Kohala Hospital’s centennial celebration and new Emergency Department (ED) blessing will both be held on Thursday, April 13. Hospital administrators are looking forward to commemorating these milestones with staff, leadership, the Kohala Hospital Charitable Foundation (KHCF) board members, volunteers and community.
The one-day event will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a reception to celebrate the hospital’s 100th year, immediately followed by a blessing of the new Emergency Department by Aunty Ilima Moiha.
Also on April 13, from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., community members are invited to view the new department. Hospital administrators and staff will be on hand to give tours of the new ED, including a triage area, a centralized nursing station and all new exam rooms with technology upgrades.
Highlighting the centennial’s theme, “Bridging Old and New,” hospital Administrator Gino Amar said, “By observing these events concurrently, Kohala Hospital is honoring our past and also transitioning into the future by modernizing the type of healthcare we’re able to provide to our community.”
