Ingut­sheni head­hunts chief ex­ec­u­tive

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Nqo­bile Tshili

INGUT­SHENI Cen­tral Hospi­tal is hunt­ing for a chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer to take over from Mr Leonard Mab­handi who has been ap­pointed as the sub­stan­tive CEO for Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal.

Mr Mab­handi had been act­ing CEO at Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal since last year.

In a state­ment, the Min­istry of Health and Child Care said the Govern­ment is look­ing for a suit­able can­di­date with lead­er­ship qual­i­ties and a strate­gic vi­sion for Ingut­sheni Cen­tral Hospi­tal.

The Min­istry said the CEO should have be­tween three to five years as an ad­min­is­tra­tor.

“The CEO should pro­vide a lead­er­ship en­vi­ron­ment which en­cour­ages ini­tia­tive, en­ter­prise, re­search as well as de­liv­ery of clin­i­cal and sup­port­ing ser­vices,” reads the state­ment.

The hunt for a new CEO comes at a time when Ingut­sheni Cen­tral Hospi­tal is fac­ing se­ri­ous drug short­ages, a de­vel­op­ment that has seen some pa­tients at­tack­ing the hospi­tal staff.

Mean­while, Dr Sol­wayo Ng­wenya has been ap­pointed the sub­stan­tive clin­i­cal di­rec­tor for Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal.

Dr Ng­wenya takes over from Dr Wedu Nde­bele who re­signed last year.

The hospi­tal’s board chair­per­son Mrs Sichele­sile Moyo-Ncube said the ap­point­ments come at a time when the hospi­tal needs sta­bil­ity in lead­er­ship.-@nqot­shili
