A new vision for health careWhy KCHA?

The Physical Therapy needs of Kauai's north shore have grown enormously over the last ten years. Our communities now need expanded and improved Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation services.

North Shore Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine is the physical therapy department presently operating out of Hale Lea Medicine.

Because there is a growing need for Kauai's north shore residents to receive high-level physical therapy and rehabilitation services close to home, KCHA has begun an initiative to raise the funds for this to occur.
