West Hawaii Community Health Center is a leader in delivering outstanding patient-centered health care on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our mission is to make quality, comprehensive, and integrated health services accessible to all, regardless of income. We are dedicated to offering services that are culturally sensitive and promote community well-being through the practice of malama pono (caring for others in a way that is right).
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, the center receives 10% of its operating funds from the Federal Bureau of Primary Health Care. This funding assists in bringing comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations. This includes every child, woman, and man who face barriers in accessing health care services due to low income, language, cultural differences, or an insufficient number of health care providers in the area. West Hawaii Community Health Center is held to rigorous performance and accountability standards including administrative, clinical, and financial operations. Our quality and effectiveness is measured and is continuously evolving to achieve the greatest positive health impact on West Hawaii’s population.
