Oahu Hawaii Military Hospital to Serve Civilians

Real Estate Agent with Hawaii Military Realty, Inc.

Tripler Army Medical Center on the island of Oahu in Hawaii will soon service civilian trauma patients in approximately the next 6 months.  Currently, Tripler Army Medical Center is only used to service Military and Department of Defense (DOD) employees.  The new plan will have Tripler Army Medical Center stabilize trauma patients from Waianae to Aiea until they can be transported to Queens Hospital in Honolulu.  This new service at Tripler Army Medical Center will be a great help after the closing of Hawaii Medical Center West in Ewa Beach in Dec 2011.

A lot of the doctors, nurses and support staff from Tripler have experience in combat from Iraq and Afghanistan and will be a great asset to serving the civilians on Oahu who require life or death emergency treatment.

Hi~ my husband is retired AF, 100% VA disabled, cannot stand or walk.  We will be visiting a daugter/husband, living in Hawaii.  We will be bringing his electric Go-Go scooter.  However, somtimes a manual wheelchair works better in some places.  Do you know if any of the hospitals or VA centers have one available for our use while there?  Or perhaps thru any of the veteran organizations?  We will be there Feb. 17 thru March 8.  Thank you for any info you can provide.

Aloha Pat.  I suggest you call the Spark Matsunaga VA Medical Center which is adjacent to the Tripler Army Medical Center.  They might be able to help.  If not, please let me know if you werent able to get one and I will try to help you find one.  You can either call or email me.  Good luck and I hope you enjoy your trip!

David, Has the VA hospital issue affected service in Hawaii? Long wait times on mainland so I wonder if that same situation is experienced in your state.

No idea Wayne. I use the hospital over at Tripler and very rarely go the VA clinic myself.
