The President of The Republic Ghana HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed Dr Felix Anyah, owner of Holy Trinity Medical Centre and Holy Trinity Spa & Health Farm as the New CEO of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Dr. Anyah takes over from Dr. Samuel Asiamah who is the acting CEO of the hospital following the self-termination of office by Dr Gilbert Buckle who reportedly ended his service in February this year.
Dr. Buckle before his departure faced numerous tussles with the Korle Bu Senior Staff Association (KOSSA) who among other things, raised issues about certain decisions he made.
The Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in spite of its admirable status as one of the few major health facilities in the country is bedeviled the many challenges that appear to be insurmountable in spite of the many changes in administration.
The situation of the hospital was described by the Minister for Environment Science and Technology, Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng as a ‘monster’ that cannot be killed.
The former Head of the National Cardiothoracic Centre who worked for several years at the hospital said during his ministerial vetting that “it has become a bigger monster that you cannot kill and you cannot eat.”
