Marc and Lynne Benioff are donating $150 million to two Hawaiʻi hospitals to help ensure continuous health care access in the state, according to a news release Tuesday.

The gift is one of the largest single private donations in Hawaiʻi history, the release said.

Of the $150 million, Hilo Medical Center on Hawaiʻi Island will receive $50 million to build out critical areas of care. The center will be renamed the Hilo Benioff Medical Center. The Benioffs’ contribution matches a $50 million appropriation from the state.

Hawaiʻi Pacific Health will receive $100 million to help create a “healthcare campus of the future” at Straub Medical Center in Honolulu on Oʻahu. The upgraded center will be triple in size — and renamed the Straub Benioff Medical Center.

The news release said the donation will also connect both Hawaiʻi hospitals with UCSF Health in San Francisco to provide more specialized care in areas like oncology and neurology. Leadership staff and board members from the ALS Network were in attendance at an event for the public presentation of the gift.
