The Acting Chief Executive Officer of the hospital Dr Akapusi Ledua has turned down a job offer from Alaska, to stay and continue his service for the people of American Samoa for another two years.
There were concerns by members of the local medical fraternity that Dr Ledua would take up the offer by a hospital in Alaska, but it's now confirmed he will continue his service at the hospital.
Dr Ledua who has been serving on the LBJ medical team for over 20 years recently had his contract extended and it’s set to expire next month.
In an interview with KVZK News, Dr Ledua confirmed that he will apply for the CEO position that has been vacant since February this year.
Dr Ledua recently graduated with Honors from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona with a Master of Business Administration with Emphasis in Health System Management.
In an earlier interview, Dr Ledua set his goals to do more administrative executive roles and fewer clinical roles.
He is a member of the American Association of Physician Leaders and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and is working towards getting his membership and fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives.
