Our nationally recognized, highly trained doctors and staff are committed to providing top-quality, comprehensive, and well-coordinated cancer care for adults and children.
We want patients to benefit from the latest medical breakthroughs, so we participate in research and clinical trials. Our specialized cancer care means that patients can be treated at home in Hawaii, close to their network of family and friends.
We know that dealing with cancer is more than a medical issue. Our support programs help patients and families cope with the challenges of both the disease and the treatment.
