Additional physicians, nine added exam rooms, waiting room upgrades and new services will be unveiled at North Hawai’i Community Hospital’s Primary Care Expansion open house on Friday,
Feb. 22, 2019, between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The open house will feature tours, demonstrations, health screenings and giveaways, as well as
the opportunity to meet all of the Primary Care Clinic’s physicians and staff.

NHCH’s Primary Care Clinic, located next to Longs Drugs in Waimea, serves patients of all ages from the North Hawai’i region, offering comprehensive primary care services including same-day
urgent care appointments for established patients, as well as access to top specialists through The
Queen’s Health Systems.

In addition to expanded wound care and behavioral health services, the expanded primary care clinic will also offer telehealth, pulmonology and neurology care.

“Having a primary care doctor—one person who oversees your overall health—has been shown to keep you healthier as you age,” said Cindy Kamikawa, president of North Hawai’i Community Hospital. “It can not only help you live longer, but also improve the quality of your life. Our expanded primary care services right here in town makes it even easier for people to get the care they need close to home.”
