Tripler Army Medical Center


Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) is one of the most modern medical facilities in the world. It’s home to the Pacific Regional Medical Command and serves at least 400,000 people in the Pacific Basin. Though its history dates back to 1907 when it was housed within Fort Shafter, the present day complex was dedicated in 1948. It can be spotted from any point in the Honolulu district due to its perch on the Moanalua Ridge and its distinctive coral pink color. One of several rumors about the color choice is that the paint and design elements were modeled after the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki. Another theory is that a soldier ordered 30 million gallons of the wrong color! Whatever the reason, we love the “Pink Lady” – she’s MILLIE approved!

If you’ve received orders for TAMC – congratulations! Pack away your winter clothes and stock up on beachwear because paradise awaits. The island can be intimidating, but the good news is that it’s HAWAII and incredible places to live are plentiful. On post housing is in high demand and it’s not uncommon to be on a waiting list for anywhere from a few weeks to several months. There is typically a healthy supply of short term and vacation rentals available for this very reason. There is also consistent property appreciation on the island so it’s not a terrible idea to go ahead and invest in a home. If you’ll be here a few years, plan to rent it out when you PCS again, or think you may return in retirement, it’s a good idea to look into purchasing a home.
