BHB Resumes Pre-Covid Visiting Hours

November 17, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] has “resumed its pre-Covid visiting hours,” which they said “are slightly longer on most units”

BHB Chief of Nursing Judy Richardson said, “Visiting hours on our Inpatient Medical-Surgical Units at KEMH have returned to 11am to 8pm allowing family and friends more time with their loved ones.

“We recognise how impactful every visitation minute is to both our patients and their friends and families, particularly in the holiday season when loneliness is often felt more strongly.”

A spokesperson said, “Visiting hours for all units at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute are available on the BHB website and are listed below. General in-patient inquiries are also available by visiting or calling the KEMH main reception desk on 239-2001 or the MWI main reception desk on 236-3770.
