Our Commitment to Neighbor Island Neuroscience Patients Dedicated NICO (Neighbor Island Care Coordination) Dept & Hotline (808) 564-6127
ABOUT

Every year, more than 2,000 patients from Hawaii’s neighbor islands travel to Hawaii’s leading neuroscience facility on Oahu to seek specialized neuroscience care at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience (HPN). This is at least 10% of the more than 20,000 patients who are being cared for at HPN.

Since March 2020 COVID travel restriction, HPN specialists and providers have made significant sacrifices to travel to Big Island to provide care to these patients to ease their burden of travel.

GREAT NEWS – As interisland restrictions ease, patients are finding it easier to travel to Oahu. HPN will be implementing the following expansions of services to meet the needs of our Neighbor Island patients.

1) QUALITY – “ONE STOP SHOP”

To provide high quality multidisciplinary neuroscience specialty care on Oahu so they can have easy and timely access to services not available on neighbor islands.

  • Comprehensive fully integrated neuroscience team of neurologists, physiatrists, geriatrician, sleep specialist
  • Ground breaking research options (previously only available on Mainland) FREE to qualified patients
  • Onsite (often same day) full array of diagnostic capabilities including EEG, EMG, Sleep Studies/PSG, MSLT, Cognitive Capacity Evaluations, close by 3T MRI/Imaging facilities.
 

2) CONVENIENCE (Clinic Adjacent to Airport & Dedicated Neighbor Island Care Coordination)

Because we are sympathetic to the burden bear by patients and caretakers to travel to Oahu, we have taken the following steps to ease the burden by:

1. Established a dedicated Neighbor Island Care Coordination (NICO) dept. and staff to ensure our patients’ interisland flights, ground transportation making their travel easy and without hassle.

Dedicated Neighbor Island Care Coordination (NICO) Dept. Hotline: (808) 564-6127

2. Clinic adjacent to Airport (less than 15 minutes drive) at Waikele Factory Outlet Areas

HPN WEST OAHU, 94898 Lumiaina St. #203, Waipahu, HI 96797

3) COST & TIME EFFECTIVE (Same day service)
In most instances (not all), testing completed SAME DAY followed by clinical care by onsite specialists is a significant cost and time savings for both patients and payers to avoid having to return back to “go over results of testing” and a win-win for all!

Our Neuroscience Center of Excellence is recognized nationally for its work not only in providing most advanced cutting edge treatments, but also work with other centers in US and global to offer groundbreaking Clinical Research. >>Clinical Trials Available in Hawaii
