Hawaii hospital acquired by The Queen’s Health System

Wahiawa General Hospital has been acquired by the Queen’s Health System in Honolulu, following an asset purchase agreement that was entered into last November. The nonprofit hospital’s board, providers, administration, and employees all played a role in the acquisition.

On March 18, Wahiawa General Hospital temporarily closed its emergency department due to issues with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. However, Queen’s Medical Center – West Oahu has now announced that they plan 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 residents of Wahiawa, Central O’ahu, and the North Shore.

The Queen’s Health System aims to reopen the ED this summer and provide the community with improved access to healthcare services. The acquisition will bring benefits to the community through increased access to providers, services, and specialists. Queen’s has extended employment offers to nearly 100 Wahiawa General Hospital employees and is encouraging existing hospital employees to explore opportunities within the health system. This acquisition is a significant step towards enhancing healthcare services in the region.
