Hawaii hospital acquired by The Queen’s Health System

The Queen’s Health System in Honolulu has purchased Wahiawa General Hospital, following an asset purchase agreement that was entered into last November. This acquisition involved the participation of the nonprofit hospital’s board, providers, administration, and employees. According to a news release on April 3, Wahiawa General Hospital temporarily closed its emergency department on March 18 due to issues with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

Robin Kalohelani, RN, who serves as the regional vice president of operations, central, and associate chief nursing officer of the Queen’s Medical Center – West Oahu, stated in the release that Queen’s plans to immediately renovate and enhance the Emergency Department and diagnostic services at Wahiawa General Hospital. This decision was made as Queen’s Medical Center – Wahiawa is the nearest emergency department for the residents of Wahiawa, Central O’ahu, and the North Shore, making it their initial priority. The Queen’s Health System aims to reopen the ED this summer, providing the community with improved access to healthcare services.

Through this acquisition, the community will benefit from increased access to providers
