Following a comprehensive recruitment process carried out by a professional recruitment agency the Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Acting CEO Dr Robert Nyarango to the permanent CEO position.

Robert has an MSc in Clinical Pharmacy from Queens University, Belfast and an MBA in Strategic Management from USIU as well as various other professional affiliations and has 13 years’ service with the Hospital, most recently as Head of Outpatient Services. Over this time he has made a significant contribution both clinically and organisationally and has been responsible for the Hospital’s establishment of the successful Outpatient Clinic network. His experience is a great  advantage in maintaining operational continuity and he was also demonstrably the most suitably qualified candidate for the position.

The appointment is effective immediately and we are confident that he will lead the Hospital to new levels of achievement.
