Bermuda to host new healthcare conference


Bermuda will host the Bermuda Healthcare Forum in March, aimed at buyers for major hospital systems, long-term care facilities, physicians groups and health benefits and services providers from North American healthcare markets.

Sponsored by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), the Forum will take place on March 15 – 16 at Rosewood Tucker's Point. According to organisers it has already sold out capacity after registering 160 delegates, including more than 100 from overseas along with a dozen accompanying guests, and nearly 60 Bermuda-based attendees. Delegates and guests from abroad are booked into both Rosewood Tucker's Point and the Grotto Bay Resort.

"The BDA is thrilled to be lead sponsor of the first Bermuda Healthcare Forum," said BDA Business Development Manager Jereme Ramsay. "Members of Bermuda's healthcare risk-management sector met at BDA last year to discuss industry trends and exchange ideas. Through this collaboration, the idea to host a healthcare forum on-island was put forward-and industry representatives here have worked very hard to make the idea a reality.

"The forum will present a great opportunity to bring brokers, insurance buyers and other risk professionals to the island," noted Ramsay, "and through collective engagement, competing industry partners here have been able to achieve shared success for both their respective companies and the jurisdiction as a whole."

The agenda for the Bermuda Healthcare Forum has been structured around eight thematic sessions that address the changing risk landscape in healthcare and feature a variety of industry participants detailing how different companies are handling changes.
