Emergency Department

Emergency Department Renovation/Expansion

The Hilo Medical Center Foundation raised over one million dollars throughout our Million/Million Campaign for the much needed expansion and renovation of the Hilo Medical Center’s Emergency Department.  The Foundation’s success in gaining community support for this project attracted government backing; Governor Lingle and the State legislature approved $5,587,000.00 in funds for the project, which was completed in 2008.
