BHB offers comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitative services in response to Bermuda’s full spectrum of medical and mental health needs.BHB is mandated through legislation to provide quality mental health and acute medical care for the people of Bermuda. As a quango, our operations are managed by BHB’s Executive Team under the governance of a Government-appointed Board.We serve Bermuda's resident population of approximately 65,000 people, as well as the many visitors who come to our island each year.Composed of more than 100 individual islands, Bermuda has a land mass of about 21 square miles. Given our relatively isolated geographic location in the Atlantic Ocean, the Bermuda community needs a range of services far broader than would commonly be expected of a hospital serving a similar population base.
