Responding to a request regarding a list of every hospital, clinic, or other institution that provides sexual assault forensic exams administered by a certificated SANE in Hawaii County. We tried to respond via the online address given, but the passcode provided did not work.

With regard to the question, SANE exams are provided through the YWCA and are done at the Hilo Hospital and Kona Community Hospital. The request comes through police who contact the YWCA to set up the exam. The hospitals allow the SANE's to utilize a room for the exam. These SANES are not employed by the hospital for the purposes of these exams. SANES are on call and typically do these exams in addition to other jobs they may have.
