  • Starting February 29, 2016, Kaiser Permanente will begin to extend hours and expand access at their Moanalua Medical Center’s After-Hours Care (AHC) clinic on Saturdays (8 a.m. – 10 p.m.), which will match their AHC hours on Sundays.
  • If you need urgent care, you are encouraged to call ahead for a same-day appointment with one of their providers in the After-Hours Care clinic. In some cases, you may be able to do the appointment by phone.
  • In addition, after-hours care will continue to be available at Maui Lani Medical Office (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) on Saturdays and Sundays, and at their community providers on Hawaii Island.

Also beginning the week of February 29, 2016, Kaiser Permanente will be making the following changes:
