Kahuku Medical Center doctors can now request medical transport for patients via helicopter to another hospital.
Kahuku Medical Center is pleased to partner with Hawaii Life Flight to now serve the Oahu Ko‘olauloa and North Shore coast communities with helicopter transport. Air medical transport services compliment KMC’s 24 hour Emergency Care and will utilize KMC’s helicopter pad on campus. Air transport services are currently available 8am – 8pm, and beginning January 1, 2017, patients can be transported 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Transportation from Kahuku Medical Center to Honolulu and Kailua acute care hospitals is approximately 15 minutes.
SOME SIMPLE FACTS:
• Air medical transports are determined by your attending physician based upon your medical necessity.
• As a member of the Hawaii Life Flight ‘Ohana Plus Program, an affordable fee waives the co-payment and deductible. As a member you will have no out-of-pocket costs when taking a medically necessary flight.
• ‘Ohana Plus Program is $30/year for a single or family plan with health insurance and $60/year for those without health insurance. To sign-up online, visit www.HawaiiLifeFlight.com. For more information, please contact Hawaii Life Flight at (808) 833-2270 or email@example.com.
