Kaiser inks lease agreement with Hawaii Health Systems Corp.

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente is one step closer to taking over three hospitals from Hawaii Health Systems Corp., a state-funded hospital network based in Honolulu.

In January, the HHSC board signed an agreement transferring operation and management of the three facilities — Maui Medical Center, Kula Hospital & Clinic and Lanai Community Hospital — from the state to Kaiser. Signing the transfer agreement allowed Kaiser to begin working toward assuming responsibility for the hospitals.

Last week, Hawaii Gov. David Ige announced HHSC entered a lease agreement with Maui Health Systems, which is part of Kaiser, according to Maui Now.

With the agreement in place, Kaiser is scheduled to take over operations of the three hospitals July 1.
