On June 10th, 2015, Governor Ige signed a bill that allows Maui Region facilities including Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC), Kula Hospital and Lanai Community Hospital to partner with a private healthcare system. The purpose of such private-public partnership is to bring much needed financial support, resources and therefore better quality care and expanded services to Maui County.
The meeting will also provide an update on status of partnership pursuit and answer questions on the potential transition.
