Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital, formerly known as Albay Provincial Hospital was the first government hospital to be established in the Bicol Region. Originally built in 1918 as 10-bed US army station hospital, it was eventually donated to the Provincial Government of Albay and since then, it has gradually increased in structure, capacity and complexity.
The oldest known structure of the hospital is the present-day administration building, which was first constructed in 1927 and inaugurated on May 27, 1928 as the Albay Provincial Hospital. The Gabaldon-type building with its distinctive high ceilings and large windows was actually bombed during the war in 1944, completely restored by 1950, but destroyed again in 1952 by typhoon Trix, one of the deadliest typhoons in the history of the Philippines. After it sustained heavy damage in 2006 due to typhoon Reming, it was repaired, renovated and reconstructed in 2008, and has kept its look since then.
Health is a basic human right. The Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital, a Tertiary Hospital and Center of Wellness, is an effective and efficient instrument in the promotive, preventive curative and rehabilitative aspects of health care dynamically involved in advocacy, education, research and extension.
We envision the hospital as a humane medical center providing quality and responsive health care.
