Neonatal intensive care unit needed on Maui

A viewpoint from Feb.14 states that Maui Health System is for everyone. Yes, everyone except newborns who are sick or premature. Kaiser is blocking Maui from having a neonatal intensive care unit in favor of their Oahu facility NICU. We do not have many Hawaiians walking this Earth! We need to protect every single Hawaiian born. We need to have instant care available for all babies born on Maui. The faster an infant is in the care of neonatal doctors and nurses, the better they will do. Kaiser, Maui Memorial, build a NICU!
