The system serves as a leading referral center in Hawai'i and the Pacific Basin.

This certification recognizes excellence when following national guidelines as set by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and optimal outcomes following hip and knee replacement surgeries. The Queen's Health System is the only hospital network in the state of Hawai'i that provides a Level I trauma center.
