With the memorandum of agreement signed last June 29, 2010, the partnership between the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres and Xavier University was formalized. With the formalization, Maria Reyna Hospital will now be called Xavier Maria Reyna University Hospital and will be jointly owned by the three signatories.
Xavier Maria Reyna University Hospital will become the base hospital for the School of Medicine and the College of Nursing. It will provide residency training programs for the disciplines of internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics – gynecology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology and family medicine.
Future plans for the hospital include the construction of a Medical Arts Building which will house specialty centers for the heart, lung, kidney and others. This will provide important specialty health services and bring these closer to the local population. The hospital will thus be a distinct institution not only in terms of providing advanced medical services and technology but more importantly, it will deliver quality medical care to the people of Cagayan de Oro City and Northern Mindanao in ways that are inspired and deeply rooted in Christian values.
