Pōhai Mālama a Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Care Center an Inpatient Hospice Home for Hawai‘i Island -
The new 14,140 square foot medicare-certified home provides the comfort of short-term care for patients whose pain, symptoms and special needs require a more acute level of hospice care than is possible at home. This facility will also provide for individuals who are not able to receive hospice care at their residence.
The 12 room facility has space to build out for additional rooms and is projected to serve about 300 patients a year. In addition to inpatient hospice care, the new facility will allow Hospice of Hilo to offer palliative (comfort) care.

Hospice of Hilo has assembled a Capital Campaign committee to raise funds for the construction and operation of the facility. So far, the committee has raised $9.9 million towards its $10 million goal! but there is still work to be done. The remaining $100,000 is critical to enable Hospice of Hilo to address the remaining construction and operation start-up costs. Hospice of Hilo asks the community to consider making a gift and take the Capital Campaign over its $10 million goal! To view how you can help, please view the donation page.
