His experience will really add to Hale Makua Health Services’ goals to continually improve our quality of healthcare and enhance the lives of our residents, as well as to build strong partnerships with our hospitals and physician groups.”
As Hale Makua Wailuku Administrator, Mattfeld will provide oversight of the activities, nursing, social services, housekeeping and laundry departments. In addition, he is responsible for the organization’s Wailuku operations, which include a federally and state-licensed 90-bed nursing home and 20-bed adult residential care home, and campus operations, activities, policies and procedures.
Mattfeld said, “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to serve the Hale Makua community at the Wailuku campus. The vision and mission of this organization – Improving the well-being of those in our care through compassionate personalized health services in our home and yours – is what drew me to this beautiful island and I am honored to be starting a new chapter in my career on Maui with the Hale Makua team.”
Hale Makua Health Services is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, established in 1946 to provide a home for elders who had no one to care for them or means to pay for care. It is one of Maui’s largest non-government employers with over 450 employees providing care for over 1,500 individuals on Maui annually.
The organization’s continuum of healthcare programs include two nursing homes and rehab centers specializing in both in and out-patient physical, occupational and speech therapies; a home health care agency; an adult day health center; and an adult residential care home.
