AlohaCare Grant Provides Expanded Healthcare in Hamakua and North Kohala

August 30, Honoka’a, HI – Through another in a series of generous financial grants, AlohaCare works tirelessly with Hamakua-Kohala Health to provide quality, affordable health care to North East Hawai’i. Founded by Community Health Centers, non-profit AlohaCare is committed to improving the health of Hawaii’s communities in many ways; including helping health centers find doctors.

“It is more difficult to get doctors to practice in rural areas. With these much-needed funds, Hamakua-Kohala Health will be able to hire more doctors, nurses and dentists to serve our patients’ needs,” says Irene Carpenter, CEO of Hamakua-Kohala Health. “We are extremely grateful for the help of AlohaCare insurance so we can provide greatly needed medical help in our community.”

Simply put, it is because of grants like these that many Community Health Centers are able to keep their doors open. Most would not be able to provide needed services without partnerships like the one between Hamakua-Kohala Health and AlohaCare.

As a community-based health center, Hamakua-Kohala Health strives for individual and community wellness and provides comprehensive primary and preventative healthcare to persons of all ages, regardless of their ability to pay or health insurance status. AlohaCare’s passion is “to serve the people of Hawaii in the true spirit of aloha,” Hamakua-Kohala Health team members couldn’t agree more. Please join us in thanking AlohaCare, “For a healthy Hawaii.”
