KEMH Salutes Centenarian Club Continuing Care Unit Celebrates Every Day With 100+ Year-Old Patients

The Continuing Care Unit (CCU) at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) is celebrating a milestone with a record five patients who are each more than 100 years old. Pictured from left to right (front row) are: Mary Williams, 104; Maria Trott, 100; Ruth Wainwright, 102; Margaret Burrows, 105; and Daphne Matthews, 102. In the back row are CCU staff members Michelle Barnett, Rache Somner and Shekieta Watts.

In addition to providing the highest level of medical care and attention, the CCU team develops a monthly calendar of events that gives patients the opportunity to pursue their interests in a social setting. The CCU encourages independence and opportunities for its residents to make their own choices, develop hobbies and become involved in the community, thereby allowing for maximum mental, physical and spiritual stimulation.

“We are delighted to have these patients in our care at KEMH,” said Joan Dillas-Wright, chief executive officer of the Bermuda Hospitals Board. “I congratulate the patients for this milestone, and the staff of the Continuing Care Unit for their unwavering commitment and dedication to providing the highest level of patient care.”
