History & Overview

It all started when Jose C. Olivares, a chemistry professor by vocation but with strong entrepreneurial spirit, and his son-in-law, Dr. Vicente M. Santos, an obstetrician, founded the Our Lady of Fatima Hospital in 1967.

It soon became the primary provider of medical services to the residents of Valenzuela and its neighboring towns. With a vision of creating medical complex that will be a training center for competent health care providers, Mr. Olivares created the Fatima Medical Science Foundation Inc., and initially established the Our Lady of Fatima College of Nursing in 1973.

Fatima University Medical Center (FUMC) has been at the forefront of medical and hospital service in northern Metro Manila for the past 4 decades.  From a mere 20-bed general hospital, we’ve grown to a 150-bed capacity hospital with the latest facilities, continually serving and providing tertiary healthcare to the residents of Valenzuela, Malabon, Caloocan, Navotas and even Bulacan.

With the new and latest technology, we at FUMC are able to provide a range of alternative treatments and best possible care for the immediate and excellent recovery of our patients. FUMC believes in empowering our patients with the right information for them to attain a healthy and active life.
