2024 Straub Benioff Medical Center Groundbreaking Ceremony

On May 16, 2024, Hawaii Pacific Health (HPH) marked a milestone by celebrating the start of construction on the first phase of the multiyear Straub Benioff Medical Center Redevelopment project. The commemorative ceremony included HPH and Straub Benioff physicians and leaders, state and city officials, and longstanding philanthropists Lynne and Marc Benioff, who donated $100 million toward the redevelopment project. Marc is the chair, CEO and co-founder of Salesforce. The Benioffs’ transformational gift is the largest donation to HPH and one of the largest single private donations in Hawaii history. The groundbreaking ceremony, in celebration of the health care campus of the future, was held where the new 1,600-stall parking building will be located. Here are some of the moments of the inspiring ceremony.
