A 575-bed facility, the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu has been serving the residents of Hawaii for over 162 years. As the state’s only organ transplantation program, Queen’s Medical Center also offers the first and only Level I trauma center in Hawaii. Queen’s is a major teaching hospital for the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine and is also the major referral center for cancer, heart disease, behavioral health, and neuroscience. Founded in 1859 by King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, The Queen’s Hospital was established in order to turn the tide of diseases that had been introduced to the island. The Queen’s Medical Center was recognized as the Best Hospital in Honolulu by U.S. News and World Report 2017-18.

As both the capital and the largest city in Hawaii, Honolulu is located along the southeast coast on the island of Oahu. A major hub for international business and travel, as well as a military post, the city is a diverse mix of cultures and peoples with a population of over 300,000 residents. A popular tourist destination, Honolulu’s tropical climate affords little temperature variation, the average temperature being between 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit most of the year. The average rainfall is 17.10 inches, creating a very lush, humid, and green landscape. As the second safest city in the US, Honolulu consistently ranks among the best places to live in terms of health care, education, and culture. Hawaii can also be very costly, with living expenses up to 69% higher than the US average, as reported in 2014. With its many ocean-based activities, hiking trails, performing and visual arts venues, and cultural centers, Honolulu is a very active, and exciting place to live. Considered one of the fittest cities in the US, Honolulu also hosts a number of internationally attended road races, being home of the first ever Ironman triathlon. Be sure to consider finances before committing to The Queen’s Medical Center, as it may be worth the price to take a contract in paradise.
