The Queen's Health Systems Honored at the 2018 Queen Emma Ball

St. Andrew's Schools honored The Queen's Health Systems at the 2018 Queen Emma Ball held on Thursday, May 3, 2018 for their commitment to its mission set forth by their founders King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma to provide in perpetuity, quality health care services to improve the well-being of Native Hawaiians and all the people of Hawai'i.

Over 158 years after its founding, The Queen's Health Systems continues to deliver safe health care of the highest quality while developing new and better ways of serving the needs of the people of Hawai'i. Most recently, The Queen's Health Systems welcomed North Hawai'i Community Hospital and The Queen's Medical Center – West O'ahu into its family of companies. Other greatly needed medical services were also adopted, such as organ transplantation, and caring for the health of the homeless. Today, The Queen's Health Systems' mission extends to four hospitals and 70 health care centers and labs throughout Hawai'i, Guam, and Saipan.

"The Queen's Health Systems inspires us to live and practice the values of our common founder Queen Emma, who was a transformational thinker and leader," said Ruth R. Fletcher, head of school at St. Andrew's Schools. "As living legacies of Queen Emma, we both value intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual wholeness."

More than 550 guests gathered at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel to enjoy performances by extraordinary talented St. Andrew's Schools students. The honoree award was accepted by Art Ushijima, President and CEO of The Queen's Health Systems.
