Gunnar Ahlberg, physician and experienced leader in Swedish health care, will join GHP as CEO of GHP Kirurgkliniken Stockholm and GHP Stockholm Gastro Center, both at Sophiahemmet in Stockholm, at the beginning of 2018.

Gunnar is a surgeon and an experienced leader in Swedish health care. He received his medical education and PhD at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. He has previously held positions as senior consultant surgeon at the Department of Surgery, Karolinska University Hospital, Head of Surgery at Aleris Sabbatsberg Hospital, CEO at Sollentuna Specialty Care and CEO at Spine Surgery Strängnäs. He has a deep interest and network in education and research. He was formerly chairman of the Minimal Invasive Surgery Association in Sweden and is currently a Board Member of EAES (European Association of Endoscopic Surgery).

“I am looking forward to being a part of GHP and am inspired by the organisation’s genuine focus on quality through specialisation. I will work with the staff to develop the clinics and strengthen their collaboration with the rest of the health care system. I will continue my surgical practice at the clinic, which deepens my understanding of the clinics’ challenges and opportunities,” says Gunnar.

“We are delighted to now have Gunnar on board at GHP, as he combines quality-focused values, an empowering leadership style and a driven business mind. He is an excellent contribution not just to these two clinics at Sophiahemmet but also to GHP in a broader perspective, says Max van Eijk, GHP’s Business Area Manager in Stockholm.
