HONOLULU -

The Queen's Medical Center is another step closer to taking over the former Hawaii Medical Center West in Ewa.

The State Health Department has determined that the $73 million proposal to buy and renovate the West Oahu hospital is now eligible for administrative review.

In addition to acquiring the land and building assets, Queen's is proposing to invest $52 million in facilities renovation and equipment before opening the hospital.

Hawaii Medical Center West closed in December.

If approved, construction could start this December.  If it does, the hospital is scheduled to open by August 2013.
