Hawai‘i to Receive Over $500K for Medical Training
U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today, Friday, Dec. 8, 2017, that the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration will award Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children $514,532 to fund training for medical residents.
“As a teaching hospital, Kapiolani is a valuable place for new doctors to learn how to provide quality care,” said Sen. Schatz. “This funding ensures that the center can continue its good work preparing the next generation of medical professionals to deliver the best care possible to families in our state.”
The funding announced today is being awarded under HRSA’s Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Payment Program, which helps children’s hospitals maintain their graduate medical education programs that train resident physicians and dentists.
Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit hospital with more than 1,500 employees and 630 physicians that has served as one of Hawai‘i’s leaders in the care of women, infants, and children since its founding.
