Ownership and Governance

Wahiawa General Hospital (WGH) is a community owned, private, nonprofit corporation under section 501-(c)-3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Wahiawa General Hospital is located in the city Wahiawa, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. The Hospital was established in 1944 by the Department of Defense. A few years later a group of leaders in the Wahiawa Community agreed to assume operation of the Hospital in order to continue to provide healthcare services to the people of Central Oahu and the North Shore.

A 12-member, voluntary Board of Directors governs WGH. The Directors represent a broad spectrum of professional, business, and community leaders. The Board is dedicated to providing quality healthcare services for all people within the Hospital's service area.

The members of the Board of Directors work together for the benefit of the Community. They are charged with setting the strategic direction of the Hospital and establishing policies to meet the Mission and Vision of the organization.

Board Members are elected to serve on the Board for a term of three years and can serve a total of two terms. Each Director is also appointed to serve on a minimum of one standing committee of the Board. The Board of Directors holds its monthly meeting on the second Tuesday of the month. The following are the members of the current Board of Directors for 2003:
