The weight of a name: Yong Larrazabal carries on a family legacy

When you come from a family with a prestigious legacy, the weight of that name can be heavy.

For Dr. Potenciano “Yong” Larrazabal III, being the third to carry on his family name comes with great responsibility.

His father, Dr. Potenciano Larrazabal II, is a well-known doctor and hospital owner in Cebu, and he wanted his children to continue his legacy.

To prepare his son, the younger Larrazabal was advised to specialize in medicine, establish his own practice, and work hard to build his own reputation.

He was also required to become a member of the board for all the hospitals they manage.

By attending meetings and working closely with his father, Yong learned how to manage people, navigate operations problems, and deal with rates.

But when his father passed away suddenly in 2017, the younger Larrazabal was faced with new challenges. He became sick several times due to the stress of managing everything alone.

However, with a solid team that he was able to build, he was able to work through the difficulties and continue the family legacy.

Now, he has a corporate team to support him, allowing him to focus on other important aspects of his life, such as his family and his health.

With a new hospital in Bohol and plans to open another one soon, Yong is proud to continue his family’s legacy of providing quality healthcare to Filipinos.
