$1.5 million in general obligation bond funds will go to Hilo Medical Center to finance the construction and equipment for the replacement of two chillers at the facility. The project should be completed by December 2023.
$2.5 million in general obligation bond funds will go to Kona Community Hospital to finance the planning, design, construction, and equipment for the replacement of the Oncology Fusion Center. The project should be completed by May 2025.
