Kaua’i Mental Health Center. Until his replacement at the state hospital is
found, though, Law will remain in Honolulu.

when the state’s mental health program was being required to increase
community-based programming for discharged patients.
administration, the hospital achieved national reaccreditation, implemented
treatment-related activities and significantly increased discharges, according
“Wayne brought the hospital a long way in a relatively short
period of time. His administrative experience, programming knowledge and people
skills were great assets in our efforts at the hospital,” Anderson said.
