A number of state hospital managers will be removed from their positions in November after failing to pass an evaluation process, the government said on Friday.

Alternate Health Minister Pavlos Polakis said the government has received the results of the assessments and will be seeking to replace most of the hospital managers in the next few weeks.

“The vast majority will leave based on the marks they got,” he said. Kathimerini understands that around 10 percent of officials will remain in their positions after being deemed to have done at least satisfactory jobs.

Caretaker administrators will be installed at hospitals where the managers will be removed while the government invites applications for the vacancies and a special committee assesses the candidates. The process of appointing new hospital directors is expected to take around three months.
