Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience's Mission is to serve our community through outreach especially to those who need medical care the most.
Our Mission is to partner and work with international and local institutions to advance the care and research of neurological conditions in Hawaii like Alzheimer's and others.
Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience is recognized nationally for our work in neuroscience conducted at the Clinical Research Center (link) and BRITL (Brain Research, Innovation & Translation Labs). HPN’s robust clinical and academic research programs fosters a culture of innovation and collaboration. Physicians and scientists work closely within and across centers, institutes and schools to collaborate whether they are basic laboratory based scientists, bio statisticians or clinicians to encourage cross disciplinary translation bench to bedside research.

I – Innovate, embrace change, monitor outcome and efficiency; continue to attract groundbreaking neuroscience research to Hawaii. HPN’s Clinic Research Center has been privileged to oversee 100’s of research projects that assist not only local residents but is far-reaching throughout the pacific islands and beyond. Patients no longer travel to mainland for ground breaking research when they can find all their clinical care with the latest most advanced therapies found around the world.
V- Value-based medicine is the standard practice of emphasizing the value that is received from intervention by quantifying the quality of life and/or the improvement in length of life conferred by the intervention. At HPN it is a privilege to care for patients who entrust their healthcare needs to us. We strive to bring value regardless of their ability to pay.
