Activation Teams for Trauma, Heart Attack, Stroke and Sepsis

In 2015, we added Sepsis Activation to our toolkit of activations to trigger immediate care for this very serious infection in the bloodstream. Since 2011, we instituted activation teams as a “best practice” approach in the way we care for trauma, heart attack, stroke, and now sepsis. This best practice originated out of the Hilo Medical Center’s Trauma Program.

“Buy Local" Healthcare

We want everyone to know that we are the Hilo Medical Center of today! We are no longer the Hilo Hospital of decades ago. We are Hilo’s medical center of over 1,100 physicians and staff who have worked very hard to improve the quality of care we deliver with a focus on our Hilo-style of aloha!

More and more of our patients and their families have been noticing our improvements and they wanted to know how they could help spread the word. There's no better way to promote our hospital and staff than to let the work speak for itself through patient testimonies.
