BHB Teams Up with Logic Communications to Offer Affordable Computers to Staff

Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) and Logic Communications teamed up in June to offer hospital staff members an opportunity to purchase computer equipment for personal use through Logic’s Colours of Logic programme. In addition to attractive pricing for the equipment, BHB offered staff members the option of a 12-month, interest-free loan to purchase the computers.

Over 400 employees from King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) and Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute (MWI) took advantage of the BHB Employee Computer Purchase Programme and signed up to buy HP Compaq desktop and laptop computers, as well as LCD monitors, Microsoft Office 2007 software packages, printers, Powershot digital cameras, flash drives and carrying cases.

“We are very pleased about partnering with Logic on this initiative,” said Jorge Grillo, Chief Information Officer. “This was a great opportunity for employees to purchase state-of-the-art computer systems for home use. The response from staff was tremendous- about 25% of our employees participated.”

Paul Coleman, VP Marketing for Logic said, “The hospital management team worked hard to make this effort a success for their staff. It’s fantastic that so many employees now have the computers and Internet access they need.”

As an added bonus, M3 Wireless also participated by offering employee discounts on cellular phones and service. “M3 was very happy to be a part of this great initiative and commends the hospital management team for launching the programme,” said Lloyd Fray, CEO of M3 Wireless.

“One of the reasons the hospital was happy to support this initiative is because our employees will benefit from having access to computers and the Internet,” said Mr. Grillo. “We are very pleased to be able to offer affordable, top quality computer equipment to our staff members.”

Hospital staff were enthusiastic about taking advantage of the programme. “I have wanted good computer equipment for some time,” said Lynae Wales, Student Volunteer Coordinator. “The partnership between BHB and Logic enabled me to purchase a quality system.”
