Thumbs up for the hospital for doing the right thing! :)
SINGAPORE: Gleneagles Hospital will cover the bill for one of their security guards who was unable to pay for his medical costs after he had a heart attack and had to be placed in the hospital's intensive care unit (ICU).
In an update on a Give.Asia page set up to raise funds for the security guard Mr Thomas Lukose, his brother on Thursday (Oct 12) thanked donors for coming forward but said that the hospital had agreed to cover Mr Lukose's bills.
"We’ve just received good news from Gleneagles Hospital CEO, Mr Lee Suen Ming, that they will be covering the medical bills for my brother Thomas, and we need not raise funds for his medical fees anymore," said Mr Daniel Lukose.
Mr Phua Tien Beng, the acting chief executive officer for the Singapore operations division of Parkway Pantai, which operates Gleneagles Hospital, said that after reviewing the case, the hospital decided to cover Mr Lukose's outstanding medical bills because "it is the right thing to do".
