- The medical director of Ridge Hospital has been relieved of his post
- According report, Dr Thomas Anaba’s sack is politically motivated
- The Ridge Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in the Greater Accra Region with a 620 hospital bed
The Public Service Commission and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) Council have terminated the appointment of the medical director of the Ridge Regional Hospital, Dr Thomas Anaba.
According to starrfmonline.com even though the reasons for his sack is not known, a source within the medical circles have cited “political reasons”.
Dr Anaba was appointed on February 1, 2016, in the former administration and was to last till 2020.
Prior to his appointment, Dr Anaba faced stern opposition from the staff of the hospital who objected his selection, citing incompetence and a breach in the selection process.
The staff of the hospital then wanted one, Dr Emmanuel Srofenyo to be appointed the medical director of the facility but this fell on deaf ears as the government of the day [President John Mahama administration] ignored the concerns of the workers.
This led to some sort of breakdown at the Ridge Hospital. But the appointing authority eventually settled on Dr Thomas Anaba.
