Welcome to Kona Community Hospital

Kona Community Hospital is Preparing for the Future

Kona Community Hospital (KCH) recently launched a performance improvement initiative to align the hospital’s long-term strategic goals with future planning.  KCH has partnered with Huron Healthcare in this initiative, called Preparing for the Future.

In 2012, hospital leadership defined its top three primary strategic goals as:

      •  Recruit and retain physicians 
      •  Build a culture of process improvement
      •  Need for a replacement hospital


The Preparing for the Future Initiative is another in a series of progressive initiatives that are focused on aligning the hospital with these goals.

Increasing challenges in the healthcare environment are not unique.  Hospitals nationwide are struggling with the expense of federal healthcare reform, under-reimbursements from government programs (Medicare and Medicaid) and third-party payers, as well as new government regulations and laws.  As a member of the West Hawaii Region of Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, Kona Community Hospital has the additional expense of recently implemented electronic medical records system as well as labor and benefits costs that approach 80% of net revenue.  As a result, the present health care model is unsustainable.
