The Queen’s Health System in Honolulu has acquired Wahiawa General Hospital, with the goal of enhancing healthcare services in the region. This acquisition was made after entering into an asset purchase agreement last November, and involved the participation of the nonprofit hospital’s board, providers, administration, and employees.

Wahiawa General Hospital temporarily closed its emergency department on March 18 due to issues with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. However, 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. The Queen’s Health System plans to reopen the ED this summer and provide improved access to healthcare services for the community.

Robin Kalohelani, RN, who serves as the regional vice president of operations central and associate chief nursing officer at Queen’s Medical Center – West Oahu stated that they will immediately renovate and enhance the Emergency Department and diagnostic services at Wahiawa General Hospital. This decision was made to benefit from increased access to providers, services and specialists within Queen’s Health System. They have extended employment offers to nearly 100 Wahiawa General Hospital employees and encouraged existing hospital staff to explore opportunities within the health system.

This acquisition marks a significant step towards improving healthcare services in Central O’ahu and providing better care for patients in need of medical attention. With this new addition to their roster, Queen’s Health System continues its mission of delivering quality healthcare services to communities across Hawaii.
