Gov Gerry Boy sponsored a free major surgical mission in celebration of his birthday last August 7. In collaboration with St Luke’s SagipBayan Foundation, the 4-day mission served a total of 124 patients at the Biliran Provincial Hospital (39 major, 49 minor & 36 dental operation).
Gov espina expressed his gratitude to the surgical team from St Luke’s Hospital, headed by Dr. Sammy Dee Tanzo, for coming to Biliran and giving their surgical expertise for free to the Biliranons. The governor is optimistic that more of the same much needed free health services will be made available to the people of Biliran, with the assistance from leading hospitals in the NCR.
Common surgical operations at private hospital will cost the patient from 60-100 thou at the cheapest, more if its a major operation.
