Hospice Thirty Years

For 30 years, Hospice of Hilo has compassionately cared for the end-of-life needs of the East and South portions of the Big Island from Laupāhoehoe to South Point, Ka‘ū.  Hospice of Hilo has grown from four volunteer staff members working out a small cottage on Waiānuenue Avenue to an organization with 84 staff members and over 200 volunteers, an office complex and the new inpatient care center, the 12 suite 14,140 sq ft Pōhai Mālama a Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Care Center, the first one of its kind on a neighbor island.   “Through all the changes over the years we’ve been able to, with the support of the community, stay anchored to our core of helping individuals and families live better through our home care program, inpatient care center, bereavement counseling and pre-hospice Transitions Program,” said Umamoto.

“Hospice of Hilo exists to serve the East Hawai‘i community, and we are so honored to have the continued support and trust of those we serve.  We would not be here today without your help and we cannot thank you enough,” said Hospice of Hilo CEO, Brenda S. Ho.
