Ways Your Support Helps

As a not-for-profit medical center, Straub 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.

Straub's Burn Unit has played an essential role in treating patients from the 2023 Maui wildfires in Lahaina and Kula. On Aug. 15, 2023, the Burn Unit and its team of specially trained physicians, nurses and staff were featured in The New York Times. Read more about the story and see a PDF of the full article

Nine patients from Maui were admitted to Straub, which is the largest number of burn patients from a single event in the Unit's 40-year history. Hear the story of one patient, Judy, whose medical journey inspired her friends and family to raise money for Straub's Burn Unit.

Burn Unit

Marking its 40th anniversary in 2023, Straub'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 Hawai‘i 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's Emergency Department serves over 35,000 patients annually with a team led by 16 physicians board certified in emergency medicine. Since 1973, Straub 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.
