After Losing Hospital, Ewa Beach Gets New Ambulance
By Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine @ 8:42 PM :: 6109 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12

NEW EWA BEACH AMBULANCE UNIT TO ENSURE MEDICAL HELP IN MIDST OF CLOSED HOSPITAL UNIT BLESSED TODAY AT 11 AM AT EWA VILLAGES GOLF COURSE

 

News Release from Office of Rep Kym Pine (R-Ewa)

HONOLULU – Representative Kymberly Pine who served on the State House of Representatives Health Committee after the closure of Hawaii Medical Center said the new Ewa Beach Ambulance Unit will ensure that the people of Ewa Beach and the surrounding area have crisis medical attention.

“The closure of the Hawaii Medical Center had a substantial impact on the Leeward Coast,” said Rep. Pine. “This new ambulance unit provides the much needed crisis medical attention that our community needs.”

Immediately after the closure of HMC hospitals, members of the House and Senate Health Committees acted swiftly to pass legislative bills to address the closure including allocating $1 million for an additional Ewa Beach and Nanakuli ambulance services. The committee also allocated $2 million to Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center and $1.25 million to Wahiawa General Hospital to expand and upgrade emergency departments. The legislature also allocated funds to turn HMC East into a long-term care facility and immediately allocated emergency funds to save the organ transplant program.

“Our top priority now is to provide Queen's Medical Center and the sisters of St. Francis all the tools necessary to reopen the hospital on the West Coast as soon as possible,” Rep. Pine said.

Rep. Kymberly Marcos Pine, R-District 43 (‘Ewa Beach, Iroquois Point, Pu‘uloa), serves as the Minority Floor Leader in the State House.
