Adventist Health Castle is a 160-bed medical center located in Windward Oahu. It provides many services, including: acute care, 24-hour emergency services, outpatient and home care, wellness and lifestyle medicine, chemotherapy clinic, Surgical Weight Loss Institute, Hawaii Muscular Dystrophy Clinic, Joint Care Center, birth center and interventional cardiology.[1]


In 1953, the Windward Community Association began a campaign for a hospital to be established in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii. Dr. Robert Chung, a physician and Mrs. Carolyn Rankin, organizer of a women's auxiliary, were key leaders in the campaign. Ten acres of land were donated for a building site, the community raised $170,000 to fund the project and the Seventh-day Adventist Church donated $600,000. Although support was received from both the Governor's Hospital Advisory Council and the 30th Territorial Legislature, the Board of Health refused to designate the area as a separate hospital zone. Their refusal prevented any federal funds from being available.[2]

Two incidents emphasized the need for a local hospital. The first involved a collapsed roof that injured five men and forced them to travel to Honolulu to receive medical attention. The second involved a five-year-old girl who choked to death on a pill. Doctors agreed that had surgery facilities been closer, the child might have lived. Within months the State Board of Health gave their approval and access to federal funds became available.[2]

On January 16, 1963, Castle Memorial Hospital opened. It was named in honor of Harold Kainalu Long Castle, who donated the land. The $2 million facility opened with 72 beds and 14 bassinets. In 1983, it became known as Castle Medical Center (CMC) due to the growth and success of the outpatient services and programs. CMC joined Adventist Health on January 28, 1973.[2]

In 1986, a decision was made to expand and a $8.7 million renovation was completed in 1989. This renovation expanded operating suites, equipment was updated and the kitchen, lobby, chapel and gift shop was enlarged. The state's first Labor-Delivery-Recovery-Post Partum rooms were also added.[2]

In December 2016 Castle Medical Center bought the Hawaii Loa campus in Windward Oahu from Hawaii Pacific University for $18.65 million. Property records reveal the property value at $8.4 million.[3][4][5] In 2017, Castle Medical Center changed its name to Adventist Health Castle.[6]

AdventistHealth Castle is going to build a new medical campus for $438 million.[7][8] Adventist Health Castle is going to redevelop the 132 acre Hawaii Loa campus over a 15 year period. They are going to be building the regions first cancer center in three phases. Also to be built will be new buildings for outpatient services. And construction will be finished with a new 160 bed hospital. Adventist Health is the largest business in Windward Oahu.[9]
