After more than two years of planning, North Hawai’i Community Hospital pharmacy staff has moved into a new location within the hospital. Prior to the move in, employees joined together in a blessing by Kahu Billy Mitchell and NHCH Board of Trustees member.  President Cindy Kamikawa and Pharmacy Director Anthony Fazio welcomed employees and Liana Honda, Native Hawaiian health manager presented a Hawaiian oli/chant.

 

The new pharmacy is not open to the public but instead serves all of the pharmacy needs of patients staying overnight at the hospital.  

 

“The new pharmacy provides us with more space and upgraded technology, offering enhanced safety for both patients and staff,” said Pharmacy Director Anthony Fazio.  “In addition, the new pharmacy will assure that we are ready for new regulations related to pharmaceuticals and medication in the future.”

 

“The completion of this project reflects the commitment of The Queen’s Health Systems to the provision of quality care to the people of North Hawai’i,” said Cindy Kamikawa, RN, and President of North Hawaii Community Hospital. 

The last significant renovation project at North Hawai’i Community Hospital was the MRI suite in 2001.
