Dr Mrs Juliana Oye Ameh has been appointed as the first Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The Trust Hospital in Accra.
The appointment comes after the hospital was hived off from its parent company – Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) in January 2013.
Dr Ameh is a Senior Specialist Paediatrician and had her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria in Nigeria in 2000. She later pursued a post graduate training in paediatrics at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
She has over 15 years progressive experience in paediatrics, neonatal and child health. She comes into her new role with over seven years specialized experience in health services development and management.
She has been involved in several health developmental projects such as national health policies, protocols and training manuals in Ghana.
Dr Ameh has been a member of the West African College of Physicians in the Faculty of Paediatrics since 2006.
She has a post-Graduate Certificate with distinction in Business Administration and a Certificate in Health Administration and Management, all secured in 2012 at GIMPA.
Prior to joining The Trust Hospital Company Limited (TTHCL), Dr. Ameh was the Medical Superintendent at Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Authority (LEKMA) Hospital where she set up a thriving health delivery model in the hospital and made enormous impact in the steady rise of the hospital.
Commenting on how she will manage a private hospital of this caliber, Dr. Ameh said, “Clinical and administrative excellence can only be achieved through team effort and hard work. Through this, every person that walks into any of the nine facilities of The Trust Hospital Company Limited would walk out happy and satisfied.
“Overall, I hope to upscale the hospital in terms of clinical care, research, continued professional education and rightful application of technology for maximum efficiency. I will also seek to build team spirit in both the medical and non-medical professionals to maintain the hospital as one of the leaders in private healthcare providers in Africa,” Dr. Ameh added.
