Dr. Fernando Cuellar has resigned from the ‘Board of Governors’ of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH). His resignation was effective immediately; and credible information indicate that it was done while Dr. Cuellar was in a group CHAT with other members of the KHMH management team.
We can only conclude that the communication and decisions made during that CHAT session between Dr. Fernando Cuellar and the Ministry of Health and members of the ‘BOG’ were not being made by consultations, but rather by hierarchy, (autocracy).
Additionally, the abrupt resignation by such a professional or person of high-stature in that profession, is usually an indication of severe discord in upper management.
His resignation comes just 7 weeks after he was appointed in late September 2021, and the overwhelming reasoning seem to be, “Decisions were being made that are not in the best interest of the people of Belize”.
The Minister of Health Michel Chebat is an attorney and the COVID-19 Pandemic has strained relations at the countries primary health care facility in the past few months after his taking over the rains as Minister of Health & Wellness 12 months ago.
