CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT MONIES RELEASED TO BENEFIT KONA COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

Governor David Ige recently announced that his administration has released $1.075 million in funding for three Capital Improvement Projects at Kona Community Hospital. The funding allocations are as follows:

• $600,000 to provide design, construction, and equipment funds to renovate and upgrade the central supply room.

• $310,000 to provide construction and equipment funds to install a separate life safety electrical transfer switch.

• $165,000 to provide construction and equipment funds to install and renovate a sewer line for maintenance cottage.

“With an increased need for healthcare services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am very pleased that Kona Community Hospital (KCH) will be receiving much-needed upgrades to its facilities,” said Senator Dru Mamo Kanuha (District 3 – Kona, Ka‘ū). “KCH continues to play a critical role in West Hawaii’s response to the pandemic, including serving as a vaccination hub for our essential front-line workers and kūpuna.


I’m thankful for the collaboration of my colleagues, including Representative Nicole Lowen for advocating for projects that move our community forward during this challenging time.”
