Kahuku Hospital

This remote rural hospital serves the North Shore area.


Curiously, the hospital in the Lost storyline is named St. Francis Hospital, whereas the real St. Francis Hospital of Honolulu has also been a filming locaiton.

The subsequent chase scene and escape were not filmed in Kahuku Hospital's parking building, but in the Pearlridge Shopping Center's parking structure.

Like many rural hopsitals, Kahuku Hospital has long suffered from frequent funding shortages due to the small size of the surrounding population.
