NDA applauds Muddle for great effort

The PNG National Doctors Association (PNG NDA) has applauded outgoing chief executive officer for Port Moresby General Hospital (PMGH), Grant Muddle, for a great effort.

Muddle departed the country over the weekend after his contract ended in June this year.

PNG NDA president Dr James Naipao said the hospital has seen a tremendous change under Muddle’s leadership since he joined almost three-and-a-half years ago.

Naipao highlighted that Muddle has performed extremely above expectation as a CEO, and as a result, PMGH has seen a lot of changes never seen in the last 20 years.

“It is a pity PMGH and PNG will lose a performing CEO.

“His adaptive responses to union demands and answers, and reaching common ground despite some little hiccups, have been up to standard.

“We hope he returns in any capacity to contribute to this young nation building,” Naipao said.

Naipao, on behalf of the PNG NDA, wished Muddle the best of luck in his future endeavours.

Muddle was farewelled on Monday, November 28, by the staff at the PMGH.

His replacement is yet to be confirmed by the hospital board.
