From-Infirmary-to-USM-Hospital thumbsWhat was once just a clinic of Mindanao Institute of Technology (MIT) now evolved into a Level 1 Hospital of University of Southern Mindanao (USM). For forty years, the USM Hospital has been serving not only the students, employees, and their dependents but patients from different municipalities in the province.

In its early years, the MIT Clinic catered only to the health needs of students on a limited outpatient basis until it evolved into a University Hospital on February 13, 1979 with Dr. Hernando C. Garcia as the Medical Director.

In 2007, the hospital increased its bed capacity from 30 to 100 beds through a subsidized loan of 21 million. In 2010, it became a 60-bed capacity hospital after being accredited by Department of Health (DOH) and PhilHealth.
