Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children is a nonprofit hospital dedicated to delivering exceptional medical care to women and children in Hawaii. The medical center rebuilt its flagship Punahou Street hospital and more than doubled its size.
Kapi’olani houses a new hospital tower, NICU and pediatric intensive care unit and a new parking structure. The floor area of the medical center increased from 280,000 to 600,000 square feet.
Pan-Pacific managed Phase One and all work was performed under PPM. Phase Two began in March of 2014, as the NICU and PICU units were underway. Phase two includes adding a new hospital tower, providing further space, building a 17-story parking structure, and renovating the Bingham building. At the end of its expansion, the entire non-profit hospital increased to 450,000 square feet.
Pan was chosen to handle all of the interior plumbing for this new 7-story building, including the comprehensive medical gas portion. The owners wanted hospital specialist when it came to their new high-tech medical center that included the use of Heliox for premature babies. Pan was the obvious choice with our extensive hospital portfolio. The tower consists of state-of-the-art patient rooms, exam rooms, NICU rooms, and an auditorium and training center for educational teaching purposes. The new tower also provides space for training Hawaii’s up-and-coming health care professionals.
