Cancer care

A cancer diagnosis can be a frightening thing. Fortunately, you don't have to travel far from home to get exceptional cancer care that follows the same approach and best-practice protocols as major cancer centers on the mainland—including innovative clinical trials.

Maui Health's team offers exceptional cancer diagnostics and care with excellent outcomes, right here where you and your family live. We offer a wide range of services, including genetic testing and counseling, surgery, and chemotherapy.

Fast and convenient appointments

When you find out you have cancer, you don't want to wait weeks or months to see a specialist. Our surgical oncologist is available to see newly diagnosed patients within a week of a referral—and often as soon as the next day. Please coordinate with your primary care physician for a referral.

Patients can also arrange telehealth visits for remote consultations.

Cancer surgery

Our surgical oncology team specializes in the management of complex cancers, including:

Cancer surgeries are offered primarily at Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC). However, surgical oncology consultations, telehealth communications and remote consultations can occur at any of Maui Health's sites, including at Lanai Community Hospital and Kula Clinic.

We follow the "Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)" program, which allows our patients to minimize the use of narcotic pain medicine after surgery and recover from operations more quickly with fewer complications.

Chemotherapy infusion services

Our chemotherapy infusion center is located at MMMC. This service is available by referral from a provider. The center is designed to make treatment as comfortable as possible, with 10 recliner chairs and two private rooms.

We offer treatments for cancer and hematology conditions (blood disorders). Specific services and procedures we provide include:

All the nurses at the infusion center are certified in chemotherapy and biotherapy. We also have several oncology certified nurses as well as a certified hospice and palliative care nurse.
