Two major hospitals on Oʻahu are planning to expand their facilities
Two major hospitals on Oʻahu are planning to expand their facilities.
Straub Medical Center in Honolulu and Queen’s Medical Center West Oʻahu presented Thursday their 15-year master plans in front of the Committee on Zoning and Planning.
Straub Medical Center plans to expand its 3.44 acres campus to 5.09 acres.
The Queen's Medical Center West Oʻahu plans to remove existing buildings to add new buildings with a higher floor plan.
Councilmember Esther Kiaʻāina recommends both Queen’s and Hawaiʻi Pacific Health to continue community engagement — especially with Native Hawaiian organizations who specialize in iwi kūpuna.
"(I) highly recommend that you also engage in the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the Oʻahu Island Burial Council," she said.
