The History of GSC

It isn’t every day that an Austrian-trained doctor opts to go back to the previous of his birth to spread his expertise there. Vienna was where Dr. Peregrin P. De Guzman, Sr., EENT, finished his medical degree, making him one of the first foreign-trained medical specialists in Nueva Ecija. Despite the lure of offers to practice medicine in Manila, Dr. De Guzman’s heart lay in Cabanatuan City and in the regions of the north. In his early days, patients from as far as Isabela province flocked to his clinic for care.

In 1973, upon his retirement, along with his business-savvy wife, Catalina Tinio De Guzman, Dr. De Guzman founded the GOOD SAMARITAN COLLEGES (GSC) first as a school of Midwifery with only 90 students at that time. In 1977, the Nursing program that would become this school’s flagship followed.

In compliance with the law then stating that a college of nursing must have its own hospital, the couple set up the Nueva Ecija Good Samaritan General Hospital Inc. (NEGSGHI). Even after the law was abridged, the couple noted that NEGSGH was not only serving the community but has also become a premium training ground for their students. It was in 1978 when the NEGSGH was inaugurated.

The GSC Integrated School was established in School Year 1979 – 1980 in order to answer the need to provide quality primary and secondary education.

The next 16 years saw GSC expanding to include several other courses, such as BS Radiologic Technology (1985), BS Medical Technology (1993), BS Respiratory Therapy (2000), Caregiver course (2001), and Bachelor of Secondary Education and Bachelor of Elementary Education (2002).

In 1998, GSC’s second base hospital, the NEGSGHI in Gapan City, was opened.

Today, celebrating more than forty years in the industry, GSC is consistently striving to live up to its ideals of compassion, competence, and commitment and is continuously improving its programs, facilities, and services to best cater to the needs of its students and the community at large.
