Five out of seven primary care clinics have closed their doors since 2002 on the north shore of Kauai. We knew something was wrong, and so the Kauai Community Health Alliance was born. KCHA's Hale Lea Medicine provides both primary care and urgent care walk-in on Kauai's north shore serving the communities of Princeville, Kilauea, Anahola, Hanalei, Haena and Kapaa.
Challenges We Face
Insurance reimbursement rates are often lower than the actual cost of providing healthcare:
Integrative medicine puts the patient at the center and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences that affect a person's health. A growing body of evidence suggests that integrative medicine can successfully address --and to some extent alleviate--many troubling aspects of our current healthcare crisis. It employs a personalized strategy that considers the patients unique conditions, needs and circumstances, helping people regain and maintain optimum health.
The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation has gifted the Kaua‘i Community Health Alliance with a $10,000 grant. The grant honors KCHA’s outstanding contributions as a nonprofit family practice medical clinic.
As a non-profit healthcare organization, Kauai Community Health Alliance thrives on the support of its volunteers and generous gifts from its benefactors.
Kauai Community Health Alliance is organized and operated exclusively in furtherance of the charitable purpose of promoting the health of our community as permitted under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
