 old vgh buildingValenzuela 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.
