Hawaii Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics
People typically think about beaches and tourism in Hawaii, but there are great healthcare options, too. For instance, three of the best hospitals in Hawaii include Queen's Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center, and Straub Clinic and Hospital, all of which are in Honolulu. There are also smaller hospitals and urgent care facilities across the entire state that provide healthcare to residents and tourists alike.
Healthcare in Hawaii
The high tourist population in Hawaii makes health insurance a bit of an issue because many insurance companies do not provide coverage to areas outside a certain range. However, the healthcare facilities in Hawaii never reject care to any person based on their insurance or lack thereof. Plus, the Affordable Care Act that was passed in 2010 will be in full effect in 2014. It will give residents and tourists even more healthcare options in Hawaii. Many of the injuries in Hawaii are related to sports accidents due to all the recreational options in the state.
Urgent Care in Hawaii
Most states provide urgent care facilities where people can get treated for illness and injuries that do not warrant a trip to the emergency room, and Hawaii is no exception. Hawaii has urgent care facilities in all the major cities and on most of the smaller islands. Urgent care facilities are equipped to handle minor lacerations, bone fractures, dislocations, and illness related to respiratory problems. They are one of the best options because they have shorter wait times than the emergency room and the care is less expensive.
