The Queen’s Medical Center is the first hospital in the United States founded by royalty. It was established in 1859 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV to address the health care needs of the people of Hawaii during a time when epidemics were sweeping the islands. Queen Emma and King Kamehameha went door-to-door to personally raise money to build the hospital, which was named The Queen’s Hospital. Through this effort, the couple was able to open a temporary structure in 1859, and a year later, opened a two-story facility, which was built on the present site.
Today, The Queen’s Health Systems is a nonprofit family of hospitals and health-related entities. Established in 1985, the system provides expanded health care services and programs to the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Basin.
From health care firsts that we were privileged to lead, to the innovative services we provide, to the significant local and national partnerships we helped forge, caring for Hawaii is at the heart of what we do. It’s both our legacy and our future.
