Addu City, Maldives – Renowned surgeon, Dr. Mohamed Salih has been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Addu Equatorial Hospital (AEH) in Addu City.
Belonging to the southernmost most atoll of Maldives, Dr. Salih is one of the most famously known surgeon of Maldives. In-fact, he has worked as a senior member in several major hospitals, including the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) and Medica Hospital in the capital Malé city of Maldives.
As the hospital has been under the supervision of the President’s Office since September 27th, Information revealed by a local media outlet “Hali” stated that the decision to appoint Dr. Salih as the CEO of AEH was taken by the President’s Office itself.
Hopes have been flourishing amongst people since the announcement of Dr. Salih’s appointment. Since an experienced doctor like Dr. Salih has taken the responsibility of the hospital, citizens are expecting the services of the tertiary hospital to get better at a fast phase and for the hospital to use the appropriate machines to treat sick people.
Despite AEH being a tertiary hospital, the hospital has not been able to provide services to their patients at a tertiary level. Due to this, several complains have been raised by the locals as they have to travel to Malé city despite having the needed facilities in their homeland.
Although it is not confirmed as to when Dr. Salih will take on the work of the CEO, he is expected to arrive to work as a CEO of AEH in the upcoming days.
