Bermuda Hospitals Board Release John Hopkins Medicine International – Phase II Report

On Wednesday 12 November, Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) released the second phase of the Johns Hopkins Medicine International Report.

The report recommends mixture of renovation and construction over the next five years, which has now been approved by Government, as well as a 25 year sustainable development plan for the site.

Herman Tucker, Chairman of the BHB noted: “As a Board we are focused on ensuring that whether it relates to our staff, our service, our equipment or the development of our facilities, that we are raising standards and improving the healthcare service for the people of Bermuda.”

David Hill, CEO added: “We are very pleased to have Government approval to move forward with the construction of an the Ambulatory Care Centre for outpatient services, a Patient Tower (called hospital phase 2 in the report) for Emergency and single room ensuite patient rooms, as well as the renovation of our existing King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.”
