The parent company of Queen's Medical Center has finalized a deal with St. Francis Healthcare System of Hawaii to acquire and reopen by fall 2013 the shuttered Hawaii Medical Center-West campus in West Oahu.

Queen's has agreed to purchase and renovate the Ewa hospital for $73.2 million, according to regulatory filings with the State Health Planning and Development Agency, which regulates health-care projects and acquisitions.

Queen's will pay $21.2 million for the land and building and earmarked $25 million for hospital renovations that will include an expansion and modernization of emergency, surgical and imaging services. It will invest another $27 million for equipment.

Queen's indicated it would pay $25.2 million in cash and finance the remaining $48 million. Queen's plans to hire approximately 400 employees to resume emergency room and hospital operations.

The closing date of the sale is slated for October.

You haven't been following along. The "west" is a 3rd world country. See post above yours. Otherwise, they can have swahili speaking dragons running the hospital, build it, and they will come.
