New Breath of Life
Refreshing Hospice Hawaii’s Workplace


In celebration of Hospice Hawaii’s 40th anniversary, their main headquarters in Iwilei received a new facelift. The organization had the opportunity to reexamine its space—from the reception area to the conference room and everything in between—and successfully implement a brand new design scheme, look and feel.

The newly renovated space features modern furniture and fixtures, new technology, and the Hospice Hawaii “blue scheme” to create a bright, welcoming feel with an open floor plan and more room for collaboration. Hospice Hawaii also added innovative touchdown stations for field staff and a multipurpose room designed for education and community gatherings. In December 2018, Hospice Hawaii was honored to announce the special naming of our new multipurpose room in honor of Clarence T.C. Ching. 

“We are especially grateful to The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation for their generous grant award and for the private contributions from many others who helped to make this strategic vision to transform our main facility a reality,” said Tori Abe Carapelho, President & CEO. This meaningful investment positively impacts Hospice Hawaii’s patients and their families today and well into the future.
