ABOUT MEDICAL CENTER
The Far Eastern University - Institute of Medicine or FEU-NRMF was born from a vision of Dr. Nicanor Reyes, Sr. In October 22, 1955, the FEU Hospital opened its doors as a charitable institution and provided actual hospital training for students in medicine. The Hospital Committee was composed of Dr. Lauro Panganiban, Chair, Nicanor Reyes Jr., Angel Palanca, and Dr. Ricardo Alfonso who later became the first Hospital Director.
In 1970, the Institute of Medicine, School of Medical Technology, FEU Hospital and the Student Health Service Clinic were converted into a non-stock, non-profit educational foundation and is now known as the FEU Dr. Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation.
Through the years, it has contributed some of the finest names in the health care field: 6 POGS Presidents, 1 PCP President, 1 PPS President, 4 PCS Presidents, 1 PAFP President, 1 PCR President, 1 PSA President & 1 PSP President. These do not include medical staff who became Secretaries of Health, Philippine Medical Association Presidents, President of the World Medical Association, Association of Philippine Medical Colleges etc.. In 1986, the Philippine Board of Medical Education, DECS, and the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges gave the Institute the highest level of accreditation, and awarded it as a Center of Excellence in Medical Education. In 1993, the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) granted to FEU-NMRF the distinction of Center of Excellence in Research.

In December 22, 1996, Dr. Josephine C. Reyes, FEU-NRMF Chairman and former FEU President, presided over the groundbreaking of the new P500 million modern medical school and hospital. Also present were some members of the Board of Trustees which included the late Dr. Ricardo Alfonso, Hector Del Rosario, and Nicanor Reyes III; hospital officials like Dr. Lilia Luna, then Medical director, and Dr. Flordeliza Baltazar, then Dean of the Institute of Medicine.
From a 100-bed capacity hospital in N. Reyes St. Sampaloc, Manila, it now operates with 198 pay beds, and 102 service beds. In 2010, it was granted Center of Excellence by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation during the time of Dr. Reynaldo De Vega as Medical Director.
On September 30, 2011, Mr. Nicanor C. Reyes III, was installed as the new Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Continuing on with the legacy of the founders, Chairman Reyes' vision of bringing FEU-NRMF to new heights was evident with the groundbreaking ceremony for a construction of a 20-storey tower on July 12, 2012. This will answer the growing need for additional lecture halls, library extension and other facilities for its training activities. The Medical Center also underwent renovations to give room for additional services addressing the leading causes of morbidity & mortality : Wellness Section in March 2013; Pain, Cancer & Palliative Care Section in May 2013, Stroke Unit in August 2013, TB DOTS Clinic & Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory in January 2015. Outpatient Clinic spaces within the hospital were also provided for active consultants.
Organizational change was also instituted in the Foundation. Atty. Antonio H. Abad was appointed President of FEU-NRMF in April 2013. Under him is the Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Polly Chua-Chan and the Deans of the eight program offerings, namely, Medicine, Medical Laboratory Science, Physical Therapy, Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Radiologic Technology, Nutrition & Dietetics & Pharmacy. In September 2015, Mr. Juan Enrique Reyes was appointed Chief Operating Officer to oversee the development of the financial management strategies and contribute to the development of the Foundation's strategic goals.
