Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust (BHCT) is pleased to announce that Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited (BCB) has made a donation of $250,000 to the Why it Matters campaign. Aimed at raising $40 million dollars by Spring 2014, the Why it Matters campaign has but one goal; to transform King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) into a world-class hospital facility for Bermuda. 

Horst E. Finkbeiner II, COO and Director of BCB, stated “The new hospital is a very necessary project that has benefit to the entire community and contributes to the quality of life for all Bermudians. All of us, our children and families will make use of this facility at some point in our lives. As a member of the community, the BCB team feels that it is the right thing to do to join the many others who have helped and to lend our support to the new hospital. We are very pleased to make this donation and trust that it will prove beneficial.” 

Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust is appreciative of the generosity of Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited. Wendy Augustus, Executive Director of BHCT stated, “We are truly grateful to Bermuda Commercial Bank for this significant gift. Our hospital serves Bermuda’s entire population and in cases of serious injury it is the only option for care. Each and every resident will benefit from the redevelopment of the hospital and we are thankful for our generous donors, like BCB, who are helping by supporting the Why it Matters campaign. This donation underscores BCB’s commitment to supporting worthy causes in the community.” Individuals or companies wishing to make a donation to the Why it Matters campaign can do so online at or call 295-BHCT(2428) for more information.
