HONOLULU – Chronicling the journey of COVID-19 from the beginning until the present, The Queen’s Health System presents “The Queen’s Journey: COVID-19 in Hawaii” which will be proudly broadcast on Hawaii News Now.
The hour-long documentary takes a look back at the major events of COVID-19 at Queen’s since the virus arrived in Hawaii. Through interviews with grateful patients who successfully battled the virus inside the hospital, to caregivers who were at the bedside providing care and compassion through the darkest of days, the documentary seeks to tell the stories of how the virus impacted everyone at Queen’s.
“This is a powerful documentary which takes a look at the bravery, sacrifices, dedication, and compassionate care that our Queen’s ‘ohana have displayed since the beginning of this pandemic,” said Jill Hoggard Green, PhD, RN, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Queen’s Health System. “We thank them for everything they have done to help care for and keep our community safe. Together, working alongside our government officials and with the help of everyone in our community doing their part, we have been able to move forward on this journey and overcome the challenges we faced. I firmly believe our founders Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV would be extremely proud of our efforts of continuing to provide high quality care to Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawaii.”
The documentary also consists of interviews with federal, state, and local leaders who have been and continue to be instrumental partners working closely with Queen’s to ensure the needs of the community are being met.
