The BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) is searching for a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Trinidad national Paula Chester-Cumberbatch had taken up the post of CEO back in November 2016 but told BVI News on Monday that she will vacate the post on October 31.
“For personal family-related reasons, I will not be renewing my contract with the Authority,” she said via email.
Cumberbatch said she had officially informed the BVIHSA of her plans, back in February.
Meanwhile, Cumberbatch has described her tenure with the BVIHSA as enjoyable.
“I will never forget the way we pulled together and were a beacon of hope for the community, during and post hurricanes Irma and Maria, to sustain hospital operations and health care service delivery across the territory,” she said.
“We are a family and I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the team for their invaluable contribution in delivering excellent, compassionate, client-centred healthcare.”

The BVIHSA began advertising the post of CEO in local media outlets last week.
The closing date for applicants is May 25.
According to the advert, the CEO of the state-owned medical organisation will be responsible to plan and direct all aspects of the organisation’s policies, objectives, and initiatives and has responsibility for all day-to-day operations.
