About Us

Aloha and WelcomeAloha and Welcome

Comfort, convenience and quality care are close to home.

Our philosophy: Each person that comes through our door is treated like `Ohana.

Aloha and welcome to Kona Community Hospital’s website.

We are a 94-bed full-service acute care hospital with 24-hour emergency services, proudly serving the West Hawaii community for over 100 years. Our humbled journey began in 1914 when the original Kona Hospital was built in Kealakekua above the current Bank of Hawaii, followed by our move in 1939 to the red-roofed “old” County Courthouse with 52 beds, then bringing us to our current location where we’ve been since 1974. Every year, we update our care to include the newest medical services, allowing us to use all our abilities to serve residents and visitors whenever they are in need. Here at KCH, we consider everyone to be `Ohana, and as such, we strive to be your friend, neighbor, and family in helping you through trying times, happy moments, crisis, and celebrations. As your community hospital, you can count on us.

Our staff includes over 450 highly skilled employees and 100 medical staff practitioners, many of whom have been with our hospital for over 20 years. Along with our professional and experienced staff, we have many volunteers and affiliates that support our hospital. We are also one of the largest employers in West Hawaii.

We are a private, public benefit health care facility accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations.
