• Hospital private rooms: Headlines for a story on Page A1 Wednesday on Maui Health System eliminating extra fees for private postpartum rooms at Maui Memorial Medical Center were incorrect. Maui Memorial Medical Center previously charged extra fees for private postpartum rooms, which were increased substantially July 1. Beginning Tuesday, the fee increases for private rooms were eliminated with patients given a private room after giving birth if one is available.

The Maui News apologizes for the error.
