AT

A

TIME

Looking down the lens of a microscope every day, pathologist Dr. Barry Shitamoto knows a thing or two about details. Attention to detail served him well as the MMMC Foundation Board President – a volunteer position he held for many years. “I enjoyed being a part of the Foundation Board,” says Dr. Barry. “It was an honor to work with so many committed Board members toward the vision of improving our hospital.”

At age 4, Mishalei was rushed to the hospital for staph in her ankle. By then, her body temperature rose to 106 degrees, as the staph infected her bloodstream. There at the hospital, Mishalei received the most attentive care--nurses on-call and every hour; daily visits from her pediatrician and specialists; 'ono meals and desserts; warm and handmade blankets; stuffed animals too!

GIFT

THAT

keeps on giving

Richard and Lynne Buckley have been to Maui Memorial Medical Center more times than they care to admit. As an ovarian cancer survivor, Lynne has spent hundreds of hours receiving chemotherapy treatment in MMMC’s Oncology Department. “The care here is just superb,” says Lynne. “The Oncology Department saved my life and I wanted very much to give something back to those perhaps not as fortunate as I.”

At four years old, Nikko suddenly started experiencing scary symptoms that were later diagnosed as partial complex seizures or partial epilepsy. Upon every visit to the ER, the staff of MMMC showed great compassion and empathy for what we were going through. Nurses would constantly come and check up on how he was doing, doctors would be willing to answer any questions that needed to be answered.

BECAUSE

LIFE IS PRECIOUS

I can truly say that I am so grateful for our gem of a hospital. Earlier in the year I was taken to the Emergency Room because I had a very hard time breathing and catching my breath. I was greeted by a very calm and professional nurse who took me straight into the ER and gave me oxygen and a warm blanket. She was very comforting and helped me to stay calm. Everyone from the doctors, nurses, clerks-everyone was very professional and caring and I knew I was in good hands.
