The Chief of Emergency Services and Hyperbaric Medicine at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital will be recognised by the Bermuda Health Foundation this month.

Edward Schultz, who has worked at the hospital since 1988, will be honoured at the organisation’s 15th Annual Salute to Service Award Luncheon on June 30.

The BHF noted in a statement that Dr Schultz was the attending emergency physician at Mt Sinai Medical Centre of Greater Miami in Florida before moving to Bermuda.

“In addition to his duties in the emergency department at King Edward, Dr Schultz is a member of various committees,” the statement added.

“He is the chairman of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Committee and the Emergency Medical Technicians Advisory Committee. He is also actively involved with the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, where his wife, Crystal is the education and research coordinator, the Bermuda Historical Society, the Bermuda Red Cross, St Johns Volunteer Ambulance Brigade and Rotary International. An avid Scuba diver, Dr Schultz is also a licensed dive instructor in Bermuda.”

Last year’s honouree was John Wight, the president and CEO of BF&M and the chairman of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce.

During the luncheon, the BHF will also present scholarships to students selected to receive funding towards their medical studies. The 2016 recipients were Meliseanna Gibbons, a student at St George’s University in Grenada, Alesha Page, who is studying at the University of Sydney in Australia, and Rebekah Simons, a student at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

The luncheon will be followed by the 15th annual Charity Golf Tournament at the Belmont Hills Golf Course starting at 8.00am on July 1.

Tickets for the luncheon cost $150 and can be collected from LaVerne Furbert, who can be contacted at 335-8232 or by e-mail at lavernef@northrock.bm. The entry fee for the golf tournament is $150.00.
