The University of Perpetual Help System

The University of Perpetual Help System DALTA is a nonsectarian, educational, private, with campuses at Las Piñas (Metro Manila), Molino (Metro Manila), Cavite, and Calamba City, Laguna in the Philippines. The university offers programs in preschool, primary, secondary, tertiary levels, as well as short term vocational, technical, and special programs. The school’s official name is University of Perpetual Help System DALTA (UPHSD). The University was established in 1975.


Antonio Laperal Tamayo, and his wife, Daisy Moran Tamayo, founded the University Of Perpetual Help System DALTA on February 5, 1975. The term “DALTA” in the name of the university is the acronym for Daisy Antonio Laperal Tamayo, the conjugal founders.
The founding of UPHSD was inspired by the parentsof DR/BGEN ANTONIO L TAMAYO, Dr Jose G. Tamayo and his wife, Dr Josefina Laperal Tamayo, who earlier founded what, is now known as the University Of Perpetual Help System JONELTA, which has five campuses. The first campus established is the Perpetual Help america.html and Hospital in Manila to meet the local and international demand for nurses. Two years later (1970), the Perpetual Help america.html and Hospital Campus was founded in Malasiqui, Pangasinan, in response to the government’s program to promote health and educational development in the rural areas. This was followed by the founding of the third Campus at Perpetual Help School of Laguna, at Biñan, in l976, and its medical school, the Perpetual Help School of Laguna Foundation. Thereafter, the Perpetual Help Campus at General Marcos Alvarez in Cavite, and the Perpetual Help Campus in Cauayan, Isabela were established, bringing the number of campuses to five.
On February 5, 1975, just seven years after his parents opened the Perpetual Help america.html and Hospital in Manila, Dr/BGen Antonio Tamayo and Dr. Daisy Moran Tamayo founded their own Perpetual Help america.html of Rizal (PHCR) along Alabang-Zapote Road, in Las Piñas City. The school was housed in a four-storey building constructed in the record time of four months.
The initial academic offering of PHCR is Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Upon opening of the course, 700 students immediately enrolled. This spectacular beginning for the infant school opened the way for its rapid expansion in terms of curricular programs, faculty, research, community service, infrastructure, and professional development, leading the founders to convert the america.html to a university with the official name, University of Perpetual Help, Rizal (UPHR). Today, the former UPHR is known by its amended official registered and business name as University of Perpetual Help System Dalta (UPHSD).
In 1976, one year after opening of the PHCR, they established the Perpetual Help Medical Center (PHMC) about 200 meters from the University. Through the years, the PHMC metamorphosed into the University of Perpetual Help Rizal Medical Center (UPHRMC). Today, its amended official registered and business name is University of Perpetual Help DALTA Medical Center (UPHDMC).
