The Baguio General Hospital & Medical Center is a Medical and Training centre with attached medical ancillary services and a retained hospital under the Philippino national government. The hospital is mainly a general hospital, with elements of general practice and it serves a large population as the hospital not only caters for people living in the region but also those in neighbouring provinces.
The hospital began operating in 1902 and is the largest government funded tertiary hospital in the Cordillera Autonomous Region, situated in the centre of Baguio City, some 250 kilometres from Manilla. The hospital received heritage status in 2010. As a tertiary facility, the hospital provides a wide range of services including intensive care, nephrology, laboratory services and a maternity department.
In 1992 Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center was the first in Asia to be awarded the Mother & Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (MBFHI) by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). In addition, the breastfeeding programme of the hospital became the prototype of UNICEF.
