The Queen’s Health System and Wahiawa General Hospital Enter Into Agreement

News release from Queen’s Health System, November 4, 2023

The Queen’s Health System, corporate parent of The Queen’s Medical Center, announced today that it has officially entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Wahiawa General Hospital. This agreement will allow Queen’s to formalize the purchase of WGH scheduled for March 31, 2024.

“Queen’s remains mindful and dedicated to our mission to provide quality health services that improves the well-being of Native Hawaiians and all the people of Hawaii,” said  Jill Hoggard Green, PhD, RN, President and CEO of The Queen’s Health System.   “Queen’s has served its mission for over 160 years. We dedicate ourselves to the people of Central Oahu and the North Shore with the same standard of excellence that our founders envisioned.”

The specific nature of any affiliation between Queen’s and Wahiawa General will be determined and announced after  due diligence is completed.  That process is expected to take between 90 to 120 days.

“We are very encouraged about a formal affiliation with The Queen’s Health System,” said Brian Cunningham. CEO of Wahiawa General Hospital.  “Queen’s has consistently been very supportive of the needs of Wahiawa General Hospital and our community over the years.  Affiliating with Queen’s will dramatically improve our ability to fulfill our mission:  Improving the Health status of the people of Central Oahu and the North Shore.”

Wahiawa General Hospital was opened in 1957 by the Wahiawa Hospital Association. It is a Not-for-profit hospital, serving Central O‘ahu and the North Shore. Current Services include acute care, Emergency Department and outpatient services.

Queen’s’ goal is to maintain the highest quality of patient care as it evaluates the facility and services at WGH. The initial focus for the March 31, 2024 scheduled purchase date will be to further strengthen the Emergency Department and diagnostic services which serve the needs of Wahiawa, Central Oahu and the North Shore. As part of Queen’s, patients will receive better access to Queen’s physicians and specialists. In time, Queen’s will bring additional services and modern buildings based on the healthcare needs of the community.

Both Queen’s and Wahiawa General Hospital are committed to a seamless transition. As construction begins and services are evaluated, both parties will do their best to ensure the least amount of disruption to employees. Although the specifics are unknown,  information will be shared with employees as it becomes available.
