Waiola Church to Host Tropic Care in Lahaina
The historic Waiola Church is hosting Maui County Tropic Care 2018, a no-cost health care clinic at 535 Wainee Street in Lahaina from Aug. 11 through 19. Clinic hours are Monday through Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m. No proof of income, residency or picture ID is required.
Funded by the Department of Defense, Tropic Care 2018 is a joint-service training mission offered free-of-charge by the U.S. military as Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) and includes medical, dental and vision checkups, screenings and exams to all residents of Maui, Molokai and Lanai.
The multiple services available include physical exams, sport physicals for kids with a school form and blood pressure / screening; dental exams, extractions and fillings; and vision screenings, prescriptions and single lens eyeglasses.
One service per person is offered daily on a first come-first serve basis. Patients will not be able to reserve appointments. It is recommended that residents arrive as soon as possible during clinic hours to secure a same-day service time.
Maui Tropic Care 2018 is part of a Department of Defense initiative, providing opportunities to military medical, engineering and support personnel to receive training while making a difference in local community throughout the United States.
“I am thankful to the men and women of our military who come to service the most vulnerable members of our community: the elderly, homeless and uninsured. This is a life-altering community engagement that has been a benefit to the people of Maui County,” said Jen Mather, Waiola Church.
