HONOLULU, Hawai‘i (January 7, 2015) – Hawai‘i Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) Maui Region facilities - which include Maui Memorial Medical Center, Kula Hospital and Lāna‘i Community Hospital - have continued partnership discussions with Hawai‘i Pacific Health. In an effort to help resolve the financial shortfalls which could cripple cruc­ial services to area hospitals, HHSC Maui Region seeks to engage in formal talks with Hawai‘i Pacific Health. This action requires legislative remedy in order for both parties to make any official plans.
