Groundbreaking held for Straub medical campus named after Salesforce CEO, wife

A groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday marked the start of construction on the first phase of a new, multi-year project at Straub Medical Center.

The Straub Benioff Medical Center Redevelopment project is a 700,000-square-foot medical campus — nearly triple the size of the current facility.

It’s renamed after Marc Benioff, chair and CEO of Salesforce, and his wife, Lynne, who recently donated $100 million to the project. It’s the largest donation to Hawaii Pacific Health and one of the largest single private donations in Hawaii history, HPH said.

“We are honored to support this project to build an incredible health care campus of the future,” the Benioffs said, in a statement. “Together, we are working in the spirit of Aloha to ensure everyone gets the highest quality care, where and when they need it.”
