Perpetual Succour Hospital
In 1936, Sr. Teresa de Jesus Fernandez and Sr. Carmen Artiaga, along with one young professed nun/nurse, answered the plea of Msgr. Gabriel Reyes to establish a hospital, which was then called the Holy Child Hospital. A dilapidated wooden house located near the Archbishop’s residence was transformed into a hospice, where the nuns cared for their patients who paid in kind with vegetables, fruits and livestock.
The Holy Child Hospital was burned to the ground during the war and in 1941. The patients were evacuated to Danao and then to Iloilo City. In 1950, Msgr. Julio Rosales, then Archbishop of Cebu, requested the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres to return to Cebu. The hospital was reborn and renamed Perpetual Succour Hospital with the assistance of Manuel de Veyra, M.D., who served as the establishment’s Medical Director for 7 years.
In 1959, Msgr. Esteban Montecillo blessed the fully constructed 100-bed capacity hospital. At present, Perpetual Succour is now a 240-bed capacity hospital. It also has a 7-storey SPC Medical Specialty Center building, which houses the Cebu Cancer Institute, the Advanced RehabCare and Sports Medicine Centre, Nuclear Medicine, the ACES & PSH Eye Referral Center with an Adjoining Eye Surgicenter, the Varicose Center, Dental Center, Doctors Clinics, and many others.
