Why We’re Different


At Hawaii Pacific Health, we’re strongly committed to meeting the needs of people from all walks of life—whether they’re patients from the diverse communities we serve or our own employees. We promote recognition and respect for individual and cultural differences, and always strive to make our employees feel valued and appreciated

Hawaii – with its history of attracting immigrants from Asia and other parts of the world – stands far above the rest, with nearly one-in-four residents (24%) identifying as multiracial, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data

We believe that diversity is a driver for excellence. Therefore, regardless of your age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, military/veteran status, disability status, religious belief or other defining characteristics, we value the impact your differences have on creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels they belong.


Hawaii Pacific Health is a not-for-profit health care system, which means all of our earnings are reinvested into improving medical equipment and facilities. We also invest in research, education and training as well as charity care for underserved people within our island communities.
