Mental health administrator returning

After two years as administrator of the Hawai’i State Hospital on Oahu, Wayne

Law is returning to Kaua’i.

Law will resume his duties as chief of the

Kaua’i Mental Health Center. Until his replacement at the state hospital is

found, though, Law will remain in Honolulu.

Bruce Anderson, state director

of health, said Law was appointed administrator of the state hospital at a time

when the state’s mental health program was being required to increase

community-based programming for discharged patients.

Under Law’s

administration, the hospital achieved national reaccreditation, implemented

treatment-related activities and significantly increased discharges, according

to Anderson.

“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.


said Law wants to return to Kaua’i.
