Pali Momi Medical Center recognized its staff Tuesday for helping to fill the void that was left behind after Hawaii Medical Center West closed 875 days ago. Since then, the hospital said it saw a 30-percent increase in volume.

Hospital’s leadership thanked the staff for their hard work and dedication.

“Pali Momi helped fill the void by expanding services in any way it was necessary to positively impact the needs of our community,” said CEO Jen Chahanovich. “Everyone who works here contributed and I can’t say enough about our personal commitment to put patients first.”

The hospital made several changes to accommodate the increase in patients, including adding 10 more beds, converting the physician dining room and lounge areas into additional treatment rooms, and building a Transitional Care Unit for observation and to discharge patients.
