BCB gives $250K boost to hospital project

The fundraising effort to support the hospital's new Acute Care Wing will receive a $250,000 boost today courtesy of the Bermuda Commercial Bank (BCB).

BCB director Horst Finkbeiner said the bank is pleased to support the Bermuda Hospital Charitable Trust's “Why it Matters” fundraising campaign as the charity work to meet their $40 million goal by next spring.

“We look at it as a necessary project for Bermuda,” Mr Finkbeiner said. “Every single one of us will use this facility during our lives. As part of the community we felt it was important that we step forward and help, as many others have.”

Wendy Augustus, executive director of the BHCT said the new wing at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital will play a major role in bringing Bermuda's healthcare service into the 21st century when it opens its doors next year.

“Our hospital serves Bermuda's entire population and, in cases of serious injury, it's the only option for care,” she said. “Each and every resident will benefit from the redevelopment of the hospital, and that is why we are thankful for our generous donors, like BCB, who are helping by supporting the ‘Why it Matters' campaign.”
