Queens' to open new campus; KMC to break ground on tower
The Queen's Medical Center West O'ahu campus will open and accept patients starting on May 20 of this year.
The facility is located on the former Hawaii Medical Center West campus. Services will include an emergency room, inpatient and outpatient surgery, imaging, cardiology and specialty clinics. The hospital will have 80 beds, which will later increase to 135 beds.
The Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children will break ground Wednesday.
The new $120 million dollar hospital tower will replace the old Bingham parking garage, which had been demolished over the past three months.
The new five-story tower will house 70 state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care units, 24 more beds than before, and add square footage to its current 14 pediatric intensive care units.
