Statement on the recent preventive suspension of its executive officers and personnel issued by the Office of the Ombudsman

34

PhilHealth Management acknowledges the recent Order of the Office of the Ombudsman putting several of its Executive Officers and Personnel under preventive suspension for grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty, and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service. We shall abide and implement the suspension Orders accordingly.

PhilHealth Management maintains the constitutional rights of its Officers and Personnel on its presumption of innocence until proven otherwise. We trust that the Honorable Office of the Ombudsman will accordingly observe objectivity, justice and fairness, and allow our concerned Officers and personnel the due process to properly explain and defend themselves.


PhilHealth assures its members and stakeholders that its mandate and services shall continuously proceed unhampered notwithstanding the challenges that it is currently facing as part of the necessary reforms needed to be undertaken to further improve its services toward the implementation of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for all Filipinos.
