Our legacy

In 1884, Mother Marianne Cope and the Sisters of St. Francis came to Maui and with a royal bequest from Queen Kapiolani, established Malulani Hospital in Wailuku, next to the site of St. Anthony's Church. Malulani was the first hospital established on Maui and for over 70 years it served as the community hospital for Wailuku. Malulani means "under the shelter or protection of heaven," a fitting name and a tribute to the origins of the hospital via the work of the Sisters and the enabling grant from the alii. In 1952, Central Maui Memorial Hospital was established and subsequently Malulani and the other plantation hospitals in Lahaina, Puunene and Paia were closed.

Malulani Health and Medical Center will be created in honor of this legacy, and will reflect the original mission of the community hospital, namely serving the people of Maui with the best possible healthcare available and with a true spirit of caring for the community.

our logo

The Malulani Logo is an outline of the island of Maui with blue sky over it, befitting the meaning of Malulani-- "Under the Shelter or Protection of Heaven." The complete logo is a circle, signifying wholeness and health, and the wavy form of the blue sky on the white background echoes the Yang and Yin symbol, a reference to the model of integrated care at Malulani that will feature a blend of the best western, asian, complementary and alternative medicine traditions.
