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 yesterday (Thurs).

The meeting was held, following 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 Ministry 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.
