Contributing to the Health of Our Community

Monsanto Hawaii recently donated $20,000 to the new Queen’s Medical Center – West O‘ahu located in Ewa Beach.

Recently opened on May 20, 2014, the hospital offers essential healthcare services to one of the state’s fastest growing communities. In the first seven days, Queen’s Medical Center – West O‘ahu received 940 emergency room visits and 126 inpatient admissions.

“The Monsanto Fund’s generous gift makes it possible for Queen’s to grow in the community,” said Susan Murray, senior vice president of The Queen’s Health Systems, West Oahu Region, and chief operating officer of The Queen’s Medical Center – West O‘ahu. “We recently held a fourth job fair in eight months. This means more residents can work closer to home and enjoy a better quality of life. For the community, it means even greater access to health care. It is our privilege to provide these services to the people of West Oahu.”

Located on Fort Weaver Road in Ewa Beach, the Queen’s Medical Center – West O‘ahu campus offers newly renovated facilities and quality, state-of-the-art healthcare services which include an emergency room, inpatient and outpatient surgery, imaging, cardiology and specialty clinics. Currently the hospital has 80 beds, which will increase up to 135 beds as volume increases.

“As the philanthropic arm of Monsanto, the Fund is focused on one goal: improving communities around us,” said John Purcell, business and technology lead for Monsanto Hawaii. “We are very proud to support The Queen’s Medical Center’s efforts to expand much-needed health care services to residents in West O‘ahu.”
