People typically think about beaches and tourism in Hawaii, but there are great healthcare options, too. For instance, three of the best hospitals in Hawaii include Queen's Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center, and Straub Clinic and Hospital, all of which are in Honolulu. There are also smaller hospitals and urgent care facilities across the entire state that provide healthcare to residents and tourists alike.

Healthcare in Hawaii

The high tourist population in Hawaii makes health insurance a bit of an issue because many insurance companies do not provide coverage to areas outside a certain range. However, the healthcare facilities in Hawaii never reject care to any person based on their insurance or lack thereof. Plus, the Affordable Care Act that was passed in 2010 will be in full effect in 2014. It will give residents and tourists even more healthcare options in Hawaii. Many of the injuries in Hawaii are related to sports accidents due to all the recreational options in the state.

Urgent Care in Hawaii

Most states provide urgent care facilities where people can get treated for illness and injuries that do not warrant a trip to the emergency room, and Hawaii is no exception. Hawaii has urgent care facilities in all the major cities and on most of the smaller islands. Urgent care facilities are equipped to handle minor lacerations, bone fractures, dislocations, and illness related to respiratory problems. They are one of the best options because they have shorter wait times than the emergency room and the care is less expensive.

Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services

    Very happy with this urgent care! They were ridiculously kind and friendly to my terrified son and explained everything. They were super patient, friendly, funny and did a fantastic job stitching him and sending him home with everything we needed. Thank you! Honestly, this was probably the best urgent care experience I’ve ever had...from the receptionist to the nurse to the PA they were all absolutely AMAZING! 10/10 stars! If you get injured on vacation then this is where you need to go!!

    My husband and I struggled for 2 days trying to get COVID testing from other providers. We finally managed to squeeze in a reservation with Katie and Mica (1280 S Kihei Rd) the day before we were supposed to leave for Kauai. They offered friendly, enthusiastic service that made us feel like they truly cared. We even ended up getting our results before our flight the following day. Thanks Katie and Mica, you two are awesome!
