DOH: MMMC Cases Remain Under Investigation

DOH (State Department of Health) is emphasizing that the cluster of cases at Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) is not a hospital-wide issue at this time, but involves at least two wards with the Chronic Care Ward as the major focus.

Ninety (90) staff and 36 patients have been screened and had a swab specimen collected for testing. At this time 29 people have tested positive for COVID-19, although some appear to be separate introductions and not necessarily MMMC/healthcare-associated infections.

While the investigation at MMMC is continuing, DOH will be supporting MMMC in notifying patients who have recently been discharged or treated and may be associated with the affected wards and staff.
