FIRST INTERNATIONAL CENTRE TO ACHIEVE
First International Centre to achieve:
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients, supporters, staff members and the community we serve. With the risk of COVID-19 to Bermuda, we seek to reduce any potential threat to our patients, especially those who are elderly, have underlying medical conditions or have compromised immune systems. We are implementing protective measures.
"Our cancer patients are vulnerable to Covid-19. For this reason, we are committing to increased precautions," said Lynne Woolridge, chief executive officer, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre. "By limiting exposure to known and probable risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, we hope to contribute to the containment of this disease in Bermuda."
For Your Health & Safety – Bermuda Cancer and Health have implemented the following changes:
Diagnostic Imaging Services and Radiation Therapy Treatment Continue
Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre will continue to provide diagnostic imaging services and radiation therapy. Appointments will be confirmed by Centre staff and instructions will be provided for alternative building access should your appointment be outside of the new temporary opening hours.
However, if you have the following symptoms: shortness of breath, fever, cough or have travelled in the last 14 days, call 236-1001 for diagnostic imaging appointments or 236-7035 for radiation therapy, to discuss your options with your clinical team.
