The Hawaii Pacific Health Cancer Center at Pali Momi Medical Center opened its doors on Oct. 30, 2017. It is the first integrated center of its kind serving Central and West Oahu and the only program in the area nationally accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.

Designed with the patient experience in mind, the center offers physician consultations, infusion therapy, cancer navigation services and more, including radiation oncology through a collaboration with the Cancer Center of Hawaii.

With the addition of the infusion center, Pali Momi is able to provide patients centralized access to comprehensive, coordinated cancer care through services that include hydration, blood transfusions and injections, as well as survivorship, navigation, lab services for blood draws, and a dedicated pharmacy.
