Waikiki Health Center

The Hawaii Homeless Health Care Project (HHHCP) is a cooperative effort of four private, nonprofit health care clinics: the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, Kalihi-Palama Health Clinic, Community Clinic of Maui, and Waikiki Health Center.

Services

Four clinics provide directly or make referrals for primary care, substance abuse services, emergency health care, inpatient referrals, mental health services, outreach, eligibility assistance, podiatry, and dental and vision services. Waikiki is fiscal agent for the project and also provides direct service. Waianae's focus is primary care, nutrition and health education, mobile health outreach, off-site clinical services, case management, and benefits assistance. Kalihi-Palama operates three satellite facilities in downtown Honolulu. Waikiki operates CARE-A-VAN mobile outreach. Community Clinic of Maui operates three sites in Wailuki and Lahaiha.

Linkages

The Hawaii Department of Health facilitates project design, implementation, and evaluation. An organization of primary health care providers has been established to develop an insurance program for unemployed citizens.
