Traveling to Oahu

Healthcare on Vacation

If you are planning a trip to the beautiful island of Oahu, Kahuku Medical Center is here to meet all your healthcare needs while on vacation. Whether you need ongoing care for a chronic health condition or treatment for an unexpected illness or injury, KMC is on standby to assist.

Preparing for Travel

Preparation is key when planning a successful trip to Oahu. The information in this section will help you plan ahead and make the most of your time in paradise. The Hawaiian Islands website is an excellent resource for Hawaii-specific travel considerations, including helpful packing tips and local weather insights. We also recommend prospective visitors contact their health insurance provider to determine if travel insurance is necessary for out-of-state medical coverage.

If you or a loved one requires ongoing care throughout your vacation, contact Kahuku Medical Center at (808) 293-9221 today.

Visitors to the island can choose from a wide selection of lodgings throughout Oahu. If finding accommodations near a healthcare facility is a priority, the Turtle Bay Resort in Kahuku and the Courtyard By Marriott in La'ie are both less than 4 miles away from KMC. The proximity offers convenience and peace of mind for travelers needing routine care or emergency medical services.

Staying Healthy on Vacation

Before your visit, it's important to evaluate your current health status and medical requirements. If you depend on prescription medication or have a chronic health condition, we advise scheduling a consultation with your Primary Care Provider. Collaborating with them will allow you to create a tailored vacation care plan to address your health needs throughout the trip.

If you require ongoing care while on vacation, please get in touch with KMC's Patient Access Representative to complete the Guest Patient Registration process. Doing so before your trip begins will ensure you spend more time learning to surf or dance hula and less time on paperwork.
