Hawaii Pacific Health is a not-for-profit health care network of hospitals, clinics, physicians and care providers dedicated to the mission of improving the health and well-being of the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Region.

As the state’s largest health care provider, Hawaii Pacific Health’s network of doctors and specialists provide a distinctive model of coordinated care to treat everything from the common cold to the most complex medical conditions. Its not-for-profit mission means all earnings are reinvested into improving medical equipment and facilities. It also means we invest in research, education and training as well as charity care for underserved people within our island community.
