Kahuku Medical Center is pleased to share that its recent upgrades are complete thanks to the generous $35,000 grant from the Ho‘opono Ko‘olauloa Community Foundation/ Malama Ohana. KMC was honored to be selected for this award. The Foundation found KMC’s proposed renovation project aligned with the Foundation’s mission to promote opportunities for a safe, sanitary, healthy, and livable community. “These are very exciting times for Kahuku Medical Center. Our highly trafficked Emergency room deserved a refreshed look and our hardworking Emergency medical staff is enjoying it tremendously!” says Matt Mamizuka, KMC Support Services Director.
These upgrades enhance the patient experience. Staff are also able to deliver care with greater ease and enjoyment. In the Emergency room, old linoleum tile was replaced with brand new vinyl composition tile. Walls were coated with fresh new paint. Gray Owl was selected as the paint color, accented with the color Stone Harbor, both selected for their calming and soothing effects. These colors help promote the healing process, while also creating a modern environment.
Coordinating with the Emergency room, the Campbell wing also boasts the fresh new coat of paint. Gone are the aged wallpaper and multicolored walls. Nothing but positive feedback and great compliments from patients and staff about the wonderful color scheme throughout the building.
Outside, KMC was pleased to install a brand new directional sign and Emergency sign, both of which give clearer directions to the various destinations on campus. The directional sign points visitors to KMC’s Primary care clinic, Rehab services, and campus partners Bobby Benson Center, I Ola La-hui, Kamehameha Preschool and Ko‘olauloa Health Center. The newly placed Emergency sign gives visitors greater confidence while navigating to the Emergency Room.
