HistoryEdit

June 1963 has seen the birth of the first ever Medina College which was founded in Ozamiz City by Dr. Rico Macan Medina, Sr. and his wife, Dr. Beatriz Crisostomo Medina. Back then, the college was named the Medina School of Midwifery, which was the first of its kind in the city.

While experiencing continuous development during the post-Marcos era, among the biggest challenges the school has faced is coping up with the demands of modern education. This has led Medina College, Inc. to eventually undergo an expansion program, which resulted to an improved set of physical facilities and establishment of the Medina General Hospital in the same period.

In 2006, the hospital was renovated to accommodate more patients. The hospital has made it to 250 beds as of February 2016 and in October 2017, new patient wards have been officially opened.
