After an intense recruitment drive, 102 hospital chief executives have been appointed, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said.

"As of today, we have filled 102 posts and we are head-hunting for 16 CEOs," he said in a statement.

The chief executives were appointed with effect from February 1. They would undergo training at the Academy of Health and Leadership Management in Health Care, which the health department started in November 2012.

The appointments followed well-thought out processes and were made in accordance with the law and labour procedures, Motsoaledi said.

This was after new criteria for hospital chief executives were published in the Government Gazette. CEOs needed to be from healthcare backgrounds and needed at least five years experience in middle and top management of a health institution.

"Early last year we embarked on a massive recruitment drive and a total of 92 posts for hospital CEOs were advertised by the national department of health, and 30 were advertised at provincial level for convenience."
