Kohala Hospital is about to get an upgrade.

Governor David Ige on Monday released State Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funds totaling $500,000 to finance the construction of centralized administrative offices at Kohala Hospital on the Big Island.

“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 hopefully create a more comfortable, efficient working environment for Kohala Hospital’s staff.

“I am very glad that this project has received the necessary funding to move forward with construction,” said 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.”
