Capital Improvement Project Funding for Hawaii Health Systems Corporation

I am pleased to announce that Governor David Ige’s administration has released Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funding for Hawai‘i Health Systems Corporation, to fund construction and equipment costs for renovation, acquisition, and installation of radiology equipment in the East Hawai‘i Region (Hilo Medical Center, Hale Hoola Hamakua, and Kau Hospital).

Amount Released: $3,000,000.

Thank you Governor Ige for your efforts on Senate District 2’s behalf.

Projects such as these are critical components of the public infrastructure and contribute to building a better home for our kupuna, keiki, and all the residents of Hawai‘i.
