Hawaiʻi Island Community Health Center
Our name and logo have changed, but our mission, locations, hours, staff and medical providers, our roots and the relationships we have nurtured in our communities around the island remain the same.
Quality Care, Island-Wide
This year, Bay Clinic and West Hawaii Community Health Center, both non-profit Federally Qualified Health Centers, merged operations as Hawai’i Island Community Health Center. This bold move created an integrated system focused on quality care and the delivery of medical, dental, and behavioral health services island wide.
Together as Hawai’i Island Community Health Center, our new organization will continue providing care to our patients and communities. We prioritize a team approach, as a Patient Centered Medical Home with wrap-around services to improve patient experience and outcomes. As a unified team, we look forward to working together to improve the health and wellness of our communities.
Care Regardless of Your Ability to Pay
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we provide care regardless of your ability to pay. No one is turned away for lack of insurance or inability to pay. Our team can assist you with insurance enrollment. Medicaid/Quest, Medicare, and most private insurance plans are accepted, and we offer a Sliding Fee Scale discount based on income level and household size.

In the Words of Our Patients:
“This place is amazing, the staff is friendly, they do everything they can to make sure that you get the help that you need. The doctors are very personable and in tune, and they provide very comprehensive help. I got help signing up for insurance, they got me in as soon as possible. I mean, if there were 10 stars I’d give this place a ten star review.”
