Ways Your Support Helps

As a not-for-profit medical center, Straub Benioff Medical Center relies on the community to fulfill its mission of creating a healthier Hawaii. Generous donors play a vital role in helping us provide exceptional health care, whether it’s at our 159-bed facility in Honolulu or across our network of neighborhood clinics throughout the state.

In 2024, longstanding philanthropists and Hawaii residents Marc and Lynne Benioff made one of the largest single private donations in Hawaii’s history. Hawaii Pacific Health received $100 million — the largest donation to HPH — to support the Straub Benioff Medical Center Redevelopment project, which will create a health care campus of the future.

“Hawaii is our home. It's where we have decided to raise our children," Marc said at a ceremony to mark the start of construction on May 16, 2024. "We need to do more to improve access to the highest quality care for everyone, where they need it and when they need it.

"We are honored to support this project to build an incredible health care campus of the future."

The new campus, renamed to recognize the Benioffs’ generous gift, is being designed with flexibility in mind, which will allow HPH to adjust to the changing needs of patients, health care providers and growing communities. Once the multiyear project is completed, the new Straub Benioff campus will be 700,000 square feet, nearly triple the size of the current facility.

Your donations make programs and services possible now and for future generations. Our dedicated funding opportunities channel your gifts to the areas you care about most.

Burn Unit

Marking its 40th anniversary in 2023, Straub Benioff's specialized unit has treated more than 2,000 patients admitted for lifesaving and limb-preserving procedures, intricate wound assessment and other specialized treatment since it opened in 1983. Patients in the Burn Unit, the only one of its kind in the Pacific Region, receive outstanding personalized attention, delivered through our multidisciplinary team approach. Without this resource, patients in Hawaii and across the Pacific Rim would have no option for care without transport to the mainland, which is not a viable option for many patients. Your support helps us to provide this much needed care.

Emergency Services

Straub Benioff's Emergency Department serves over 35,000 patients annually with a team led by 16 physicians board certified in emergency medicine. Since 1973, Straub Benioff has been prepared to provide aid to acute injuries and illnesses when a rapid response can be the difference between life and death. Gifts to the Emergency Department will allow us to update the existing facility to improve patient access and flow. Funding is also invested in the technology, training and resources needed to continue serving our community with excellent care 24/7.
