The hospital then began its rich history through Executive Order No. 35 by then Civil Governor of the Philippines Hon. Luke E. Wright, issued on August 22, 1904, declaring Culion Island as a Leper Colony. Hence, Act No. 1711 of the Philippine Commission was mandated to order compulsory segregation and isolation of people afflicted with leprosy in Culion. Its services commenced upon the arrival of the first batch of patients from Cebu on May 27, 1906.
It is the only hospital in the Philippines that gave rise to a municipality by virtue of RA 7193. Although its general hospital services began in 1994, it was on November 19, 2009 that it became a full-pledged general hospital by virtue of RA 9790 or Culion Sanitarium Conversion and Upgrading Act of 2009.
Currently bearing the official name of Culion Sanitarium and General Hospital, it now offers diversified services through both general and specialty care.
