Hawaii Pacific Health Donor Reports Spring 2016 - Page 3

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT & CEO RAY VARA Aloha, At Hawai‘i Pacific Health we are transforming health care as we know it today by partnering with physicians, health plans and the community. In the process, we are building teams centered around patients to provide them with the highest quality health care possible. Donors like you play a vital role in our ability to achieve this goal. Thanks to your support, we are expanding our services statewide – be it with a new interventional cardiac catheterization unit at Pali Momi Medical Center, a new breast tomosynthesis machine at Wilcox Memorial Hospital, or expanding our cardiovascular and orthopedic services at Straub Clinic & Hospital. In July 2016, we will be opening our new state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) building at Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children. In the months ahead, you will see and hear about other initiatives we have planned designed to transform the way we deliver health care. Your support has been and continues to be critical to this effort. Thank you for your generosity. You are helping us create a healthier Hawai‘i for individuals, families and communities today and for generations to come. Sincerely, Ray Vara President & CEO Hawai‘i Pacific Health 1
