Breaking News: University of the Philippines PGH Executive Director Possibly Ousted in February 25 BOR meeting

By Chanda Shahani

The elimination this morning by the University of the Philippines Board of Regents (BOR) of Student Regent Charisse Banez's eligibility to vote as a Student Regent has consequentially impacted the selection of the new U.P. Philippine General Hospital (PGH) Executive Director last December 18, 2009 and has resulted in a realignment of votes within the BOR leading to the possible removal of Dr. Jose Gonzales as PGH Executive Director and the installation of Dr. Enrique Domingo, of Sentro Oftalmologico, as the new Executive Director of PGH, sources told the Diliman Diary today.

The Office of the Secretary of the University would neither confirm nor deny that Dr. Domingo was now the OIC-designate of PGH in view of standard procedure prohibiting them from releasing BOR decisions except in written form that have already been approved, and these were not yet available as of press time.

The Diliman Diary continues to cover this story, and will provide updates as soon as they are made available.
