The director of the National Health Service (SNS), Dr. Mario Lama, appointed Bernardo Antonio Hilario Reyes as the new director of the North Central Regional Health Service (SRS), a position previously held by the late Manuel Jacinto Lora Perelló.

He also holds a Master’s degree in Health Center Management and a Diploma in Strategic Management and Contemporary Public Management, as well as a degree in Law.

The physician has held executive positions in a university council and health guilds, and is also a university professor.

He is committed to continue with the valuable work and legacy of Dr. Lora Perelló, working with dedication and devotion so that the residents of the provinces of Espaillat, Santiago and Puerto Plata continue to receive timely health care in decent conditions.

“From this new position, I am committed to continue contributing to the strengthening of health services in the North Central region, giving body and soul to continue advancing towards the transformation that is taking place in the Public Health Services Network, which is a priority of President Luis Abinader,” said Hilario Reyes.

The cardiologist Manuel Jacinto Lora Perelló, who was the director of the SRS Norcentral, suffered a craniocerebral trauma due to a fall caused by a cerebrovascular accident. He was treated for more than a week in a private center in Santiago and died in Houston, Texas, United States, hours after being transferred.

Family, friends, doctors and other personalities, among them Vice President Raquel Peña and Dr. Mario Lama, said their last goodbyes to Lora Perelló last Saturday at the Fuente de Luz cemetery in Santiago.

The Council of Aldermen of the Santiago City Council declared two days of municipal mourning for the death of the doctor, from noon on Friday until noon on Sunday.
