The Queen’s Medical Center – Punchbowl

More than 150 years ago, Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV dedicated their time and resources to establish a hospital that would care for the health needs of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawaii. Today, The Queen’s Medical Center carries on the mission of its Founders by delivering high-quality and compassionate health care services. You can help continue the King and Queen’s legacy with a gift to The Queen’s Medical Center. Learn more about the available gift designations below.

Area of Greatest Need

One of the most valuable ways to give to Queen’s is to donate to the Area of Greatest Need. This allows the hospital to identify areas of need that are not being addressed with other campaign efforts.

These needs may include new equipment, expansion of services to a particular segment of the population, or investment in technology that is not otherwise being funded.

Donating to the Area of Greatest Need allows the hospital to respond quickly and efficiently to community needs as they arise.

Comfort Dogs

The Queen's Medical Center - Punchbowl is the fortunate recipient of two certified Comfort Dogs trained by Assistance Dogs of Hawaii, a nonprofit organization that provides hospitals as well as  children and adults with disabilities with professionally trained dogs. Ipo, a white labrador, and Yoda, a white golden retriever, are assigned respectively to our Orthopedics and Oncology units. Led by a nurse manager, Ipo and Yoda ease and comfort those who are hospitalized or are receiving difficult treatments and other therapies. 

Scientific research has shown that a patient's interaction with an animal can provide positive physical and emotional benefits. Visits from Ipo and Yoda help optimize the care environment for our patients.

Benefits of pet visitation include encouraging patients to:

  • Forget their discomfort or pain
  • Interact more with others
  • Improve their mood and interactions with family and staff
  • Participate in physical, occupational and speech therapy
  • Complete tasks that may be a struggle, such as eating, taking medication, moving or walking

Handlers who care for Ipo and Yoda are staffed by Queen's. Additional funding would help defray their daily upkeep costs and ensure a greater reach to patients in need.

The Queen's Medical Center's Emergency Department (ED) and Level I Trauma Center are at the frontline of medicine, treating a range of patients and illnesses, from a child’s broken arm to an elderly stroke patient, victims of a car accident, to widespread health epidemics such as influenza. The ED and Trauma Center provides statewide emergency care when needed most.

The Queen's ED and Trauma Center is the busiest in the state, with more than 66,000 emergency visits a year, including over 2,600 trauma patients.
