NHCH Celebrates 5 Years with QHS

Queen’s has a long history with North Hawaii Community Hospital, dating back to a 1991 $1 million contribution toward construction costs. The hospital welcomed the first patient in 1996 and became clinically affiliated with The Queen’s Health Systems in 2005. In 2014, NHCH officially became a part of the QHS family. The five-year anniversary was recently commemorated with the planting of a koai‘a tree, a symbol of strength and long life, on the front lawn. Entertainment and a staff luncheon rounded out the celebration.
