Urgent Care Center Opens One-stop Service In Waipahu

‘Ekahi Urgent Care celebrated the grand opening of its Waipahu clinic Jan. 3 with a blessing, facility tour and staff meet-and-greet.

“Hawaii’s emergency rooms are overburdened, which creates long waits and increased health care costs for the patients,” stated ‘Ekahi Urgent Care’s medical director, Dr. Kevin Lum. “We are excited to give West Oahu residents and their ohana a fast and friendly alternative with high-quality care within an easy one-stop center.”
