Eugene Stafford. The rise of the Baguio Sanatorium heralded the beginning of a long history of what isto become the Baguio General Hospital & Medical Center.The need to have a medical facility that is low cost and accessible was envisioned early on in the citys history,so that as early as 1907, the building phase for the hospital began. When the project started, the vision andobjective was clear cut: to provide high quality yet affordable service for the people of the city and theneighboring towns.

Several other Filipinos then took turns in handling the reins of the hospital.In 1937, with Dr. F. Esquivel as Director and Miss I. Francia as Chief Nurse, the name of the hospital was againchanged to Baguio General Hospital. It was this year when construction of the main hospital building,promised earlier in 1930 by Pres.
