Doctors Hospital believes that this is an important benefit for all Associates and strongly encourages participation. Only 25% of workers in the Bahamas participate in a pension plan as many companies do not offer a pension plan as a benefit to their employees. Doctors Hospital's pension plan is administered by Colonial Pensions and its plan trustee is Butterfield Bank Ltd. The trustee is an independent third party that holds the pension fund accountable for all transactions and decisions made. In short, the trustee works for you. Each Associate has their own individual pension account that is specific to them.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counseling sessions are completely confidential and the first three (3) sessions are provided free of charge to participants. Associates seeking assistance may contact the HR Coordinator or VP HR.Associates do not need to discuss why they are accessing the EAP program only that they need assistance.
