Aloha, and Welcome to North Hawaii Community Hospital

North Hawaii Community Hospital (NHCH) is a non-profit community hospital that serves more than 30,000 residents and visitors in North Hawaii.  NHCH opened in May 1996 after decades of dreaming and nearly ten years of planning.  Its mission is to improve the health and wellness of the people of North Hawaii.  Its vision emerged from the desire to be “not just another hospital” but rather the most healing hospital in the world. 

In January 2014, NHCH became part of The Queen’s Health Systems, a not-for-profit corporation established in 1985 to bring expanded healthcare capabilities to the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Basin.  The Queen’s Health Systems mission is to fulfill the intent of Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV to provide in perpetuity quality healthcare services to improve the wellbeing of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawaii.
