Former People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) Parliamentarian, Dr Max Hanoman is tipped to become the new Chairman of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) Board of Directors.
This was confirmed by Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton who stated that the Government has identified Hanoman as its frontrunner for the position though, he said, the decision was not final.
Dr Noel Blackman, who was appointed Chairman of the GPHC on December 31, 2015, was recently arrested and charged in the United States for illegally writing a large number of prescriptions for a narcotic-based painkiller.
Following Dr Blackman’s arrest, Dr Norton had publicly declared that he was “disappointed” that the newly-appointed GPHC Chairman has been arrested and charged with illegally issuing prescriptions for a powerful painkiller in New York.
Dr Hanoman who is a PNC stalwart, is the former Medical Director of the University of Guyana’s School of Medicine and currently operates the Dr Max Hanoman Medical Centre.
