Kahala Nui Gives Back To Key Supporters, Other Charities
In its mission to serve residents of its continuing-care retirement community, Kahala Nui recently honored six key supporters who went beyond the call of duty as 2014 Business Partners of the Year.
Recognized in ceremonies at the upscale senior complex were Drs. Eric K.S. Yee and Michiko Inaba, Hawaii Business magazine, HFM Foodservice, MedAssets and United Laundry Services.
CEO Pat Duarte called the alliances a win-win “for those who are truly committed to service excellence and a shared vision.”
Kahala Nui, which operates as a nonprofit, opened in 2005 on Malia Street in Waialae-Kahala. It has 270 private apartments, a long-term care unit and a wide variety of amenities and programs.
As a way of giving back, the facility also donated more than $110,000 to Aloha United Way in December via its Social Accountability program.
Funds went Catholic Charities for senior housing assistance, Project Dana to help frail elderly clients, Alzheimer’s Association of Hawaii, Kokua Kalihi Valley for elder services and public housing, and Hawaii Meals on Wheels for frail seniors.
