Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) has a long history of serving the Maui community. Originally opened in 1884 as "Malulani" (Protection of Heaven) by Queen Kapiolani, the County of Maui assumed financial responsibility for Malulani Hospital in 1927. In 1952, a new 140-bed Central Maui Memorial Hospital was built and dedicated to Maui's fallen veterans. In 1956, with the closing of Paia, Puunene, and Lahaina plantation hospitals, all acute hospital care were consolidated under Central Maui Memorial Hospital at the hospital's current location on Mahalani Street in Wailuku. In 1963, the hospital changed its name to Maui Memorial Hospital and, in 1966, operations were transferred from the County of Maui's purview to the State of Hawaii. In 1998, the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation was created by the Legislature to oversee the administration of MMH and the other 11 rural hospitals, then under the control of the Department of Health, Division of Community Hospitals. In 1998, Maui Memorial Hospital was renamed Maui Memorial Medical Center to reflect the broader range of services it offered.
Today, MMMC employs over 1,400 employees and boasts over 200 attending physicians. MMMC, the largest acute care facility within the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) is also supported through community donations through our non-profit partners: MMMC Foundation and Hospital Auxiliary.
Maui Memorial Medical Center is the hub of a vibrant community, with exceptional physicians, state-of-the-art diagnostics, and medical services such as for childbirth, routine surgery, orthopedics and rehabilitation after major illnesses. The Hospital also staffs several departments specializing in the treatment of heart disease and cancer. MMMC has long recognized the importance to its community and our visitors.
