A History of Caring
Queen Kapiolani founded the Kapiolani Maternity Home in 1890. She held bazaars and luau to raise the $8,000 needed. In 1909, Albert and Emma Wilcox donated the funds to open Kauikeolani Childrens Hospital, a hospital for Hawaiis children envisioned by Dr. James R. Judd and Sanford Dole. In 1978, the two hospitals merged to become Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.
