GHP recruits new CEO for two of its clinics in Stockholm

Rein Seensalu, gastroenterologist and Associate Professor at the Karolinska Institute, assumes the position of CEO of GHP Kirurgkliniken Stockholm and GHP Stockholm Gastro Center on 1 June 2015. Rein’s most recent position was at Ledningsbolaget i Skandinavien, where he was CEO.

Rein Seensalu has great experience of leadership in health care. He has formerly held a number of senior positions, for example at Capio S:t Göran Hospital, where he was involved in transforming the business from health care under the auspices of the County Council into health care under private management. He has also experience from the pharmaceuticals industry and most recently from Ledningsbolaget, where he held the position of CEO. In this capacity he has been the interim CEO of GHP Kirurgkliniken Stockholm since November. He therefore knows the clinic and the employees well and has already had the opportunity of starting interesting development projects.

“We are very pleased that Rein has chosen to become part of the GHP Group by shouldering the role of CEO for two of our clinics in Stockholm. With his knowledge, energy and experience of leading health care organisations, he will be a great asset to our businesses, which have exciting development opportunities ahead of them,” says Daniel Öhman, CEO of GHP.

GHP Stockholm Gastro Center conducts business operations within medical gastroenterology and endoscopy. GHP Kirurgkliniken Stockholm carries out obesity surgery and general surgery within the fields of proctology, the gall bladder and hernia. Both clinics are situated at Sophiahemmet and GHP Gastro Center Stockholm is also located in premises at Odenplan.
