The blessing brought together staff from throughout the hospital with several hospital chaplains and others from the community, including Kimokeo Kapahulehua, who visited each floor of the hospital afterwards to offer an official blessing with ti leaves and salt from Kalaupapa, Molokaʻi.

“Nurses and our entire hospital staff give so much of themselves in caring for others that we look forward to this chance to honor them for their special gifts by blessing the hands that nurture so many.” said MMMC CEO Wesley Lo.
