Historical Highlights

Pines City Colleges (PCC) formerly Pines City Doctors' Hospital School of Nursing started its operation in 1969 and the Pines City Doctor's Hospital in 1966.

Reminiscent of its past ‐ PCC had its humble beginning with the inauguration of its hospital, then and still known as the Pines City Doctors' Hospital on August 15, 1966. The establishment of the hospital paved the way for more serious deliberations and determination for the upcoming developmental projects intended by the people behind this. It was very instrumental for an inspired perception of building
what would now be an educational institution, Pines City Colleges.

On August 1969 the "inspired ‐ perception "came into reality with the founding of the School of Nursing. It started with 42 students to boot. With pride, dignity and perseverance over the years, the Pines City Doctors' Hospital School of Nursing produced its very first nurses
with the continuance of more aspirants to the school of nursing.

Further projections expanded. It geared towards the birth of the different departments, namely; the Midwifery/ Health Aide, Optometry,
Liberal Arts / Office Management, Teacher Education and Basic Education.

Challenged by all these expansion and developments, PCC stood against all odds of difficulties and adjustments. Proud to say,
it has weathered all aspects of doubt, adversity, and has risen to what institutional establishment it is today.

Further studies proved all the better for its latest addition; Physical Therapy Department, College of Dentistry and
complete secondary course. Then it was followed by the College of Respiratory Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Tourism and Medical Technology.

With all these proofs of improvement, PCC has blossomed into what it was meant to be. PCC will ceaselessly continue to commit herself towards excellence in education.
