Help Us Build the Future for Our Keiki
Caring for a child means caring for the family. Yet, limited space has made it hard for parents to remain with their child overnight. That’s why it’s critical that we expand Kapi‘olani – so parents will never have to leave their child’s bedside again.

Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children is a nonprofit hospital dedicated to delivering exceptional and often life-saving medical care to women and children right here in Hawai‘i. This remarkable care is provided in a facility that needs to expand to better accommodate 21st century medical advances. A renovation and expansion is long overdue and essential to the healthy future of Hawai‘i’s most precious resource – its children. But we can’t do it alone. Please give to support this important project. With its $30 million goal, The Campaign for Hawai'i's Children is the largest philanthropic effort in Hawai'i for the health care of our keiki and is focused on the first phase of a multi-phased renewal of Kapi'olani.
On April 12, the Bank of Hawaii Foundation presented Kapi‘olani with a check for $100,000. The gift was especially meaningful because one of Bank of Hawaii's own employees experienced the critical care that only Kapi‘olani can provide. In 2010, Cody Sugai, the son of Bank of Hawaii vice president of Corporate Business Continuity, Scott Sugai, was rushed to Kapi‘olani's emergency room with an excruciating headache. Doctors found that he had bleeding in his brain. He was in a coma for over two weeks and spent months at Kapi‘olani recovering. At the event, Scott and Cody thanked Bank of Hawaii for their support during such challenging times and thanked Kapi‘olani for the excellent care provided throughout Cody's medical journey.
