You may not think of a shopping mall as a place to receive advanced medical care. But next year, that’s exactly what’s coming to Pearl Ridge.  Pacific Business News Editor in Chief A. Kam Napier has more.

If you’ve been to Pearlridge’s Downtown phase, you may be familiar with the Ross Dress for Less location built into the ground floor of the adjacent parking garage. Expect something completely different by late 2017. The space is being redeveloped into a cancer treatment center as a joint project of Hawaii Pacific Health and the Cancer Center of Hawaii.
