In Suzanne Holshouser's haste to distance herself and the OBA from their neglect of the East End and their culpability in the closure of the Lamb-Foggo Urgent Care Centre, she neglected one simple fact.

When Mrs. Holshouser said this was a decision of the BHB Board she failed to reveal that OBA MP Jeanne Atherden, OBA Chairman Thad Hollis and Former OBA MP and Ministry of Health consultant Louise Jackson were ALL members of the board.  

As much as Mrs. Holshouser tries to distract and deflect from the OBA's responsibilities the facts are that the OBA's fingerprints are all over this one.

As long as the OBA keeps looking backwards, refuses to be open, transparent and accountable and runs from their responsibilities, we will continue to struggle in getting Bermudians back to work.  

Let's work together on solutions so that we can keep the Lamb-Foggo Centre open.


 

UPDATE, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 6, 4:20PM: An OBA spokesperson had the following to say regarding Zane Desilva's comments:

"Mr DeSilva is being a little disingenuous. Does every board that has PLP members on it toe the PLP line? Of course not.

"There are ten members of the Bermuda Hospitals Board, plus one voting ex-officio member and three non-voting ex-officio members. Three people don’t make decisions for a Board of that size."
