Expected to be released in a few days and to make full recovery
State Representative Clift Tsuji (District 3 – South Hilo, Panaewa, Puna, Keaau, Kurtistown) announced today that he was admitted to Hilo Medical Center last week with pneumonia, but he is expected to be released in a few days and to make a full recovery. He has been able to keep up with emails, correspondence and other work during his hospital stay.
Rep. Tsuji has served his East Hawaii district as a state representative since the 2005 legislative session. Due to reapportionment, he is currently running in a new District 2 (Hilo, Waiakea, Keaukaha) unopposed.
“I am grateful for everyone’s kindness and well wishes during my illness,” said Rep. Tsuji. “I am receiving excellent care at Hilo Medical Center and look forward to being back 100% very soon.”
