THE QUEEN'S MEDICAL CENTER
To fulfill the intent of Queen Emma
and King Kamehameha IV to provide
in perpetuity quality health care
services to improve the well-being of
Native Hawaiians and all of the
people of Hawai‘i.
"But let me remind you that so long as sickness shall exist, there will be a duty imposed upon us."
- King Kamehameha IV
July 17, 1860
The Queen's Medical Center (Queen's), a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation established in 1859 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, is an acute care medical facility accredited by The Joint Commission. Queen's is the largest private, non-profit, acute health care facility, with a staff of over 7,000 dedicated to providing the highest quality health care to the people of Hawai‘i and the Pacific.
Queen's is licensed for 535 acute beds and 28 sub-acute beds and serves as the major tertiary and quaternary referral center for cancer, cardiovascular disease, neuroscience, orthopedics, surgery, emergency medicine and behavioral health medicine. It is the state's designated trauma center verified as Level II by the American College of Surgeons. Additionally, Queen's has the only organ transplantation program in Hawai‘i. Queen's is also a major teaching hospital, serving as a clinical training site for the residency programs sponsored by the John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawai‘i. Consequently, Queen's is the only hospital in Hawai‘i to achieve Magnet® status – the highest institutional honor for hospital excellence – from the American Nurses Credentialing Center and to be named "Best Hospital in Hawai‘i" by the US News & World Report, for the fifth year in a row.
For over 157 years, Queen's has remained Hawai‘i's health care leader, meeting the communities health care needs from 1859 to today and into the future.
