Straub is the leader in patient-centered care for nearly 100 years. Our mission is to create a healthier Hawaii. We believe that working together, we can make the greatest impact on individuals, families and our communities.
Dr. George F. Straub arrived in the islands in the early 1900s with a mission to provide the finest medical care available.
His vision was to create a clinic where patients always came first and where the health needs of the entire family was met under one roof. This vision was realized in 1921 with the opening of The Clinic, Honolulu’s first group practice and specialized clinic.
The Clinic expanded over the years into what is known today as Straub Medical Center, a fully integrated not-for-profit medical center with a 159-bed hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawaii.
With more than 350 employed or contracted physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with expert diagnoses and treatments for more than 32 different medical specialties, including orthopedics, cardiac care, neurology, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, women’s health, vascular and urology.
Straub is home to the Pacific Region’s only multi-disciplinary burn treatment unit. It consistently brings new technologies and innovative medical practices to Hawaii, such as minimally invasive cardiac surgery, total joint replacement, and vascular surgery. It has received numerous national awards recognizing its excellence in patient experience, patient safety, and cardiac and stroke care.
Straub is fully accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent nonprofit organization that certifies health care organizations and programs in the United States.

Hawaiian Language Display
Hawaii Pacific Health and its member hospitals honor the Hawaiian language and its use of diacritical marks, the glottal stop and the macron (okina and kahako). While we use these marks in our communication materials, we have omitted them in our online platforms as they are often limited in their ability to display these marks.
To determine when diacritical marks should be used, refer to Hawaiian Dictionary and Place Names of Hawaii, published by UH Press.
