HONOLULU (KHON2) — A new kidney dialysis center is coming to Oahu.
Queen’s Health System, Kuakini Support Services, HMSA and Satellite Healthcare held a pre-construction blessing ceremony on Tuesday, Aug. 10.
The 10,000-square-foot clinic will be on the ground floor of Kuakini Health System’s “Hale Pulama Mau,” at the Kuakini Health System’s campus on Kuakini Street.
Health officials said this center is much-needed because almost one in every five people in Hawaii is affected by Kidney Disease. The facility will include 23 dialysis stations, two private isolation rooms and two home dialysis training rooms.
“This new center will provide more convenience for patients and their families. Queen’s is continuously looking for ways to deliver high-quality care in comfortable, accessible settings. Our goal is to provide dialysis patients with greater access to the services they need, so they can receive their treatments on an outpatient basis and we can improve their quality of life.”Jason Chang, chief operating officer at The Queen’s Health Systems
