UPDATED VISITATION DUE TO COVID-19
During this time, it is critical that we protect our patients, staff, clinicians and community. Therefore, we are restricting all visitors to our hospitals until further notice. The enhanced visitor restrictions are in alignment with recommendations established by the Honolulu County Health Department. Exceptions may be made for those visiting a patient on comfort/end-of-life care.
Using electronic methods to communicate with a patient and limiting visitor-to-patient contact is an important part of our visitor guidelines during this COVID-19 response period. Every patient has access to a direct line and iPad to facilitate communication with loved ones.
Please note visitation restrictions may evolve over time depending on our response to public health recommendations. Again, we are doing this to protect the health and safety of our patients, staff, clinicians and community. Thank you for your understanding.
All individuals receiving outpatient services at KMC will be screened at the main entrance portico before receiving services. Anyone who does not pass screening will not be allowed into the building and alternative arrangements for services will be made.
