Ingutsheni headhunts chief executive
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
