BHB Annual Report 2014
BHB report filed for 2014
Annual reports for the Bermuda Hospitals Board, which have lagged at the Auditor-General’s office, will “soon be completely up to date”, the health minister pledged.
Kim Wilson tabled the BHB’s annual report for 2013-14 in the House of Assembly on Friday.
Ms Wilson told MPs that the five outstanding reports would be published over the course of “the coming financial year”.
In her preamble to the 52-page report, Ms Wilson said that “a lot of accomplishments” were marked by BHB that year, “including improvements in patients’ experience, preparing for the opening of the new Acute Care Wing, and careful management of public monies — securing a $46.6 million surplus to reinvest into the hospitals’ infrastructure and Bermuda’s health system”.
She added: “The Government is proud of our country’s hospitals and indebted to the 1,800 dedicated staff at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute who serve our community selflessly — particularly in times of emergencies.
“We are indebted to the executive team leading BHB’s ongoing improvements and cost-containment initiatives.”
Ms Wilson also thanked the board that served at the time for “overseeing enhancements in governance and policy for the hospital’s leadership”.
