On June 18, 1966, the then Speaker Daniel Z. Romualdez Memorial City Hospital was established as a general hospital in Tacloban with service capacity of one hundred beds.[1] On July 22, 1972, the Speaker Daniel Z. Romualdez Memorial City Hospital became the surviving entity when the Leyte Provincial Hospital and the Tacloban City Hospital were merged with it.[2] During this time, its capacity was increased to two hundred fifty beds.[3] Then, it was renamed as Tacloban City Medical Center on November 12, 1986 [4] and into its current name on March 24, 1992.[5] In 2009, it was authorized by the national law to expand into a five hundred bed hospital.[6]
