THIRTIETH LEGISLATURE, 2019

H.D. 2

STATE OF HAWAII

 

 

 

 

 

 

A BILL FOR AN ACT

 

 

RELATING TO THE HAWAII HEALTH SYSTEMS CORPORATION.

 

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 


SECTION 1.  The legislature recognizes the need to expand cardiac care to the neighbor islands.  There have been many instances where heart attack victims are unable to receive crucial life-saving care within the "golden hour" from the onset of a heart attack during which death will occur if proper treatment is not received.  Irreversible damage to the heart can occur within just six hours after the blood supply to the heart is impeded.

Accordingly, the purpose of this Act is to appropriate funds for the establishment of a full-time catheterization laboratory, including employment of staff, at the Hilo medical center in the Hawaii health systems corporation east Hawaii region.

     SECTION 2.  There is appropriated out of the general revenues of the State of Hawaii the sum of $         or so much thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2019-2020 and the same sum or so much thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2020-2021 for the establishment of a full-time catheterization laboratory, including employment of staff, at the Hilo medical center in the Hawaii health systems corporation east Hawaii region.

     The sums appropriated shall be expended by the Hawaii health systems corporation for the purposes of this Act.

     SECTION 3.  This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2050.
