Neat story on the construction phase of the Okyanos clinic that Matt mailed me:

Okyanos Heart Institute already making an impact in the Grand Bahama community

Governmental and Port Authority officials visit the construction site of the Okyanos Heart Institute on The Mall Drive. Over 70 workers are presently employed on the project.

Freeport, Grand Bahama – The Okyanos Heart Institute, slated to begin operating on Grand Bahama Island in early 2014, has already begun to make an impact within the local community.

The company, whose mission is to bring a new standard of care and better quality of life to patients with coronary heart disease using cardiac stem cell therapy, has announced that they will be hosting a free educational seminar for the business community and all other interested individuals on Tuesday October 22nd, 5:30pm – 6:30pm, in the Coral Reef Room of the Pelican Bay Hotel.

Participants will not only receive a thorough overview of proposed stem cell therapy but will also be given updates on employment opportunities and contractual services that will be needed once the facility opens.

“This is a very exciting time for Grand Bahama,” stated Ian Rolle, President, The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited (GBPA). “Several new ventures including Okyanos, a new call centre and many others, are about to open, affording opportunities for diverse areas of employment for hundreds of residents on the island.”

At the upcoming meeting on October 22nd, Okyanos officials will provide a preliminary list of medical, clinical and administrative jobs that the institute will need to fill towards the end of the year. Additionally, an overview will be given of what services will be needed from small businesses on the island, such as janitorial, hospital grade laundry, transportation, lodging, catering, pest control and more.

“Okyanos Heart Institute will have a number of service needs from the local business community,” stated Erika Mangrum, SVP of Communications for the company. “We hope to meet potential suppliers and servicers and share what our needs will be from service providers, and share employment needs once we are close to opening in February. We could not be more enthused about bringing patients to the beautiful island of Grand Bahama in the hopes of improving the quality of their lives by restoring flow to their hearts.”

Even now, President Rolle noted that scores of Grand Bahamians are already benefiting from employment as preparations continue in advance of Okyanos’ arrival. Presently, over 70 construction workers are busily completing final phases of the medical complex on the upper floors of The First Commercial Centre on The Mall Drive.

“As each of these new developments come on stream, it’s creating job opportunities in the preliminary construction phase and post-operations. This increased employment subsequently brings about an economic injection and positive well-being within the local community,” Rolle added.

Registration for the seminar is requested as seating is limited. Interested persons are encouraged to call 242.688.2667 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Best Regards,
Okyanos Heart Institute

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:
