Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital CEO Relieved Of Duties

The Chief Executive of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare, has been relieved of his duties as CEO, with effect from Monday, August 31st, 2009. The Minister of Health, Dr. George Sipa-Yankey, who confirmed this to PEACEFM NEWS, also explained that they “are not entirely dispensing with the services of Dr. Nsiah-Asare,” as he could be asked to take up another appointment elsewhere within the Health Service." According to him, “the re-shuffling exercise does not affect only the KATH CEO, but many other health workers across the country.” Dr. Sipa-Yankey disclosed that, though the letters, relieving the affected personnel of their duties have been prepared, they are yet to be given out. Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare was appointed in 2000 as the Chief Executive Officer of KATH. He was initially the Medical Superintendent of the Tamale Hospital (now a Teaching Hospital), before he took up the KATH CEO position.
