Rep. Pine Urges Queen's to Expedite Restoration of Emergency Room Services at HMC-West Facility

News Release from Rep Kym Pine

HONOLULU – Rep. Kymberly Marcos Pine issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement that The Queen’s Medical Center has been approved to purchase the former Hawaii Medical Center-West facility:

“It is great news for the Leeward Coast that the process is moving forward to resume medical care to the hospital. I welcome Queen’s to our community and look forward to the new owners restoring services as quickly as is safely possible. For the sake of our people, I ask Queen’s to do everything in its power to especially expedite the process of reopening the facility's emergency room portion. The Leeward Coast simply can’t afford another year of compromised emergency services.”

The Queen's Medical Center announced earlier this month that it plans to have the entire facility reopened in August 2013.

In January, Rep. Pine took part in a legislative hearing chaired by Senator Josh Green regarding the hospital closure, during which Hawaii Pacific Health pledged that it would move to reopen the emergency room immediately if it were to be the purchaser of the facility. She urges The Queen’s Medical Center to make the same pledge.
