State CIP Funds Released for Construction of Administrative Offices at Kohala Hospital
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – Governor David Ige has released State Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funds totaling $500,000 to finance the construction of centralized administrative offices at Kohala Hospital, Hawaiʻi.
"This funding is extremely timely, as during COVID-19 we have had to adjust our procedures to accommodate social distancing," said Gino Amar, Administrator of Kohala Hospital. "This will allow us to provide more administrative staff areas, as we continue to address the new normal."
The additional administrative and business office will create a more comfortable, efficient working environment for Kohala Hospital's staff, allowing them to better serve patients.
"I am very glad that this project has received the necessary funding to move forward with construction," says Rep. David Tarnas (North & South Kohala, North Kona). "Support for our health care facilities and providers is of the utmost importance, and I look forward to this important project progressing."
