REHAB started in 1953 as a small department within Kauikeolani Children's Hospital. It was orginally housed in two Quonset huts in the back portion of the Kuakini Street property. Today, the campus is home to the main hospital and its Nuuanu Clinic.
The hospital is currently going through the biggest renovation in its history. REHAB is rebuilding its facility to be the best resource for the people of Hawaii. The hospital is poised to handle healthcare challenges in the future.
You can see for yourself just how much the hospital has changed. We concentrated on renovating the patient care areas first. Two of the three patient floors are complete, with the last floor slated to open to patients by the end of this year. Here are a few of the new features:
Expanded team/nursing stations for staff efficiency.
Alternating ten feet flooring grades to show therapy progress in patient's mobility.
Dedicated family activity rooms.
Dedicated patient dining rooms.
New semi-private rooms and more private rooms.
Modernized therapy gym and equipment on each patient care floor.
As you can see, this is an extensive renovation. None of this would be possible without your support. Thank you for your generous contributions to REHAB. We hope you take the opportunity to join us in celebrating our 60th Anniversary!
