VENANCIA L. MAKABALI, M.D.
October 7, 1918 - September 5, 1972
Founded on August 11, 1957 by its late foundress, the V.L. Makabali Memorial Hospital, Inc. was then known as V.L. Makabali Clinic, a six-bed Maternity Clinic.
A few months later, the clinic housed ten beds with one operating room, one delivery room, ten nursery bassinets, a laboratory, and an X-ray room.
Later, the clinic was made into a family corporation with all the surviving brothers and sisters as incorporators. It was then that the V.L. Makabali Clinic was renamed V.L. Makabali Memorial Hospital, Inc.
