In response to 141098: What About Pahala Hospital?, posted by Harry Pritikin on Tuesday, 4 July 2017, at 6:37 a.m.

Aloha, Harry.

The closest urgent care clinic is in Kona.

We do have the Bay Clinic in Na'alehu, and Ka'u Wellness in Ocean View. I've never used either as my insurance is with Kaiser, so I don't know what level of services are offered. I've heard lots of good things about the doctor at Ka'u Wellness.

The county hospital in Pahala does have an emergency room, although when I took my husband there on a Saturday night there was no doctor on duty -- just an emergency room nurse. He did a good job taking care of my husband. Luckily we do have an ambulance in Na'alehu with well-trained EMTs.

   Δ Only one ambulance for all of Ka'u?
