In June 2020 during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Shioi Construction offered several of its carpenters to Wilcox Medical Center and Kaua`i Medical Clinic to help them with repair and maintenance projects throughout the campus. The donated time equaled to 388 man hours, a $37,000+ value. “We were pleased to provide these services to the hospital and clinic in appreciation for the care and critical lifeline they provide to the Kaua`i community,” said Shioi Construction President Roy Shioi. “We are especially grateful for the many healthcare workers at Hawai`i Pacific Health as well as all organizations that make the health and safety of our community a top priority, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. Mahalo from all of us at Shioi Construction and Creative Partition Systems!” For more information about Shioi Construction, visit shioihawaii.com.
