Q: Is Kula Hospital still a community hospital and Emergency Room? I am not a Kaiser member.

Yes! Kula Hospital is a critical access hospital that provides emergency care to the Upcountry community. Kula Hospital's emergency room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is open to everyone, regardless of health insurance. The hospital has an on-site laboratory and limited diagnostic imaging capabilities, so you can be treated for broken bones, infections, and other urgent health concerns without having to drive to Wailuku for care. Most times, wait time for the Kula Hospital ER is minimal.
