ABOUT THE GOVERNOR

Josh Green, M.D.

Governor Josh Green is a proud husband, father, and physician. For the past 20 years, Governor Green cared for Big Island families as a doctor. He served in the State House of Representatives and the State Senate from 2004 to 2018. As chair of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, he passed “Luke’s Law,” which provides care for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as tobacco and e-cigarette regulations, which increased the legal age for purchasing tobacco and e-cigarettes to 21. Passionate about housing solutions, Governor Green helped create “Kauhale” communities to get unsheltered veterans, kūpuna, and others into safe housing options. These efforts are ongoing and will continue to be one of his top priorities as Governor.  Governor Green expanded the role of Lieutenant Governor by spearheading the largest healthcare response in state history during the COVID pandemic. These critical emergency efforts resulted in Hawaiʻi having the nation’s lowest COVID-19 fatality rate.

Today we gather to bless The Straub Benioff Medical Center which is a vital resource for the state of Hawai‘i. What’s unique about Straub is that it also has the only burn unit in the state of Hawai‘i and the Pacific Region. For over 40 years, Straub’s burn unit has provided specialized treatment to more than 2,000 patients requiring life-saving and limb-preserving procedures, as well as intricate wound assessments. Straub Medical Center was instrumental in providing life-saving care for those impacted by the Lahaina wildfires. I’d like to thank all of the doctors and healthcare providers who were there to take care of our Lahaina survivors. Mahalo Marc and Lynne Benioff for your generosity and support across the state. I’m truly grateful for your donation and investment in the health of Hawai‘i’s people. Their gift is one of the largest in Hawai‘i’s history.  This donation of $100 million will have a significant impact on our state by providing critical care to thousands of people in Hawai’i. With this funding, our people will be able to continue to receive top-of-the-line medical services as part of the care they need. I am excited to witness the progress the Straub Benioff Medical Center will make in advancing healthcare in Hawaiʻi. ...
