Valenzuela General Hospital, initially known as Valenzuela Emergency Hospital, was established through a local council in 1979 as a 25-bed secondary hospital under LGU supervision and funding. The hospital was originally housed in a renovated municipal hall in Polo, Valenzuela. It was nationalized on January 1985 directly under Region III through PD 811. It was later named Valenzuela District Hospital.
In 1987, through EO 119, it was absorbed by the newly created DOH-NCR under District Health Office No. I. In 1992, through RA 7218, it was upgraded into a 100-bed secondary hospital. In 1998, with the release of additional plantilla of employees including medical staff, VGH became departmentalized into 4 basic medical departments namely: Obstetrics-Gynecology, Surgery, Medicine and Pediatrics.
Eventually on May 1, 1999, it transferred to its new site in Karuhatan, Valenzuela City. It is a four storey concrete building in a 1800 sq. meter of land. It is now licensed as a 100 bed Tertiary-Teaching-Training hospital and is continually in pursuit of excellence. The OB-Gyne and Pediatrics departments are accredited by their respective society.
