When the author grew up in the former town of Sorsogon, as far as he can remember, there were only three (hospitals) – Sorsogon Provincial Hospital (originally located at the current Sorsogon Museum), Sts. Peter and Paul Hospital (or Pepau for the locales) and the town’s hospital on Barangay Roro. From what the author knows the third hospital was supported by the German government.
Sordoc, as far as the author can remember, is the second hospital in the former Sorsogon town. It was originally located along Magsaysay Street (the original building is now a memorial home). The original place may not have been enough since the current location is more than three times bigger.
The original structure was only 2-story building. But this year, it added another one.
Note: East district of the city is hosting to one private hospital just beside the old church at poblacion.
