Caring for Our Kupuna: A Tale of Hawaii’s Senior Care Transformation

As Hawaii’s population matures, family members are often thrust into caring for their aging loved ones. Most families are simply not prepared to provide the necessary level of care at home. In support of both patients and their caregivers, St. Francis Healthcare System is transforming their 90-year old campus to a state of the art destination for Hawaii’s aging population, and a valuable resource for the extended care team of family members.

This lively presentation illustrates the rejuvenation of St. Francis. A truly unique assemblage of comprehensive senior services is available, due to the facility’s backbone as an acute-care hospital. At the St. Francis’ Liliha campus on Oahu, a Kupuna Village is taking hold, replete with the Aloha spirit. New business partnerships are developed, creating diverse opportunities for care services. A new chapter of senior care is emerging at St Francis, with the margin, to fulfill their mission, of creating healthy communities.


1. Learn how creating collaborative business partnerships can help a system’s bottom line in providing care, and create a pathway for positive change.
2. Discover how a combination of care modalities, combined with bringing family into the care team can produce vastly enhanced outcomes for seniors.
3. Understand how adapting to changing demographics can bring about opportunities for reinvigorating an institution, and their brand.
4. Learn how the Aloha spirit is infused into the evolution of senior wellness services, from sick care to healthy lifestyle environments.
