Exorbitant surgery
fees at NOPH hit

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

A member of the provincial board questioned what he calls the excessive and exorbitant rates of private doctors performing surgeries in government hospitals like the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital.

Board Member Rodrigo Alanano (Neg. Or., 3rd District) said the concern is based on his experience because poor patients usually approach them for financial assistance.

Even when he was mayor of Dauin, Alanano said this problem was already prevailing.
