From Monday 1 October Annika Tibell will act as acting hospital director. This has been decided by the provincial governor in consultation with the Karolinska University Hospital Board since Melvin Samsom left his position as hospital director on Monday 24 September.
Samson's message came only a few hours after DN's revelations of important advisory costs to rent out his former Dutch colleagues and acquaintances – something he does not have to deal with.
Annika Tibell has previously Assistant hospital director and operational director at Karolinska University Hospital.
"Annika Tibell has a very good experience and a lot of trust in the organization of the Karolinska University Hospital, which is why she is a logical choice as acting hospital director, and together with other hospital management she will lead the case until a regular hospital director is present." said Malin Frenning, provincial council director in the press release.
At the same time the Provincial Council announces that a recruitment process has started after a new hospital director at the University Hospital.
