Upon his return to the Philippines, he never faltered as he set out to establish the best hospital and best training university in the country.
He was both a determined and compassionate man. A firm leader who always had a conviction from the start and truly cared about the people. Through this, his dreams were materialized to reality.
Eventually, he led the foundation of what is known today as CebuDoc Group. Throughout most of his life, he built six hospitals namely, Cebu Doctors University Hospital (1972), Mactan Doctors Hospital (1993), North General Hospital (1999), South General Hospital (2004) , San Carlos Doctors Hospital(2002), Ormoc Doctors Hospital (2012) and a medical school, Cebu Doctors University (1975).
CebuDoc Group of Hospitals and Cebu Doctors University was established to provide a compassionate healthcare, quality service, and innovative mind as exemplified by our founder, Dr. Potenciano Larrazabal, Jr.
Despite his administrative obligation, he never neglected his clinical responsibilities. He was an excellent doctor who always empathized with his patients. None mattered to him as long as he was able to aid the people who needed his expertise. Beyond doubt, Dr. Jun is a man with a generous heart for he enriched himself by giving without expecting anything in return.
He once said “Do the best in everything”. Dr. Jun was a man of many roles and all he does well. He touched many lives as a doctor, teacher, giver, a father, and a person himself.
He will always be “Dr.Jun”- a simple man who greatly inspired us to be committed with our dreams and put our heart in whatever that we do. We will forever nurture the countless relationships he built, the values and knowledge he imparted, and the legacies he left to continue to live on.
Today we remember him on his first death anniversary but forever he will remain in our hearts.
