MOUNT CARMEL DIOCESAN GENERAL HOSPITAL was founded on July 27, 1959 by Bishop Alfredo Ma. Obviar under the name 'Clinic of Mount Carmel' together with Dr. Milagros Correa, a prominent physician in Lucena City. The site chosen for it was the old Lucena Catholic Cemetery. Initial funding for the clinic reportedly came from the personal donations of both founders. The priests of the diocese gave their monthly financial contribution to support the needs of the clinic. It started operation on August 1st of the same year as a Maternity and Children's Clinic with only sixteen (16) beds.
