Founded in 1921, Straub Medical Center is a fully integrated nonprofit health care system with a 159-bed tertiary care hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawai‘i. With more than 300 employed or contracted physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with expert diagnoses and treatments for more than 30 different medical specialties, including bone and joint, heart, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, women’s health, vascular and urology. Straub is home to the Pacific Region’s only multi-disciplinary burn treatment center. The hospital consistently brings new technologies and innovative medical practices to Hawai‘i, such as pioneering minimally invasive cardiac surgery and total joint replacement. In 2010, the American Heart Association recognized Straub in three areas of excellence: Coronary Artery Disease (Gold Award), Heart Failure (Silver Award) and Heart Attack (Bronze Award.)
The Ornish Reversal Program is nationally recognized—through the results of more than 35 years of peer-reviewed, published research—for reversing the progression of heart disease. The program has been proven to undo heart disease by dealing with the root causes and not just its effects. Participants that qualify for the program will attend 18, four-hour sessions over 9 weeks that include education on the four key elements of the Ornish Reversal Program - fitness, nutrition, stress management, and love and support. The combined effect of all four lifestyle elements makes the transformative difference. Over the years, participants have reported that they no longer have chest pain, they have more energy, their cholesterol levels and blood pressure have lowered, and they have kept off weight lost while taking part in the program. Participants have also reported that they have been able to reduce the amount of medication they took for years.
