Friday 25 June 2021: Bermuda Hospitals Board thanks philanthropist Sean McNulty and his charity, Frontline Foundation, for the generous donation of a $50 gift card to each member of staff. Mr McNulty presented the gift cards on Tuesday 22 June 2021.
In a letter to hospital staff he stated: “This is an everyone initiative, and is a small gesture from us to say thank you very much for all that you do. And particularly for your exceptional effort during this pandemic, which is on top of all the important things that you already do. What you and other front line workers are doing for the community is really what we are thankful for; and is the main reason we have started this foundation in the first place.”
The gift cards can be used at more than 65 local businesses.
BHB Chief of Nursing Judy Richardson accepted the cards on behalf of staff and thanked Mr McNulty for recognising and rewarding the work of BHB staff.
She stated: “Our frontline healthcare workers worked tirelessly to treat and save patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their unfaltering commitment to service our community was on display every day. With their compassion, these frontline heroes continued to ‘pursue excellence through improvement, to make Bermuda proud.’ We are very pleased to continue our community support with the recent addition of the vaccination clinic, which has supported the Ministry of Health in its effort to improve vaccination rates in Bermuda. We are proud to be part of this important national strategy.
“Recipients of the gift include mental health and acute care staff, long-term care, nurse auxiliary, allied health services, outpatient services, environmental service workers, food service workers, transporters and multiple layers of administrative and support staff. We are appreciative of this recognition and are committed to our mission ‘to continuously strive to deliver the highest quality and safest care to our patients, every day’.
