Bermuda Hospitals Board Invites Community to Discuss the Future of Our Hospitals

The Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is inviting the community to participate in its estate master planning exercise, a process that will result in a blueprint for the future of Bermuda’s hospitals. The BHB is hosting a total of four town hall meetings, which will be moderated by Senator Alfred Oughton. The meetings will be publicized through radio and newspaper advertisements, and also through the BHB website www.bermudahospitals.bm.

The dates and times of the town hall meetings are:

October 18, 2004
Sandy’s Secondary Middle School
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

October 19, 2004
City Hall, Hamilton
12:30 pm to 2:00 pm OR
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

October 21, 2004
Penno’s Wharf, St. George’s
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The BHB is asking that the community come prepared to discuss the following questions:

– What do you think the primary objective(s) should be in terms of improving the scope and services of King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) and St. Brendan’s Hospital (SBH) over the next 10 years?
– What do you see as the primary strengths and weaknesses of KEMH and SBH?
– As we develop the estate master plan, what are the primary issues that need to be addressed?
“We encourage the community to attend these meetings so they can learn more about the estate master planning process and voice their opinions. Our hospitals touch each and every one of us either directly or indirectly, and this is an important opportunity to have a say in their future,” said Joan Dillas-Wright, chief executive officer of the Bermuda Hospitals Board.

The final estate master plan will be presented to the BHB, key stakeholders and the public in May 2005. The BHB will then use this plan to implement short and long-term facilities and infrastructure planning guidelines, year by year, until 2015. BHB employees, physicians, Board members and various stakeholders in the community are involved in creating the long-range plan.

“By attending these town hall meetings, residents of Bermuda will take part in the process that will shape our hospitals,” said Jonathan Brewin, chairman of the Bermuda Hospitals Board. “Patient care and convenience are at the forefront of our plans for Bermuda’s hospitals, and we urge the community to come forward with their thoughts on these significant issues.”

The Bermuda Hospitals Board will update the community on progress made with the estate master plan on a timely basis.
