Q: Does Maui Memorial Medical Center have a cardiologist on call 24/7?

Aloha, and thanks for this important question! A cardiologist is always available on-call at Maui Memorial Medical Center, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

In fact, we started an interventional cardiology program at MMMC in 2010 to provide the best possible care for people on Maui who have cardiac emergencies such as heart attacks or cardiac arrests.

Our specially trained interventional cardiologists and support team can open up blocked coronary arteries with non-surgical procedures known as percutaneous coronary interventions, or PCIs. Sometimes these procedures involve placing tiny cylindrical stents inside arteries to keep them open. This is one of the best ways to treat a heart attack. MMMC has a state-of-the-art facility where these lifesaving procedures can be done without having to go to Oahu. We also have surgeons who do open-heart surgical procedures.

Additionally, Maui Memorial Medical Center has consistently earned recognition from the American Heart Association for heart failure care.

Bottom line is—we're here for you if you ever need us!
