Hospitals Appoint New Programme Manager for Allied Therapeutic Services

Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Sita Ingram to the newly created position of Programme Manager for Allied Therapeutic Services.

Ms. Ingram will be responsible for a multidisciplinary team of approximately 50 staff providing rehabilitation services, including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language pathologists, clinical and rehabilitation aides, wheelchair technicians and dieticians.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, Bob Zinnen, Ms. Ingram’s first steps in this new position will be to work with her team and assess the extent and quality of allied healthcare services at the hospital. This involves reviewing staffing levels and seeking ways to improve current practices and processes, with the goal of optimising patient care and outcomes.

Ms. Ingram attended Virginia Commonwealth University and Spelman College and holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Occupational Therapy and an Executive Diploma in Strategic Management. She has most recently been employed with the Department of Health as Programme Administrator for the Opportunity Workshop.

Formerly employed at the hospitals for three years beginning in 1995, Ms. Ingram says both King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute are near and dear to her heart.

“This is an exciting time to be a part of BHB,” she says. “We are in the middle of significant change and growth as a healthcare facility and I am honoured to be a part of this journey.”

“This new position was created to strategically manage our diverse inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, providing a multidisciplinary continuum of patient care,” explains Bob Zinnen. “Therapeutic Services are critically important to quality patient care. This appointment plays a vital role in our commitment to service excellence. We are very fortunate to have hired a Bermudian candidate with such extensive training, skills and experience.”
