The Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust said it has raised $20 million in donations in just five months- thanks in large part to the generosity of the local and international business community.
The figure already is half of what the BHCT hopes to raise by spring 2014 to help fund construction of the Island’s new hospital, which is expected to be completed by then.
