About Capitol Medical Center

Capitol Medical Center has maintained its tradition of excellence in quality healthcare. Competent doctors and dedicated staff have put their heart and soul in caring for the patients thereby making CMC one of the country’s top medical center.

CMC has endeavored to make itself synonymous with excellence in total quality healthcare delivery. Our relentless pursuit towards its achievement has always been fraught with challenges and we are thankful that we have met them with flying colors. Constant development in medical techniques and technology along with the seemingly corresponding evolution of diseases spurs us on to improve our facilities and the capabilities of the medical practitioners and all other health providers.

Capitol Medical Center came into the Philippine health community at the dawn of the revolutionary seventies – the martial law years. It was founded by Dr. Thelma N. Clemente, Mr. Luis C. Clemente and a handful of her contemporaries in the medical profession. The center was built and inaugurated on March 19, 1970.

The institution’s progress over the years can be clearly seen from its rapid extension. From an initial 100 patient bed capacity in 1970, it has expanded to 300 beds after years of operation. An outstanding feature of the institution’s operation is the continuing sustained program for the upgrading of its facilities to keep abreast with the latest developments in medical and health technology, thereby allowing the highest degree of sophistication and modernity in its services.
