Maui Health’s goal is to provide the community of Maui and Lanai with state-of-the-art health care right here at home. Maui Memorial Medical Center exemplifies what makes Maui so special and unique. We are a true community hospital in that our patients are our friends, family, and neighbors and so we care for our patients as we care for our own family members. Our team does whatever we can to not only provide the absolute best care possible, but to make our patients feel comfortable and at ease.
Studies have shown that a critical factor in a person’s healing process is a healing environment and support system. So our goal is to grow and enhance the services we offer so that we can keep as many patients here on island as possible to provide them the best chances of recovery and living a healthy and happy life.
Our ability to treat stroke patients with excellent outcomes and save lives is critical to this goal. With our world-renowned neuroradiology team, state-of-the-art equipment, progressive technology, and 24/7 access to neuroradiologists to read scans, patients no longer need to be transported to Oahu for emergency stroke care.
