North Hawaii Community Hospital (NHCH) is a rural 35-bed acute care hospital located in Kamuela (Waimea), on the Hawaii Island. NHCH is a non-profit community hospital that serves more than 30,000 residents and visitors in North Hawaii.
North Hawaii Community Hospital opened in May 1996 after decades of dreaming and nearly ten years of planning. Offering a full spectrum of acute care, outpatient services and 24/7 emergency services, NHCH delivers high-quality care on a consistent basis. NHCH combines high tech capability with a commitment to honoring blended-care practices and procedures centered on putting patients first, creating a healing experience for the whole person – mind, body and spirit. In January 2014, North Hawaii Community Hospital became part of The Queen’s Health Systems, a not-for-profit corporation established in 1985 to bring expanded healthcare capabilities to the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Basin. The Queen’s Health Systems mission is to fulfill the intent of Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV to provide in perpetuity quality healthcare services to improve the wellbeing of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawaii.
North Hawaii Community Hospital is a grateful recipient of support from the Parker Ranch Foundation.
