Grahamstown's Fort England Hospital has a new CEO

The Eastern Cape Department of Health has announced that Nosisana Toni has taken over the reins of Fort England Hospital, a 313-bed, government funded drug rehabilitation and psychiatric hospital situated in Grahamstown, as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

“The department is pleased to announce the appointment of Fort England hospital CEO, Nosisana Toni, with effect from today [Monday].

“She was introduced to hospital management, board and staff and resumed her duties,” said Eastern Cape Health MEC, Helen Sauls-August.

The MEC said Toni’s appointment will stabilise the psychiatric hospital and ensure efficient services.

“Her appointment is intended to close the vacancy which has been there at the hospital for some time and bring stability into the institution so that services are not disrupted,” said Sauls-August.

According to the department, Toni is appointed on transfer from Komani hospital where she managed to “turn the hospital around.”

Toni joins the hospital on a permanent basis.

She brings a wealth of over seven years CEO hospital management experience into Fort England hospital which has been without a permanent CEO for some time.

The MEC and Head of Department Thobile Mbengashe wished Toni all the best in her new responsibilities. –additional reporting SAnews.gov.za
