The Kula Sanatorium, also known as Kula Hospital & Clinic, is a five-story structure situated on the lower slopes of Haleakala within the small community of Keokea. The Moderne style hospital was built in 1937 as a sanatorium intended for the treatment of tuberculosis patients. The Kula Sanatorium is historically significant for its place in the history of healthcare in Hawaii, particularly the treatment of tuberculosis. The building is architecturally significant as it retains the original design elements, form and scale of the Moderne period and is associated with the work of master architect Charles W. Dickey.
