The State Health Planning & Development Agency (SHPDA) granted Rainbow Dialysis (Rainbow) a conditional certificate of need to establish two dialysis facilities in Maui. Liberty Dialysis-Hawaii (Liberty), another Maui dialysis provider, sought reconsideration of SHPDA's decision. A five-member reconsideration committee unanimously approved Rainbow's certificate of need. Liberty appealed, arguing that the SHPDA administrator and another committee member should have been disqualified from participating in the reconsideration decision. The circuit court affirmed, holding that the SHPDA administrator should have been disqualified but his participation was harmless. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that neither the administrator nor the other committee member was disqualified from participating in the reconsideration decision.
