Kaiser Permanente Hawaii will begin construction on a new 9,300 square foot rehabilitation specialty center this month and expects to open by fall of 2013, according to a company announcement today.
The new center will be called Maui Lani Elua and will house physical and occupational therapies, physiatry, neurology, and occupational health services. It will be located next door to the Maui Lani Clinic in on Maui Lani Parkway in Wailuku.
“Establishing this rehabilitation specialty center will provide our members with a comprehensive range of related health services in one location while allowing for the expansion of other specialty care services at our nearby Wailuku Clinic including ob/gyn, general surgery, dermatology, oncology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, and orthopedics,” said David Ulin, MD, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii’s Maui physician in charge, in a statement to the media.
“Our new center will allow us to better accommodate and respond to the community of Maui’s need for high quality health care by providing coordinated rehabilitation services all under one roof.”
Other Kaiser Permanente service locations currently include clinics in Lahaina and Kihei, and a behavioral health services office on Wells Street in Wailuku. Last year, the organization expanded and renovated its pharmacy at Maui Lani Clinic, opened Rainbow Dialysis Center at its Wailuku Clinic, and relocated CT scan services to Maui Lani Clinic.
