron, Our Lady of Lipa Mary Mediatrix of All Graces, the former Magsino General Hospital increased its bed capacity to 100 and offered advanced diagnostic services to cater to its large patient base.


Early 2000's

Mary Mediatrix Medical Center has become a full-pledged institution with addition of more specialists, services and technologies, bringing a holistic state-of-the-art healthcare closer to the people of Lipa and the surrounding localities.



Showing that the dream never ends, Mary Mediatrix received the ISO 9001:2008 certification, which attests to international quality standards of the hospital, enhancing customer satisfaction.



The hospital added an annex building housing its new Dialysis Center , more patient rooms and a larger emergency room. This symbolizes the relentless commitment of Mary Mediatrix Medical Center to provide healthcare of the highest standards to the people of the region.

The leading medical center in the Southern Tagalog Region providing wide range of services imbued with personalized and compassionate ideals and expertise of the highest standards that are anchored on research and training.
