t starts with choice.
Our members' choice to find a doctor who's right for them.
And to change doctors at any time they want.

A choice to receive care in the way that works best for them: in person, over the phone, via email, whenever it's convenient. At Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, we believe care isn't just something that happens to our members, it's something every one of them has the right to actively participate in, because they know themselves best.

Our members know it's working, and while we rarely call attention to ourselves, others have noticed. Kaiser Permanente Hawaii received the highest honors from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as well as an Excellent Accreditation status.

We believe care is something every member has the right to actively participate in.

Our Medicare health plan is the only plan in Hawaii to receive a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Seventeen of our primary care clinics are recognized by the NCQA at the highest level as Patient-Centered Medical Homes.

These are our standards.
This is our mission.
Good health is our calling.

For one of the best primary care programs in the country, you want to be here.
