Local Health Insurance Office - Surigao City


PhilHealth Local Health Insurance Office in Surigao del Norte is located at the heart of the progressive City of Surigao, which also happens to be the capital of the province. Surigao, formerly known as "Banahao" , officially became a town when it became the permanent residence of the "Recollects" on February 1, 1752. It then became a chartered city on August 31, 1970.

Brief Trivia. There are many versions regarding the meaning of Surigao. One version was that the name came from the Spanish word "Surgir", meaning swift water, or current. This is evident due to the fact that Surigao del Norte lies on the northeastern tip of Mindanao and faces the world's deepest point, the Philippine Deep. The province is surrounded on the north and east by the Pacific Ocean, on the south by the provinces of Agusan del Norte and Surigao del Sur, and on the west by the historic Siargao Strait. Due to its geography, Surigao del Norte has a rich potential in tourism and natural resources, and made her known as the "Jewel of the Pacific".
