The following statement is provided by Hawaii Pacific Health President & CEO
Hawaii Pacific Health has publicly been in support of statewide legislation that would allow HHSC to privatize or form some type of public/private partnership. Further to that effort, Hawaii Pacific Health has been in talks with Maui Memorial Medical Center regarding a possible public-private partnership. In the absence of such legislation, our discussions have continued and are intending to be ongoing. The talks are very preliminary and exploratory. They are conducted in the spirit of ensuring that all people of Hawaii have continued access to high quality, local care.
Hawaii Pacific Health is the state’s largest health care provider with more than 50 outpatient clinics and service sites, and over 1,600 affiliated physicians. The system is anchored by its four hospitals: Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, Pali Momi Medical Center, Straub Clinic and Hospital, and Wilcox Memorial Hospital on Kauai.
