Gov. Edgar Chatto was discharged from the St. Lukes Medical Center in Quezon City on Saturday morning.

He was advised to “slow down” in his daily activities.


Chatto, 58, was airlifted to Metro Manila on Sunday last week after experiencing an episode of palpitations after a “hectic” schedule a day before.

On Saturday last week, he woke up earlier than usual to grace the 25th sacerdotal anniversary of Bishop Abet Uy who officiated a thanksgiving mass at the St. Joseph’s Cathedral at 6:15 a.m.

After breakfast at the Bishop’s Palace, he proceeded to the groundbreaking of JPark Island amid hot weather conditions in Panglao.

He then attended another engagement in Loboc town where he inaugurated a new school building.

“Just left Loboc School of Music where we inaugurated a new school building I promised to be built for the Loboc Youth Ambassador Band when I didn’t feel well,” said Chatto.

He was taken to the Ramiro Community Hospital in Tagbilaran City but was advised to seek medical attention at St. Luke’s where his medical records are also kept.

According to Chatto, his transportation to Metro Manila on board an air ambulance was arranged by his friend.

Following his discharge from the hospital, Chatto thanked doctors and nurses at Ramiro and St. Luke’s as well as personnel of Asian Aerospace air ambulance.

“Thank you for all your prayers and sincere well wishes. We really treasure them,” he said.

The governor remains in Metro Manila however as he will be attending a meeting with the League of Provinces of the Philippines this week.
