Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV went door-to-door to personally raise money to build the hospital, which was named The Queen’s Hospital. Through this effort, the King and Queen were able to open a temporary structure in 1859, and a year later, opened a two-story 124-bed facility, which was built on the present site. Today, The Queen’s Health Systems is a nonprofit family of hospitals and health-related entities.
