OVERVIEW General Information The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) began operations in July 1999, pursuant to an Act of Parliament (1998) as a Public Corporation responsible for the management and development of the three (3) public hospitals in The Bahamas, namely: Princess Margaret Hospital, New Providence Sandilands Rehabilitation Center, New Providence Rand Memorial Hospital, Grand Bahama Although two (2) of these tertiary hospitals are located in New Providence and one (1) in Grand Bahama, they serve the entire population of the Bahamas. As a result, coordinated governance of multiple access points is therefore essential in order to offer an integrated continuum of health care. In addition to its statutory mandate for the management of public hospitals, the PHA is charged, under delegated authority of the Minister of Health, with responsibility for the management and development of four (4) other areas of the public sector health services systems, namely: Materials Management Directorate Bahamas National (Pharmaceutical) Drug Agency National Emergency Medical Services; and Grand Bahama Community Health Services (this includes the health care clinics in the area and surrounding Cays) The PHA is guided by strategic direction and goals defined by the Ministry of Health to achieve an overall national health vision for Healthy People, Effective Healthcare Delivery Systems and Efficient Operations of Services within the Bahamas, and works in conjunction with the Ministry and its agencies to achieve targets for the public sector health services system. The PHA is governed by a Board of Directors headed by a Chairman. The Chief Executive of the PHA is the Managing Director, who is assisted by a Page | 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
