HONOLULU (AP) - The Queen’s Medical Center will be accepting patients at its west Oahu facility starting in May.

The Queen’s Health Systems says the Ewa Beach hospital will be open and accepting patients on May 20.

The Queen’s Medical Center is Hawaii’s largest private hospital.

In 2012, its parent company bought Hawaii Medical Center-West after it closed and announced plans to reopen the hospital it under the name The Queen’s Medical Center-West Oahu.

Community members have complained west Oahu has been underserved by medical facilities since the closure.

The new facility will include an emergency room, specialty clinics and 80 beds.

The Queen’s Medical Center was founded in 1859 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV. The opening date coincides with the birthday of their son, Prince Albert.
