Queen’s Health System Takes Over Wahiawa General Hospital: Plans to Invest in Emergency Department Renovation

Hawaii hospital acquired by The Queen’s Health System

The Queen’s Health System in Honolulu has recently acquired Wahiawa General Hospital in Hawaii. This acquisition was the result of an asset purchase agreement that was reached in November, and involved the participation of the nonprofit hospital’s board, providers, administration, and employees.

Wahiawa General Hospital had to temporarily close its emergency department on March 18 due to issues with the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. However, the Queen’s Health System has plans to invest in renovating and strengthening the Emergency Department and diagnostic services right away. With Queen’s Medical Center – Wahiawa being the closest emergency department for residents in Wahiawa, Central O’ahu, and the North Shore, this renovation is a top priority. The goal is to reopen the ED this summer.

The acquisition of Wahiawa General Hospital by The Queen’s Health System means that residents will now have access to more providers, services and specialists. In fact, The Queen’s Health System has made employment offers to nearly 100 Wahiawa General Hospital employees. Existing hospital employees are also being encouraged to explore opportunities within the broader health system.
