Community First Always, has been the guiding principle of everything we do at Mālama I Ke Ola Health Center. Community First Always guided us on Wednesday, August 9th, 2023, without hesitation, to set up the first coordinated medical stations at the War Memorial and Maui High School shelters, in partnership with the Maui District Health Office.
As a federally qualified health center (FQHC) operating under the federal Bureau of Primary Healthcare, Mālama I Ke Ola Health Center serves all of Maui County except Hana, Lāna'i, and Molokaʻi (served by our sister FQHCs). We have provided an integrated model of primary medical, dental, and behavioral health access to our island community for thirty years. The West Maui fires burned our Lāhainā clinic to the ground, along with two other major outpatient groups (Maui Medical Group and Kaiser Permanente) in Lāhainā. As the only non-Kaiser provider for obstetrics and gynecological services and the only adult dental Medicaid provider on the island, we are especially focused on returning our range of services to the West Side.
As West Maui begins the long road to recovery, Mālama I Ke Ola Health Center will focus on restoring critical healthcare access to the community on West Maui. We plan to do so by providing outpatient services from the Lāhainā Comprehensive Health Center in partnership with the Department of Health and other community partners.
