Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim returned to work early Monday morning (30 April 2018), following treatment at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu for what may have been two separate heart attacks.

Kim told reporter Nancy Cook Lauer that a failure of a heart valve may have contributed to the chest pains which caused him to seek help at the Hilo Medical Center and later at the Queen’s Medical Center:

“One of the valves collapsed, Kim said, and the specialists were unsuccessful in their attempts to use stints to prop it open. He’s now on medication.”

“Kim checked out of the hospital Friday and spent the weekend in Honolulu with his wife, Bobbi.”

“I know my body. I know what works,” Kim said. “I know what I have to do.”
