“This year we were reminded how vital our health care professionals are to the health and well-being of our entire community and we welcome anyone with a passion for caring for others to join our ‘ohana at Kula Hospital. This is a first step to exploring the many different career opportunities in the health care industry and a way for our residents to make the move into something new, without having to spend time and resources going back to school,” said Pitcher.
