Hale Makua Health Services would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who made the opening of Care Homes by Hale Makua possible this month. Staff at Hale Makua, especially on our maintenance and environmental services teams, have worked tirelessly to make renovations and adjustments to our existing facilities, transforming what was previously the Maui Neighborhood at Hale Makua Wailuku into the newly refurbished Care Homes.
Funding for renovations came partially from a grant from the County of Maui. Hale Makua Health Services staff members and volunteers were also essential in fundraising for Care Homes renovations during the Hawaii Visitor Industry Charity Walk. Finally, we would like to thank the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association for matching a portion of funds raised during the Visitor Industry Charity Walk.
Donations and grants are vital to Hale Makua's efforts to fulfill the ever-changing health care needs of our Maui community. We very much appreciate the support of the community in our mission to improve the well-being of those in our care through compassionate personalized health services in our home and yours.

Mahalo to Maui Memorial Medical Center for sending eight volunteers to help celebrate Read Across America Day with our kindergarten and 1st-grade students March 1, also known as Read Across America Day. They donated Dr. Seuss books, spent some time in each classroom reading to our students, donated certificates to each student and provided muffins donated by S&J Bakery.
The volunteers were: Dr. Kimble Poon, Dr. Les Chun, Dr. Rodney Bjordahl, Caroline Koley, Marian Horikawa-Barth, Carlayna Nakamura, Karey Kapoi and Kevin Maier, a supervisor in the cardiovascular department who read to his son's kindergarten class.
Thank you to Maui Memorial Medical Center for organizing this special event for our lucky kindergarten and 1st-grade classrooms! We are lucky to be part of such a wonderful community!
