Proceeds to Benefit the Queen's Neuroscience Institute
This year, funds raised will support the Queen’s Neuroscience Institute. Modeled after the most highly respected and advanced medical establishments in the nation, the Neuroscience Institute serves patients suffering from strokes; brain disorders, such as epilepsy; traumatic brain injury; movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s; and, neuromuscular disorders, such as muscular dystrophy.
Due to the advanced treatment options at the Neuroscience Institute and its clinical excellence, education and outreach, research, intervention capabilities, and neuro intensive care unit, the Institute is the only comprehensive Neuroscience Institute in the state. The funds raised will help Queen’s to continue to bring state-of-the-art neuroscience health care to Hawai‘i.
Additionally, your generous support of silent auction and Illuminate...activities will be directed to the purchase of new neuroscience equipment and technology, and continuing education for nursing staff at the Institute.
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.
