State CIP Funds Released for Kohala Hospital
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – Governor David Ige has released $125,000 in State Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funds for Kohala Hospital to renovate and upgrade the cottage used for on-call staff.
Built in 1939, the cottage provides housing on-site for Emergency Room staff, an on-call laboratory technician, and occasional traveling medical staff.
“Mahalo to the Governor for releasing the funds for this important project,” says Representative David Tarnas (North & South Kohala, North Kona). “The Kohala Hospital in rural Kapa'au is a critical healthcare facility for our community. Their front-line staff are dedicated to keeping our community safe and healthy, especially during these challenging times. These Capital Improvement Project funds to support renovations and improvements at the hospital are very important, and I appreciate the Governor's support.”
