Driveway opens to the Botanical Gardens from Point Finger Road
(Hamilton, Bermuda, June 14, 2011)
Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) today advises motorists that a new driveway from Point Finger Road to the Botanical Gardens is now open near the mobile construction site offices. This access driveway does not serve King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
Paget Health Services made a commitment to replace the former entrance road to the Botanical Gardens, which was closed due to construction activity on the new hospital building site.
For those on foot, a sidewalk that joins Point Finger Road and the Botanical Gardens has been built adjacent to Paget Health Services’ mobile site offices.
BHB would also like to inform the public that the new entrance door to the Continuing Care Unit is now operational, and the footpath from Point Finger Road to that door is now open.

About Bermuda Hospitals Board:
The Bermuda Hospitals Board is a quango (quasi autonomous non-governmental organisation) established under the Bermuda Hospitals Board Act, 1970. It has a Bermuda Government-approved Board and a Chief Executive Officer, responsible for King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute. At the heart of both organisations is high quality care to all patients.
With approximately 1,700 employees, the Bermuda Hospitals Board is Bermuda’s second largest employer. King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute are the only healthcare organisations in Bermuda accredited by Accreditation Canada, an independent organisation whose role is to help hospitals examine and improve the quality of care and service they provide to their clients. In addition to providing an extensive list of services for the community, the Bermuda Hospitals Board is part of a referral network that includes some of the world’s leading specialist hospitals.
About the KEMH Redevelopment Project:
The design, construction, financing and maintenance of newly built facilities at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) will be delivered by a form of public private partnership (PPP). It is expected that the first patients will walk through the doors of the new facilities in 2014. Over the next six to seven years, BHB will also renovate the existing KEMH hospital building using traditional procurement methods. These renovations will be funded by BHB and managed as a separate part of the overall redevelopment project. Both renovation and the addition of newly constructed space are vital to the complete redevelopment of KEMH to meet Bermuda’s future acute healthcare needs.
