2003 News Stories

Imagine an entrance that will at once be grand and yet commune with nature. Visualize a space that captures the historic essence of The Queen's Medical Center, of Queen Emma and the royal family, yet smoothly segues to the future. Envision a sense of place that is Queen's. This grand vision becomes a reality in September 2004, when Queen's new lobby opens to the public.

Visitors will enter via the porte cochere and follow a path leading to double automatic doors. A person entering will have a diagonal view of the entire lobby. One immediately notices a soaring ceiling, bordered on one side by clerestory windows which provide natural light (see architectural rendering 1). Wood floors add to the warmth of the room, as does a lanai and garden of greenery beyond, which can be seen through glass walls to the right.

In the garden, visitors will find a peaceful place dedicated to the royal family, where statues will eventually memorialize Queen's founders, King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, and their son, Prince Albert. Visitors may also visit a new gourmet coffee bar. Women guests may have come to experience the comprehensive services of the new Queen's Women's Health Center--also opening in September 2004--which can be entered through doors just left of the centrally located information desk. At the far end, visitors will also find a new gift shop, a convenient stop just before moving on to the elevators.

The old, the new and the timeless will be represented in the new Queen's lobby. This grand, new entrance will set the tone for the healing environment that is The Queen's Medical Center.
