The Hawaii State Department of Health has a newly renovated lobby and marriage license office.

The department says the renovation was the vision of the department’s former director Loretta Fuddy, who died after the plane she was a passenger in crashed-landed in the ocean off Molokai in December.

Fuddy was involved in designing the project and worked with the architects on it several months before she died.

The department opened the new lobby Tuesday, which included unveiling an improved marriage licensing office. The marriage office features computer stations for couples to complete their license applications online.

The department is dedicating the Kinau Hale lobby to Fuddy.

The project cost $460,000 and was funded by the state Legislature through capital improvement bond funds.
