Renovation Project Temporarily Relocates Emergency Department Entrance  

Kona Community Hospital (KCH) has begun a construction project to renovate and expand our Emergency Department (ED).

As of July 8, the old Admitting Department and Emergency Triage walk-in areas will be closed. The ambulance bay will remain open to ambulance traffic only.  

A temporary ED Triage area has been set up on the ground floor through the hospital’s new MAIN ENTRANCE, located at the Kailua (north) end of the building, between the radiation oncology clinic and the hospital.  

The Emergency Department patient parking has been relocated to the new main entrance area. Signage is in place for these parking stalls.  

The KCH Emergency Department sees roughly 21,000 patients annually. The current location has been constrained by its size for a number of years. The expansion of the ED will shorten patient waiting times, and improve efficiency in the triage area.  

At KCH, we strive to provide customer-focused, quality-driven care to our community. This construction project is part of an on-going effort to maintain and improve our facility.  

We sincerely appreciate the community’s patience while this exciting renovation is in process.  

Kona Community Hospital receives Capital Improvement Project (CIP) monies from the State, which enables facility renovations such as this expansion/renovation project. Capital Improvement Project funding is restricted to maintenance and facility improvement projects, and cannot be used for day to day hospital operations.   

We’re very grateful to our State Legislators for their efforts to obtain CIP funding from the State.

Please note:  The Kona Community Hospital emergency department will continue to be open throughout the renovation and expansion project.
