The Trust Hospital has appointed Dr. Mrs. Juliana Oye Ameh as its first Chief Executive Officer, since the hospital was hived off from the mother 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 fifteen years’ progressive experience in paediatrics, neonatal and child health.

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 maximal 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.
