Naval, Biliran – Governor Gerardo “Gerry Boy” Espina Jr. of this province conveys the Biliranon’s gratitude to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) for approving his request for financial assistance for the purchase of medical equipments.
The PCSO approved a financial grant amounting to P15.870 million for the purchase of various medical equipments for the Biliran Provincial Hospital (BPH). Formerly a small district hospital under the DOH before its devolution to the provincial government, the facility was improved by former Governor Rogelio Espina (now representative of the Lone District of Biliran) thru LGU-initiated loans and grants.
Governor Gerry Boy continued the efforts of rebuilding the provincial hospital, and was thankful to the support of PCSO under the management of Chairman Margarita Juico and GM Jose Ferdinand Rojas II. It is the only hospital serving the residents of Biliran province and those coming from the neighboring towns in Leyte.
Gov. Espina said that the PCSO’s continued support to the BPH in terms of medical equipments, ambulances and endowment funds have saved countless lives in the province.
