     In 2011, several doctors envisioned to establish a multi-specialty clinic that would cater to almost all types of patients requiring various

services including consultation, diagnostic examinations and other special services. The plan was to create a comprehensive and
unified health care service that will serve as a one-stop-shop clinic that will be feasible in the current economic and geographical scenario of the province then. Inspired by the vast experiences in their training years, both locally and internationally, and empowered by the knowledge and expertise in their own
specialties and sub-specialties, these doctors courageously committed themselves to the task. Thus, Metro Health Multispecialty Clinic and Laboratory officially opened in June 28, 2011. The word Metro Health was coined from the word Metro which means city and health. Thus, Metro Health is simply defined as health services in the heart of Sorsogon City accessible to all the different towns of the province. The ambitious tagline was “towards excellent care”.

      At the outset, the clinic offered consultations with different specialties that included family medicine, internal medicine, gastroenterology, pulmonology, nephrology, dermatology, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, general surgery, orthopedics, general dentistry, orthodontics and
physical therapy. To complement the services, an up-to-date laboratory was put in place. At that time, the response of the nearby communities
from different towns was overwhelming. In less than a year the clinic had to expand in order to respond to the increasing patients’
needs for consultations and procedures. The unprecedented expansion temporarily resolved the daily congestion inside the clinic caused by
the great influx of patients.

      In 2015, with the vibrant leadership of the board of directors and the glaring necessity for a bigger place, a new building was created and later on attached to the existing one. This time, hemodialysis and radiology were added to the roster of services.

      Having realized the growing patronage of the community and the increasing demand for better health facility, Metro Health decided to put up a hospital to serve patients requiring inpatient services. Metro Health Specialists Hospital was conceived after months of comprehensive review and thorough brainstorming. The hospital’s initial ground breaking was held on July 21, 2017.

       Metro Health Specialists Hospital is built for all patients regardless of age, ancestry, color, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender expression, race, religion, and socioeconomic status. The main goal is to provide excellent health care to every patient within the scope of all available expertise and services. Metro Health shall continue to innovate itself to serve more patients as it responds to the evolving needs of the public. The hospital shall strive to bring a totally new experience in the delivery of quality and affordable health care with the patient at the core of every endeavor.

    Metro Health Specialists Hospital, Inc. (MHSHI) is a Level 2 hospital compliant to the Department of Health’s (DOH) standards for hospital facilities. Being so, it has the required five (5) medical departments including Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgery, Anesthesia and Obstetrics and Gynecology.
