Covid19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

Overview

Our focus at Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, Kauai Region (KVMH, SMMH and its clinics), is to keep our residents and patients safe. In light of the three cases identified on Kauai and the other cases identified on Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island we are implementing tighter restrictions. This includes implementing screening stations at designated entry points to our facilities and suspending visitation to our acute and long-term care units. Exceptions are being made on a case-by-case basis for minors, OB patients and those reaching the end of their life. We are taking steps to reduce the potential risk and to keep you, our patients, visitors, staff, and community safe.

Covid-19 Symptoms

Precautions for our Kūpuna (Seniors)

 Kūpuna (our Seniors) are at a greater risk for COVID-19, especially those who have underlying health conditions. The Hawaii Department of Health recommends that older adults and individuals with underlying health issues avoid non-essential travel, including cruises, avoid large crowds. Remember to wash your hands often and keep medications and groceries on-hand.

Guidance for Patients with Clinic Appointments

Patients who are sick and have an appointment with their physician for a regular check-up, will need to change your visit to when you are feeling better.  Please contact us so we can reschedule your appointment. 

If you’d like us to check you because you are sick, call your primary care provider. You may be able to get checked by phone, or communicate with your provider through the CernerHealth portal.

We are following the advice of the experts at the CDC and the Hawaii Department of Health who tell us that people who are mildly ill should stay at home, unless they need help for that illness.

 Visitor Restrictions

Because Kauai is actively experiencing community spread of COVID 19, we are implementing safety measures to keep our HHSC Kauai Region patients, residents and staff safe during this time.

The Kauai Region Healthcare Facilities were established in 1996 through the passage of Act 262 of the Hawaii State legislature.  Through this passage, the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) was formed.  As a part of the HHSC organization, the Kauai Region Healthcare Facilities are “safety-net” facilities that deliver essential medical care to surrounding communities serving everyone in need of medical attention, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

The Kauai Region Healthcare Facilities is comprised of the following hospitals and primary care clinics: 

The Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital (KVMH) was named in honor of Kauai Veterans and has been a part of the community since 1957. KVMH is a full service Critical Access Hospital (CAH). 

The Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital (SMMH) originally opened in 1917 as a 50-bed hospital for local tuberculosis patients.  In 1996, SMMH became part of the HHSC Kauai Region Healthcare Facilities.  In 2005, SMMH became a CAH Hospital and opened a 24-hour emergency department.

Our primary care clinics are strategically located in various towns across the island and assist in providing easy access to healthcare for our Kauai island communities and visitors alike.
