Mayor Harry Kim Undergoes Out-Patient Procedure
Hawaiʻi County Mayor Harry Kim underwent an out-patient procedure involving the insertion of a defibrillator as a precautionary measure at Hilo Medical Center this morning, Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
“Knowing Harry, he’ll be back at work soon,” Managing Director Wil Okabe said. “We appreciate everybody’s good wishes and support.”
The 78-year-old Mayor has had three previous heart attacks, and underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2008.
