Miami Herald, July 22, 2009

The Bank of the Bahamas has announced a new Visa card that allows Bahamians 30% to 60% discounts at seven South Florida hospitals. The card, which was in development for two years, is "designed to provide as many persons as possible with access to affordable healthcare," bank executive Vaughn Delaney told the Miami Herald. South Florida facilities accepting the card are Mercy Hospital, Baptist Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Florida, Jackson Memorial, Broward General, Miami Children's, and UM Health Systems.
