Bittick, a senior vice president with PM Realty Group’s Pacific Rim division, reports that the healthcare system’s new lease is indicative of what’s happening in the medical office space market in Hawaii.

“Hospitals on the outer islands seem to be at full capacity and are looking to place outpatient services in medical office buildings,” Bittick says. Hawaii Health Systems Corp., which is the nation’s fourth-largest public hospital system, will expand its outpatient services from Hilo Hospital at 1190 Waianuenue Ave. to the new freestanding facility at 45 Mohouli St.
