Hawaii Pacific Health Nurses Appear in Special Statewide Newspaper Sections


Cover of Nurses Week 2024 newspaper insert.

In honor of National Nurses Week, newspapers across the state of Hawaii – to include the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, The Garden Island, West Hawai‘i Today and Hawai‘i Tribune-Herald – published special Nurses Week inserts in advance of the annual weeklong observance that is held May 6-12.

These commemorative inserts featured Hawaii Pacific Health nurses from across the Hawaii Pacific Health system, who speak to their personal reasons for entering the nursing professional. Each medical center is highlighted with an article, as well, to help provide added insight into the role nurses play in delivering quality care and exceptional service to our patients and community.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser includes stories on Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center and Straub Benioff Medical Center and Straub Clinics on Oahu, and The Garden Island features an additional story on Wilcox Health.

Both editions also include honorary messages from Gov. Josh Green, MD, and Dennis Francis, president and publisher Oahu Publications Inc., along with an article profiling the history of National Nurses Week.

This year, National Nurses Week celebrates the theme “Nurses Make the Difference,” which honors the incredible nurses nationwide who embody the spirit of compassion and care in every health care setting. At Hawaii Pacific Health, it is an opportunity to celebrate our nurses’ commitment and compassion for our mission to create a healthier Hawaii.
