Maui Memorial receives $50,000 grant
Article From: MauiWeekly
First Hawaiian Bank Foundation recently awarded a $50,000 grant to the Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) Foundation to support MMMC’s new Heart Brain & Vascular Center.
With the launching of MMMC’s “24/7” Heart Brain & Vascular Center, the stress, anxiety and travel costs for countless Maui patients have been eliminated, as Maui residents no longer need to travel to O‘ahu for procedures such as angioplasty or open heart surgery. In addition, patients’ families no longer have to take time off from work, find child care or make other arrangements in order to travel with and care for their sick family member. But most of all, providing these critical services here on Maui saves lives.
“First Hawaiian Bank appreciates the opportunity to partner with Maui Memorial Medical Center Foundation to support this fundraising campaign to dramatically improve and expand healthcare services for Maui,” said FHB Foundation President Sharon Shiroma Brown.
The MMMC Foundation recently embarked on a $2 million “SEED” Campaign to support “space, equipment, education, and delivery” of improved healthcare services for Maui. The campaign will focus on providing additional space for the new cardiovascular team, continuing education for clinical staff to improve quality and delivery of healthcare, and new state-of-the-art equipment, which will allow Maui residents to receive the best possible treatments.
