About Queen’s Medical Center – West Oahu
Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu opened on May 20, 2014. Previously, the hospital was run by the Sisters of St. Francis for 20 years after the Estate of James Campbell provided the land. Dr. Paul N Morton provides specialty and general orthopedic care along with coverage for trauma. Inpatient, clinical and surgical services are provided in-house.
Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu is currently undergoing a major renovation project to provide improved services for orthopedics, sports medicine, spine, pediatrics, general surgery, cardiology, and other services. Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu serves the West side of Oahu, including communities in Waipahu, Mililani, Waianae, Ewa Beach, Halawa, Kapolei, Waipio, Wahiawa, Pearl City, Makakilo, and Aiea.
The Queen’s Health System is the first hospital network in Hawai’i to achieve Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This recognition is provided to hospitals that provide quality patient care and innovations in nursing practice. The Joint Commission provides the Queen’s Health System with the first award for Advanced Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification in Hawai’i. 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.
Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu is a Blue Zones Project certified work-site. This is an initiative sponsored by Hawai’i Medical Service Association (HMSA) to bring healthy habits into the workplace and the community.
