The former acting CEO of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr Felix Anyah has been appointed the new Board Chairman of the Ho Teaching Hospital.
Speaking during the commissioning of the Board of Directors for both the Korle Bu and Ho Teaching Hospitals, the Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman Manu said the new Boards are the “first under the much-awaited amendment of Section 37 of Act 525 of the Ghana Health Service and Teaching Hospital act, 1996.”
The Health Minister said under the 1996 Ghana Health Service and Teaching Hospital Act 525, the membership of the Teaching Hospital Boards then consisted of about 80% of hospital management staff.
But for efficient corporate governance, the Board now consist of 10 professionals not of the hospital’s management with only the Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital as member forming a total composition of 11.
“It is in this light that section 37 of act 525, which defines the membership of Ghana Health Service and Teaching Hospitals was amended by Parliament and assented to on 27th December 2019,” he added.
While thanking President Akufo-Addo for the honour done him, Dr. Anyah pledged to develop the new Teaching Hospital by liaising with international accreditation bodies such as JCI International in other to promote medical/health tourism to the hospital and the Volta region as well as make Ghana a Medical Tourism hub.
