Kona Community Hospital seeks public input


Kona Community Hospital continues to seek the community’s input into its long-term plan to build a replacement hospital.

In October, KCH leadership announced that over the next six months, they will be launching their long-term plan to build a replacement facility. The current hospital is aging and lacks sufficient space to grow current clinical services or to add new services.

The hospital’s plan to continue to acquire state-of-the-art equipment, attract new physicians and increase efficiency will require a new, modernized physical infrastructure.

The hospital has engaged consultant, Peter Adler PhD to assist with planning issues and explore what is best for the community. Adler is currently in the process of interviewing key stakeholders in the medical and business communities for feedback and comments on the prospect of a replacement hospital.

Kona Community Hospital CEO, Jay Kreuzer is also inviting the public to provide their input.

“This is the pre-planning phase for a replacement hospital,” Kreuzer said. “KCH is a community hospital, so we’re seeking input from the entire community to help us determine what West Hawai’i needs in a hospital.”

The community survey is posted on the homepage of KCH’s website. The survey will be available for participation through the end of February 2013.

The public is invited to participate in this survey by visiting:
