Greetings with aloha to the people of the world and Aloha from the beautiful Wai'anae Coast on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. We are a Community Health Center that serves over 29,000 patients, with over 170,000 visits annually through our 6 service sites. Improving care to the community means continued integration of primary care, behavioral health, nutrition, dental care, diagnostic services and pharmacy within the same clinic.

This year individual staffs were given awards for excellence by the Hawaii Primary Care Association in: Dental Care, Behavioral Health, Quality Improvement and Fiscal Management. The second community trained classes of Medical Students and Dental Residents graduated this year. Additionally, the Health Center received recognition from the Pacific Buddhist Academy as an Inspirational Organization. These acknowledgements reflect a commitment of caring and serving in the community that supports the belief that healthcare is more than just giving out pills.

We are proud to consider ourselves pioneers in Community-Governed Healthcare, Electronic Medical Records, the Medical Home, Vocational and Professional Health Career Training and Native Hawaiian Traditional Healing. We welcome your interest in our Health Center. Please continue to check our website for new developments.
