Hawaii Health Systems Corp. Requests Emergency State Funding

Public-owned Hawaii Health Systems Corp. is seeking emergency funds from state lawmakers to stabilize two of its hospitals until January, according to a Honolulu Civil Beat report.

Lawmakers approved the funding, and they have also nearly tripled the amount, from $2.5 million to $7.3 million, according to the report. In addition, HHSC is expected to ask lawmakers for a $20 million appropriation in January for the entire system.

However, some have criticized HHSC, saying they have not had a solvent financial plan for several years. HHSC Acting President and CEO Alice Hall said the system may have to look into a private-public deal to keep the system viable, according to the report.
