The statement quotes Cansino as saying, “It is my honour to join the KHMH team and I look forward to the continued path toward excellence. There is much work to be done, but my confidence in the commitment of the men and women who serve at the KHMH remains strong.”

The Authority also confirmed the appointments of new Board members Drs. Julio Sabido and Fernando Cuellar, along with Ms. Daisy Codd, and promised “new appointments to critical positions in the management of the KHMH shortly, as we prepare for challenging days ahead.
