Hawaii Healthcare Heroes

Who is your Hawaii Healthcare Hero?

A Hawaii Healthcare Hero is an extraordinary healthcare worker who went above and beyond to care for you or a loved one in a way that you’ll always remember.

Who is your Hawaii Healthcare Hero? Was it…

  • The ER worker who saved your keiki’s life?
  • The nursing home aide who patiently fed your dad during the confusion of his dementia?
  • The hospice worker who eased your grandma’s distress?
  • The hospital housekeeper who smiled at you day after day when you really needed it?
  • The nurse who came to your home to help you recover after your stroke?
  • The medical equipment provider who came in on a Sunday so you could be discharged from the hospital with your wheelchair?
  • The paramedic who re-started your heart?
  • The dialysis nurse who has helped to keep you alive?
  • Or the physical therapist who helped you heal after your accident?
