Maui Memorial Medical Center to address state of health care

WAILUKU, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Maui Memorial Medical Center will be hosting a public meeting on Wednesday, July 23 at 5 p.m. to address the state of healthcare in Maui County.

Officials from Maui County's state hospital facilities, which include Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC), Kula Hospital and Lanai Community Hospital, will address the current state of the public healthcare system and the subsequent challenges that threaten care to the islands’ communities. Officials will also present a proposed plan to address the anticipated $13 million budget shortfall and long-term solutions to improve the healthcare system over time.

“Healthcare as a business has changed. And while we remain steadfast in our mission to provide the highest quality of care to our patients, the healthcare environment is forcing us to reevaluate our operations,” Maui region chief executive officer of Hawaii Health System Corporation, Wesley Lo said. “We feel its important to educate our community on where we are, where we want to be, and most importantly get feedback on how we plan to get there before we make any decisions.”

The meeting will be held in the MMMC auditorium where attendees may ask questions and provide testimony. Limited street and valet parking is available. For more information, please call Mahie Wong at (808) 249-0484 or email info@mauimemorialmedical.org.
