UHWI Board dissolved
The board of management of the University Hospital of the West Indies UHWI has been dissolved.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the board convened by Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton on Thursday.
The meeting was followed the resignation of the chairman Wayne Chai Chong on Monday December 4.
Dr. Tufton says the resignation comes after a series of discussions on the strategic direction of the hospital and deliberations on the way forward, for critical projects.
The minister adds that based on these considerations, the chair has noted that he is not able to lead the process to make the changes, that will enable the hospital to attain its mandate and has resigned
A statement from the health ministry notes that yesterday’s meeting also agreed that key strategic actions will need to be taken to realign the organisation.
These include the recruitment and appointment of a new chief executive officer and the reinstitution of a new board of management to improve the governance, management and operational efficiency of the institution.
