After more than two years of planning, the pharmacy staff at North Hawai’i Community Hospital moved to a new location within the hospital.

Before the move in, employees gathered for a blessing from Kahu Billy Mitchell and NHCH board members.

Hospital President and RN Cindy Kamikawa, and Pharmacy Manager Anthony Fazio greeted the employees and Liana Honda, Hawaiian Indigenous Health Officer, presented a Hawaiian oli (song).

The new pharmacy is not open to the public, but rather caters to all the pharmaceutical needs of patients who stay overnight in the hospital.

“The new pharmacy gives us more space and improved technology, providing increased safety for patients and staff,” said Fazio. “In addition, the new pharmacy will ensure that we are prepared for new pharmaceutical and drug regulations in the future. “
